The Delta County Chamber of Commerce would like to extend a huge appreciation to all of those participating, attending and sponsoring this past Saturday’s annual County Fair.

“It was a perfect day for a fair – showcasing local youth and their livestock, vendors had a great turnout and from the lawn tractors pulling their way to the end,” said Delta County Chamber Board Director President Kathy Houchins. “And the finale just sitting and relaxing to some great music that even got a rainbow.
