Prowers County Fair Board Elects New Officers

The Prowers County Fair Board met in regular session at the Eagles Lodge Thursday, February 24 to elect new officers.

Elected were: Mark Carrigan – Chairperson; Diane Pool – Vice Chairperson; Cindy Bennett – Treasurer and Toni McPherson – Secretary.

Discussion focused on developing a concert act on par with the Josh Abbott band that entertained crowds for last year’s fair. This year’s Demolition Derby is also being scheduled apart from the regular August fair activities, set now for April 30, 2011.

Some fair board members are active in the Wild West BBQ event held during Lamar Days in May. The prize purse for this spring’s event is $10,000 and the Backyard Grillers contest for local residents will be held again this year. The fair board will coordinate with the car show and the Chamber regarding advertising for the Lamar Days Events. The BBQ contests will be held in a different location in Willow Creek Park this year. Lamar Days will be held May 13-15, celebrating Lamar’s 125th anniversary.
