The Huntingdon County Agricultural Association Annual Meeting provided an opportunity for four Tyrone FFA leaders to be heard in the decision-making process for the annual Huntingdon County Fair and other association business.

New directors were elected and other items of business were covered, but the greatest lesson learned by the FFA members in attendance was the large number of people who are needed to host a quality fair.

It was really cool to see how the Huntingdon County Fair runs things and all the work that is put into it, and how it’s not just the people who enter items such as animals, plants, photography, baked goods

— Bailey Woomer

“It was really cool to see how the Huntingdon County Fair runs things and all the work that is put into it, and how it’s not just the people who enter items such as animals, plants, photography, baked goods, etc.,” said sophomore Bailey Woomer, who has been showing livestock at the fair since she was little.

Fair Queen Alyssa Horton, Dairy Princess Abby Corbin, Alternate Dairy Princess Madison Mower, and Fair Queen Ambassadors Nora Hoy and Gracie Rowe were all in attendance.

The FFA members who attended the event enjoyed a dairy bar sponsored by the Huntingdon County Dairy Promotion and a dinner served by the members of the Smithfield Volunteer Fire Co.

The social hour provided an opportunity for the FFA members to engage in conversations with the board of directors, fair volunteers, and other organizations who are instrumental in supporting and helping the fair to be one of the most successful in the state.

“The banquet was a great experience to see a little behind the scenes into what goes into making the fair possible. It also gave us a chance to see other FFA chapters and 4-H clubs from our area,” said junior Nora Hoy.

Hoy was recently selected to serve as a Junior Fair Board member where she will work with six other youth to assist the fair board in promoting and spreading the word about the importance of agriculture through fairs.
