County fair makes a grand opening


At the opening ceremonies Saturday morning on the Clinton County Fairgrounds, Clinton County Fairboard President Scot Gerber spoke about facility improvements on the grounds, in particular a new 50-stall horse barn. He said funding for that was possible thanks to Speaker of the Ohio House of Representatives Cliff Rosenberger, who Gerber said was instrumental, and the Ohio Department of Agriculture. The work of assembling stalls in the barn was done through volunteer labor, the fairboard president said. Pictured are the people who gathered around the flag pole for the official opening of the 2017 county fair.
