•Stephanie Buzynski asks us to share that the Grimes County Fair Association will be holding a public workshop to address facility rental and maintenance fees paid to the County concerning the annual Youth Fair. The meeting will be at the Fair Grounds, Tuesday, March 20, at 6 p.m. Everyone is encouraged to come and share their ideas. Thanks Grimes County Fair Board.

Youth across Grimes county benefit and participate in the fair and businesses benefit from the extra people in town eating, buying gas, etc., and many people don’t realize how much the fair must pay to use the facilities that week, most think we are there for free.

We are just trying to get an honest/fair proposal together for what we feel we should pay the county to use the facilities for that week, if you have questions my number is 936-661-5557
