The Greene County Fair board wants and needs county residents to make this year’s fair the best yet.

“Come share your garden produce agricultural displays, art work, photography, quilting, sewing, hand work, baking, canning, genealogy, floral, collections. If you have something to share, we will find a class for it,” a fair spokesperson said. The open classes are for exhibitors ages 2-102.

Open class entries can be taken to Clover Hall at the fairgrounds Thursday Thursday between 1 and 7 pm.

Fair-goers will want to see this year’s raffle quilt at Clover Hall. The striking full-size Christmas-themed quilt is made of entries in the 2015 People’s Choice quilt block contest. All materials and the labor to complete the quilt were donated by Suzanne Sievers of the Stitch. Raffle tickets will be available at the fair until Sunday at 2:30 pm, with the drawing at 3 pm.

Quilt blocks for the 2016 People’s Choice contest can be entered at the open class exhibit area until Friday evening. Fair-goers can vote for their favorite quilt block by dropping money in the corresponding jar.

All proceeds from the quilt raffle and the quilt block contest are donated to the local 4-H program. “Thanks to our public support, the open class superintendents and all the work by Suzanne and staff, we gave $400 to the Greene County 4-H Foundation to aid local 4-H members attend special 4-H activities to help the youth expand their educational leadership development,” the spokesperson said.
