Fair Guide - Pontotoc County 2020 - Page 7

Welcome The Pontotoc County Free Fair has been a long-standing tradition in Pontotoc County since 1916. This year has met us with challenges and tough decisions. Our priority as county commissioners is the health and welfare of our county residents. With the COVID 19 pandemic and the increasing number of COVID cases in Pontotoc County we felt it best to cancel all large gathering at the Agri Plex, including the 2020 Pontotoc County Free Fair. We recognize and apricate all the work and planning that the Pontotoc County Fair Board, The Fair Director, the OSU Extension Staff, and the many volunteers have put into the fair over this past year and know they are all disappointed but understand public safety. We are looking forward to welcoming you back to the 2021 Pontotoc County Fair next September 1st – 4th. 2020 Pontotoc County Commissioners GARY STARNS DIST.1 DANNY DAVIS DIST. 2 JUSTIN ROBERTS DIST. 3 2020 Pontotoc County Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service JANNA KELLEY OSU COUNTY DIRECTOR, FCS/ 4-H BECKY WALKER 4-H Youth Development JAMES ARNOLD Agriculture & 4-H KIM TEACHEY OSU EXTENSION SR.
