The Cherry County Ag Society met last evening to continue making plans for the 2024 Cherry County Fair and Rodeo. The theme this year is ‘Sew It, Grow It, Show It’. This year the Ag Society went to local schools and asked for artwork and theme suggestions for the fair. Syerra Dawson
submitted the winning poster including theme. Something that returns this year will be a Miss Rodeo Cherry County contest which will be held on July 13th. 10 applications were picked up for potential entries. Shaylee Arendt is a committee member. They are also planning a rodeo dance in cooperation with The Corner Pub, a mechanical bull, trade show, ranch rodeo, regular rodeo and Sunday Funday will be back.

The Ag Society is also preparing for the annual 4th of July Demolition Derby. The derby will have a few changes this year. The Ag Society will sponsor the fireworks display after the derby and will be accepting donations to help pay for the display.

The members have also been working on plans for some needed expansion at the fairgrounds facilities, including more electrical hook-ups, new shop building with restrooms and showers and more. Ag Society President Andy Dawson stated that the entire board is committed to making the Cherry County Fair, bigger and better including family entertainment and activities.
