At the 2019 MAFE Convention in January, Dee Wilson was
awarded the Zone 6 Adult Volunteer of the Year. She was
chosen for this award from all the fairs in the U.P.

before becoming a board member in 2018. She took over
the still display department in 2018 due to our
superintendent having a family emergency just before the
She helps at all of our workbees from the setting up to the
cleaning up after the fair, tagging of our market animals,
and can also be found helping out in the Livestock Office
when she has a few spare minutes.
When Dee took on the still display department for the
fair, it included setting up the display tables, helping
exhibitors register their projects, helping with the
judging of the projects and of course all the paper work
that goes with the job.
THANK YOU DEE WILSON FOR ALL YOU DO

The Chippewa County Fair Board would like to congratulate
Lindsey Kronemeyer on being one of the winners of the
Michigan Association of Fairs and Exhibits $1000
scholarships. This scholarship is given to young people that

HALL OF FAME - The Chippewa County Fair chose Harley Boone as their 2018
Hall of Fame nomination. This award is given to fair people who have spent
most of their lives doing what needs to be done to make sure that county fairs
continue in the state.
Harley and his wife Emily moved to Sault Ste Marie in 1988 with his job. Right
away he became involved with the Chippewa County Fair.
In 1990, Harley ran for the fair board and won a position. Right away, he
became involved in the Harness Horse Racing Program helping the
superintendent. The following year he took over as the superintendent when
our then superintendent decided to step down due to health issues.
This is a job that Harley takes very seriously. In the early years, he and his
wife would host a golf outing and cook-out for all the harness horse owners,
drivers and just about anyone that showed up to participate.
While on the Chippewa Co. Fair Board, Haley sat on the livestock and
emergency committees. He did step down from the board when his health
would not allow him to help with the projects, but he has not given up the
Harness Horse Racing Superintendent job.
THANK YOU HARLEY FOR ALL YOU DO FOR US

Youth Volunteer - The Chippewa County Fair Board chose Alex French as our
2018 Volunteer of the Year.
Alex is a wonderful young man that has grown up at the fair. He will help any
exhibitor during the fair by helping them prepare the animal for the show or sale
He is one of those young exhibitors that is willing to help everyone and is willing
to step up to do whatever needs to be done.
Alex spent the day helping at the scale house on entry day, helping move steers,
hogs and lambs from the scale to their assigned pens and there were a few
animals that did not want to spend tine at the Chippewa County Fair. He also
helped load out animals on the last days. This year because of the bridge
closure on Labor Day, we shipped animals to processors below the bridge one
day and the remaining the following day.
THANK YOU ALEX FOR BEING THERE TO HELP
2019 CHIPPEWA COUNTY FAIR BOOK COVER WINNER - CALEB KLIER
Welcome to the 2019 Chippewa County Fair. My name is Caleb Klier and I am 11 years old. I was both surprised
and grateful that my fair book cover was chosen for this year's fair book cover. I have always enjoyed drawing
and creating pictures. I also enjoy playing video games, building sets and new creations with Legos, and riding
my bike. I have been involved with 4-H and have shown animals and creating exhibits since I was 5. I have
showed market hogs, lambs, chickens, rabbits along with showing guinea pigs and several crafts in the exhibit
hall each year. It hard to say what I enjoy most about the fair because I enjoy everything that the fair has to offer
which not only includes showing and selling animals, but the rides, food and camping with my family.
I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable time at the 2019 Chippewa County Fair and "treasure" the time with
friends and family,
