The 2011 Linn County Fair was a great success. We are starting to prepare for the 2012 fair. We would like to promote and encourage more open class static and horticulture exhibits at the next fair. When is a better time to start your project then now. Especially with fall around the corner you will have more times on your hand to work on your hobby.
