In the second year of the Little Mr. and Miss Linn County Fair contest, there were 13 contestants. In order to run for Little Mr. or Miss the child must reside in Linn County, be in kindergarten through third grade, and have participated in the fair in some way. The Linn County Fair would like to give a big thanks to the Little Mr. and Miss Contest partner, Joel Rochleau at Security State Bank, who made the event possible this year. They would also like to thank the companies who donated prizes to this year’s contest: The Play Station, Chuck E. Cheese, Waterhouse Centre in Central City, Dairy Queen in Marion, Vance Wickham with Farm Bureau Financial Services, and Security State Bank in Springville.
The 2012 Little Miss Linn County Fair is Morgan Nachazel. She is the daughter of Joe and Michelle Nachazel of Central City, Iowa. Morgan is eight years old and attends Springville Schools. Her favorite thing about the Linn County Fair is the first night of the fair because she gets to have her projects judged and at night she gets to see the free country concert.
The 2012 Little Mr. Linn County Fair is Richard Hansen. He is the son of Donald and Melissa Hansen of Marion, Iowa. Richard is nine years old and attends Linn Grove Elementary. His favorite things about the fair are playing with his friends at the fair, watching the animal exhibits, and eating pie and ice cream.
Congratulations Morgan and Richard! And thank you again to the event partner, Joel Rochleau with Security State Bank in Springville!
