Property preparations for the upcoming Wallowa County Fair will take place next Thursday, July 31, when weeds will be pulled, windows washed and the food booth put in running order. In the past anywhere from 30 to 50 volunteers have showed up for a two-hour working blitz followed by a pot luck. Organizers hope that this year will be no exception.
The work party will last from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. with fairgrounds manager Randy Garnett giving out work assignments. The fair board will supply hot dogs for the pot luck.
Volunteers are encouraged to bring a pot luck dish, rags, hose, rakes and possibly a weed eater. People who are unavailable to work that Thursday but are still interested in volunteering time may contact Garnett at 426-4097.
The fair is scheduled Sunday, Aug. 2, through Saturday, Aug. 9
Persons interested in working within the food booth during the fair will need a food handlers license. A food handlers training session has been scheduled at 2 p.m. Wednesday, July 30, at the Community Connection building in Enterprise. The 4-H Extension Service will refund the $10 training fee for any 4-H leaders who take the class.
