Rolling out the red carpet for fair
By Russ Pankonin, The Imperial Republican Co-Publisher
My, how time flies. It seems like just yesterday that school dismissed for the summer. Now, here we are already into the week of Nebraska’s Grandest Fair—The Chase County
People in Chase County take great pride in our county fair—and rightfully so! Without a doubt, the fair has proven itself year in and year out, as one of best county fairs in Nebraska.
This doesn’t just happen. Months of planning goes into each year’s fair and as soon as this year’s fair is completed, planning will begin already for next year.
As host for the fair, Imperial has the unique opportunity to roll out the red carpet for the thousands of people who will visit our community this week.
It’s the little things that make the big impressions, like making sure your lawn is mown, and your property looks neat and tidy.
It’s the little things like saying hi to someone you don’t know or to extend a helping hand in one way or another that makes a difference.
You never know whether the person you said hello to or person you extended your helping hand to might become the next citizen of Imperial, because of the friendliness we extended during the visit here.
Your ongoing support for an event that brings more people to Chase County than any other event remains crucial for the fair’s success. Your presence at this year’s fair and grandstand shows will go a long ways in showing how much we value our fair.
This is our chance to show what living in small-town rural America is all about. It’s our time to shine. Let’s not let that opportunity get away.
