to Know Your Fairboard
Over the next
few months we will be getting to know a little more about the
people elected to serve the Tuscarawas County Agricultural
Society. We will start with this year's Executive Committee.
Keep checking back for new information and fun facts!
Bud Lahmers has been on the
Tuscarawas County Fairboard for over 30 years. During this
time, he has served on numerous committees. He is most known
for his work on the Concessions and Harness Racing committees.
On April 6, 2013, the Greater Ohio Showmen's Association named
Bud the "2012 Concession Manager of the Year." CONGRATULATIONS
- The Secretary/Treasurer of
the Tuscarawas County Agricultural Society is Leigh Maple.
Leigh is enjoying her second year working with the Fairboard.
She loves every part of the fair. Leigh would like for the
community to get to know the "people behind the scenes." Keep
checking our website and facebook page as we will introduce
some of these people over the next few months.
- The 2013 Third Member of the
Executive Committee is Rodney Gordon. Rodney owns and operates
Gordon Milk Transport. He and his wife, Deb, have been heavy
supporters of the 4-H program for many years. Their children,
Samantha, Drew, and Craig have grown up in the program, and
continue to be involved by encouraging the next generation.
Rodney's favorite part of the Fair is watching the 4-H and
FFA youth work with their animals. He believes being on Fairboard
is a great learning experience. People would be surprised to
know that Rodney was never in 4-H as a young man. Rodney would
like the public to get to know more about our youth and the
projects that they are involved in, so stay tuned as we work
with the 4-H Extension Office to gain some insight into our
Tuscarawas County 4-H Youth.
- The 2013 Senior Fairboard
Vice President is Kevin Hursey. Kevin resides in Washington
with his wife Shannon. They have a son and daughter that
program. Kevin's favorite part of the fair is meeting people
and catching up with friends that you only seem to see
once a year. His favorite duty on the Fairboard is being on
Truck & Tractor Pull Committee. Kevin believes people
would be surprised to know how many people work behind
asking nothing in return, to ensure a successful Fair.
- The 2013 Senior Fairboard President
is Todd Kendle. Todd resides in New Philadelphia with his
wife Chris, and two daughters. Todd's favorite part of the
is interacting with the 4-H & FFA Youth. He believes
that the Junior Fair is an integral part to Fairweek and
support of the 4-H Extension program. Todd's favorite duty
on the Fairboard is organizing the Truck & Tractor Pulls.
People would be surprised to know that he is calm and easy
