2017 Senior Citizen Volunteer Award Winner

Marj Mitchell is the 2017 winner of this award.  She is
currently the superintendent of the Goat and Draft
Horse Departments. She has also served as Dairy
Superintendent. Marj is always ready to step up and
help where needed.  Every year we are able to count on
her to be the announcer at the various livestock shows
and to help on Saturday at the Market Livestock Sale.  
Her help is greatly appreciated.

Marj was raised in Sault Ste.Marie before moving to the
country when she married Jim.  They have a beef farm
but also have raised dairy cattle, sheep, horses, goats,
chickens and hogs as fair projects for their 3 daughters
that showed at the fair while growing up.  She now has
7 grandchildren that also show at the fair. Marj and Jim
continues to support them in their endeavors.

Thank you Marj for always being there when we need
