First off I am a volunteer at the fair every year and let me say I am no longer on the board but we still volunteer that week to help out in the livestock,blue ribbon sale and the scholarship auction.. Which are things that my family is passionate about!! We have to start somewhere and it needs to start with more ppl getting involved and helping you have to give up some of your own time to help improve what we have!!! Take the part of the fair that you love and offer to take it over I promise every bit of help is appreciated!!! And it does take money if we want to improve which means we need grant money, and maybe look into charging but in order for these things to ever happen we need more voices. I invite you to come to the next meeting in October and voice these options and offer your help if you are serious about changing these concerns and problems!!

they will cover all that at the November election on what was spent and what was brought in at that meeting and its all open to the public and there is no grant money that's why we have to work with our state rep.to help with funding for our county but i do invite you to come with those questions and any others you can think of between now and November and ask the board! Lets try to make next year bigger and better than ever!! I am ready for the challenge and will help anyway I can if we can get more ppl involved and interested like you,, Thanks for your concerns and please come and make you question heard

Thanks Jennifer for the info. There may come a time The RCFB will have to ask for a small entry fee that's why making public the finance is important for the community to know if there is a need or not.

I agree, the more information that is put out and the more "transparent" the RCFB can be, the better. Once the public is more aware of the facts, I believe they will be willing to become more involved and then volunteer more.
More avenues of advertising, such as free use of the various social media, also need to be used, rather than just the catalogs and the website.

I agree with the small fee there is nothing you go to that is free anymore. And all the records are public you can go to any of the meetings and listen to the funds, I don't know off hand how much money they have but I do invite you to the Nov meeting and they can answer all of your questions..

yes totally agree with you there are tons of social media out there to use but there again it's getting someone in there to take on that role to help out and help keep the website updated and doing more advertising

Pocahontas could book a bigger carnival,but they probably would not come back again after the first year.If your people don't have money to spend there is no way a large fancy carnival is going to keep booking there because it costs even more for them to get down the road,pay help,etc. than a small one!
