Seneca County Fair board reviews demo derby, repairs

Seneca County Agricultural Society reviewed recent events and pending repairs Tuesday.

Recently elected members Rod Daniel, Aaron Howell and Dave Hufford were sworn in by President Brian Staib. Following the in-meeting ceremony, the board discussed the recent Fall Demolition Derby. With 126 cars in the mix, Staib said the event was “excellent,” coming away with a profit of more than $2,200.

The board voted to maintain horse stall rental fees, evaluate trash removal and electric account contracts, and to continue receiving quotes for the necessary fence and other grounds repairs, including new carpeting in the fair board office.

Out of 10 applicants, a new Junior Fair coordinator has been hired to replace Nicole Hoover, who is resigning at the end of the year. The Junior Fair Foundation is looking to add a gun show to next year’s flea market, slated for the third week of April.
