Thayer County Fair parade organizers want to make this year’s fair a special one as the county gets ready to celebrate its 100th anniversary.
Started in 1812, the local summer celebration will hold its centurion birthday August 9-12 at the fairgrounds site in Deshler.
Because this is a special year for the fair, parade organizers are looking for a special person to serve as Grand Marshal of the parade. The search is on for the oldest, living person that has served on the Thayer County Fair board.
Anyone who has knowledge of a former fair board member who would qualify for this honor is asked to contact one of the following Deshler Lions, Dennis Schmidt 402-365-4189; Ron Cazee 402-365-7502; or Gordy Fleming 402-365-7785.
