DEDICATION Robby Higdon 1975-2019

The 2019 Grayson County Fair catalog is dedicated to Robby Higdon. Robby was a man who loved his community to the fullest. He owned Robby Higdon Contracting, and was a member of the Knights of Columbus, served on the jail ministry, District 1 Magistrate, family man and member of Saint Elizabeth Catholic Church in Clarkson. Anyone who knew him, knows of his tireless efforts to make our community a better place for our children. From donating his time, materials, and equipment to help build concession stands, to planning of the erecting of the grandstand bleachers at the fairgrounds. Saint Paul school is a benefactor from his knowledge of fund raising, putting playground equipment together, painting and remodeling of classrooms. One of his favorite donations was candy to the community Easter egg hunts. These are a few examples of his willingness to help. Most of Robby’s work for the community was done in private. If he knew you needed some help, he quietly went about it and got what you needed. Robby also had a passion for orchestrating peace within the community and he continually strived to help people get along with and respect their neighbors. Robby liked to make people laugh. He was the guy that lit up every room that he walked into, and he was the life of the party. He was an avid Duke fan, most likely for the sheer comradery with his many buddies that were Kentucky fans. Robby also liked politics. As a member of the Republican Party, he loved to debate the county and national politics. One of his goals was to become a magistrate. In November of 2018 that happened when he was elected as District 1 Magistrate. In January of 2019 before family and friends he was sworn in as magistrate. Although his time at this position was short, he worked to make the first district a better place.

A program that helps less fortunate children at Christmas time. Donations from the Knights auction helped fund this outing. In 2016 the Higdon family was awarded the Knights Family of the Year. Your family had to be nominated and the criteria was based on what you have done in your life. What an honor that was bestowed on the family with this award. Robby shared his life with wife, Nichole and they were blessed with five children.

Robby was an active member of the Knights of Columbus, Father Carrol White Council 6743 and the Father Michael J. McGivney Assembly 3021. In 2011 he spearheaded the Shop with a Knight program.

It was said recently: Robby did more for this community in his 43 years of life than most people do in a lifetime. His love for community service saw no boundaries. A legacy we should all strive for.

President’s Comments

• Prizes will be paid immediately after judging.

Dear Friends, Welcome to the 2019 edition of the Grayson County Fair catalog. The fair board and the stockholders work hard to combine their efforts to bring our community the best possible fair experience. We now work with some of the top promotions in our area, as well as one of the best ride providers available. You’ll notice some price changes this year, and, while they are never popular, unfortunately, they are sometimes necessary. With maintenance, utility and insurance costs always increasing, we continually try to keep things in check. Instead of raising every night evenly, we decided to keep Tuesday and Wednesday at $10 per person all inclusive, and raised Thursday, Friday, and Saturday to $15 per person. We do understand it may not be popular at first, but our goal was to be able to accommodate everyone as much as possible, regardless of income level, to enjoy the fair. Many thanks to everyone who continues to come out and enjoy the Grayson County Fair, and we hope to see you there. Sincerely, Tony Swift, Grayson County Fair Board President

• Management will not be responsible for accidents, injuries or losses.
