Letter to our fair patrons Welcome to the 140th annual Stevens County Fair; it seems that one fair just gets finished and the planning for the next one is underway in just days. Last year’s fair was a huge success and now we are finding our dedicated fair board working hard to bring in another successful event in 2013. The premium book is hot off the press and filled with all sorts of information about scheduled events for the 4-H youth, entertainment at this year’s fair, open class entry information, the Enduro Race, or the Demo Derby. The premium book contains a map of the fairgrounds to easily find where an event is taking place. Please also note all the wonderful sponsors of the Stevens County Fair. The businesses who purchase advertisement space in the premium book or those who donate towards entertainment help to defray the costs to put on the Stevens County Fair. We appreciate all of the donations and ads very much! Because of these donations, we are able to offer Free Entertainment, Free Parking, and a Free Gate! Thursday is Day Care Day at the fair. Day care providers are encouraged to ride the city bus and come to the fairgrounds between 9 and 11 a.m. There will be several emergency vehicles for the children to check out. They can also visit the old schoolhouse. The FFA youth will be giving the children a tour through the remodeled children’s barnyard and will give a lesson on agriculture. At

the end of the tour, there will be a magic show and a special treat for the children. Friday is Senior Citizens Day at the fair. When senior citizens use the coupon located in this premium book, you can redeem it at any of the food vendors for 50 cents off a food item. The coupon is good for persons 62-years of age or older for one time only and only on Friday. We have some excellent grandstand performances lined up: Tonic Sol-fa on Thursday night, Triple B rodeo on Friday night, Vintage Car race and Enduro Race on Saturday night, and the Demo Derby on Sunday night. We have several free stages that will have all sorts of musical and magical acts. We will also showcase local talent by having local dancers and Tae Kwon Do and Judo demonstrations.

Wayne Lemmerman selected as 2013 District 7 Fair Person of the Year

This January 2013, at the Minnesota Federation of County Fairs’ State Convention, Wayne Lemmerman received the honor of being chosen District 7’s Fair Person of the Year. Wayne is an active member of the Stevens County Fairboard and has been for over 15 years. He has served in the positions of Vice President and Member-at-Large on the Executive Board, and serves on the Long Range Planning Committee. Wayne “lives” at the fair year round. Once the current year’s fair has ended, he is already planning “in his mind” of what he wants to get accomplished for next year’s fair. Wayne is also active with the Rock the Groundz committee that has put on a weekend of rock music performances the last three years at the fairgrounds. Wayne’s special

project during the fair is the well attended Demo Derby. He does all the organizing and behind-the-scenes work for putting on this successful event. Because of Wayne’s background in welding and manufacturing, he has been instrumental in designing benches and picnic tables that are set around the fairgrounds during the fair. They are well-built and comfortable and fairgoers use them to enjoy eating fair food, or just taking a break to rest at the fair. The benches and picnic tables are used to advertise local businesses or are memorials for deceased loved ones. Wayne can’t seem to catch up on all the orders for people wanting to sponsor benches or tables. Wayne is married to Shellie and they have two daughters. When there are things to do at the fairgrounds you can bet that all four members of the Lemmerman family will be there helping. The family is very active in 4-H as well. Wayne works as a supervisor at Backman Welding and Robotics. He has lots of opportunity to meet and visit with companies and individuals in Stevens County and beyond. Through this networking he has brought many new opportunities to the Stevens County Fair, including the first business employee appreciation gathering during the fair. This event brought many new people to the Stevens County Fair who might not otherwise have attended. Many were so impressed that they have plans to attend again next year. Wayne is a “get-er-done” type of guy. He knows what needs to be done and he pitches in to get that work done without fail and this is just one of the many reasons why Wayne was an excellent choice for Fair Person of the Year for District 7. Congratulations Wayne!

Family Fun Show Carnival Family Fun Show Carnival will again fill the midway at the Stevens County Fair. Not only is this fair a free gate fair, it has one of the most affordable midways in the region. If you stop and buy advance ride tickets, you only pay the low price of $1.70 per ride. If you compare this to other fairs or even Valley Fair you are getting a great buy. Family Fun Shows is one of the few that still take the one ticket per ride any age. What does that mean? No matter how young or old you are, you can ride any ride at the fair for just the one ticket. You can buy advance ride tickets in many locations, and they are sold in strips of 10 for $17. The advance ride tickets are o n l y on sale until the first day of the fair, then you will have to pay the higher amount at the midway box office, and even this is a great buy compared to other fairs and carnivals. Many of you have been at other fairs and when you look at the ride prices, you see costs of over four dollars a ride and the need for more than one ticket per ride, but, not here at the Stevens County Fair. It’s one low price and one ticket for all rides. Advance ride tickets may be found at any of the banks in Stevens County, Unger’s Furniture and at Willie’s Super Valu in Morris. If you are one of the few that don’t get to Morris, you can also mail a check, prior to the cut-off date to: Stevens County Fair Office c/o Ride Tickets P.O. Box 622 Morris, MN 56267 and we will hold them at the fair office for a Will-Call-

Pickup. For those of you that use wrist bands, we will again see that offered at the fair on Thursday night from 6 to 10 p.m. at a cost of $20. Wrist bands are sold on the midway that night starting at 5 p.m. Please note your advance ride tickets are good to use during wrist band night, as well as, every day. The midway opens on Thursday at 4 p.m. and the remainder of the fair at 1 p.m. each day. Greg and Gail, the Family Fun Show owners, offer rides for all ages including kid rides, major rides and family rides, all at the one low price. You can check out some of the rides you will see at the Stevens County Fair online at the carnival’s web site www.familyfunshows.com The site also offers a lot of information about the show, their 2013 route, listings of the great food they offer and some of the good old info of why we have this Midway come back to our fair year after year. Come out to the fair and enjoy our wonderful carnival.

New upgrades at Day Care Day at the the fair in 2013 Fair on Thursday There are new things you can see at the fair as you walk around the grounds for 2013. Thanks to the help from lots of local people and businesses that make things happen. Take your time as you walk around to see some new changes. Last year, just after the fair, the 4-H Exhibit building took on a new look with new outside walls, new back door and a steel roof. You may see the changes in the wash rack area for the livestock, as you drive by or take a trip thru the barns to see this updated area with new wash racks and staging area for judging. It always seems to rain sometime during the fair and rain water becomes a problem. We hope we solved some of this with the new tile that has been installed on the north end of the grounds. As you drive into the south parking lot you will see the changes that we plan to be working on more this summer, again adding more gravel parking lot space. There are a lot more changes that took place since last year’s fair and the Stevens County Fairboard works hard to keep your grounds looking good and making updated, needed changes to make this a fun event when you come out to the fair.

On Thursday, Aug. 8, from 9-11 a.m., day care children are invited to ride the Morris Transit Bus to the Stevens County Fairgrounds for a chance to see some emergency response vehicles, a visit to the old schoolhouse, exotic animals, and see a magic show. They will also get a tour of the FFA Kiddie Barn and the FFA students will be giving an agriculture presentation. A sweet treat will finish the tour. Please RSVP to scfair@yahoo.com by Aug. 1 if you plan to attend.

Take a rest at the Rest Cottage Fair goers are invited to take advantage of the Rest Cottage located next to the office on the Stevens County Fair Grounds. It’s front door is located on the south side of the office building—next to the Homemakers building. It is a two-room, air conditioned facility equipped with baby crib, changing table, bed, and rocking chairs. It’s a wonderful place for feeding and caring for a child. It is also a good place for livestock exhibitors to change clothes. But anyone can enjoy the Cottage as a place for resting. Rest Cottage hours are from noon to 8 p.m. on Thursday and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Food is what a lot of people come to the fair for. If you spend every day at the fair, you will have a hard time trying to sample all the different food items that are available.

Stevens County Homemakers The Stevens County Homemakers consist of 8 clubs with a total of 83 members. The homemakers take turns meeting in members’ homes once a month fall through spring. Some clubs meet during the summer. Each club sends one or two of their members to the lesson planning for the month. The lessons held in the last year were: Promoting the PRCA, Felting with Wool, Exploring the Cost of Food, Mexican Cooking, and Home Enhancing: One Drawer at a Time. The clubs usually submit recipes to be made into a cookbook every year and this year’s theme was salads. The Stevens County Homemakers has a board called the Home Council, each club has a counselor and a co-counselor. The counselor sits on the Home Council and the Home Council makes decisions for all the clubs. If the Counselor can’t attend for some reason, then the Co-counselor usually attends. The Home Council meets in November, April, and July. The counselor and co-counselor each are expected to join a committee. These committees are Fair, Lesson Planning, and Recogniton Banquet. Fair time is very important to the Homemakers and they have their own building on the fair grounds. Each member is asked to exhibit at least one item in the fair and some members enter 30 or more items. Members of the clubs help out at the fair in many ways such as entering exhibits, decorating the building, being judging assistants, and displaying items once they are judged. Fair time is something that the Homemakers look forward too and enjoy every year!

Back by popular demand: The Zerebko Zoo-Tran Zerebko Zoo-Tran is a family owned and operated exotic animal petting zoo and pony ride and is quality family entertainment at its best. Their animals are bottle-raised to achieve maximum people/animal bonding. They strive to create a clean, safe and happy environment for the animals and guests. All groups of animals are kept in individual pens which allows the public to view, pet and feed at their own discretion – no animals jumping up on the children. Possible animals you may see: camel, zebra, fallow deer, buffalo, giraffe, pygmy goats, miniature horses, llama, wallaby, and more. Zerebko Zoo-Tran will also have pony rides, climbing wall and bungee jump for the kids. Zerebko Zoo-Tran will be on the Stevens C o u n t y Fairgrounds from We d n e s d ay through Sunday of the fair. Come and See What We Mean in 2013 and see all the wonderful animals!

Darnen 4-H enjoys meeting people—As a club, we enjoy working at the 4-H food Stand. We enjoy interacting with many customers!

Sign-up to win a bike Show up and stay all Boys, girls, parents, and grandparents – here is your chance to win a bicycle for that special boy or girl in your life. If you buy advanced carnival ride tickets, remember to tear off the entry stub at the bottom of your ride tickets. Put your child’s name on the entry and take the entry stub to the Stevens County Fair office and put in either the boys or girls bucket. One winner from each bucket will be drawn on Sunday, Aug. 11, at 4:25 p.m. on Stage 1. Sponsoring the bicycle give away is the Family Fun Shows Carnival. Last year’s bike winners were Mitchell Moser and Ashley Solvie.

week at the fair What better way to enjoy the fair than camping right where all the action is? Wake up to the chickens crowing and the cattle mooing to get fed each morning. You might hear all of that if you wake early at the fair or if you choose to sleep and maybe you will hear that in your dreams. With all the fun that happens at the fair maybe it’s time that you just hook onto that camper and bring it to the fairgrounds. If you like to rough it just dig out the tent and camp for free. As the fairboard works to improve the grounds, the camping area is just another one of the great things to enjoy. The low price will be just like home which includes water and electrical. Each year we find more people that find how nice it is to bring their camper in and stay for the week. Most people that have camped in the past say it’s the only way to go! You enjoy the fair so much more with that chance to rest or just sit and visit with friends at your campsite then go back for more fair fun. With the addition of the new restroom a couple of years ago, showers were also added to that building for campers and 4-Hers to use. Rates are low from free if you wish to just pop that tent to a low $75 for the full week at the fair with full services.

These fun-filled life-size puppets will be roaming the grounds of the Stevens County Fair, charming everyone from two to a hundred and two. Different puppet characters will be making their joyous appearance to unsuspecting visitors to the fair. Through the “magic” of radio control, these life-like puppets will be visiting and sharing jokes and quips with unsuspecting fair goers. Alfy’s “World of Robotic Puppets” received praises across the United States with appearances in fairs from the Northern reaches of Minnesota to the southern boards of Arizona. They have also been featured at the Mall of America, St. Paul Saint’s Baseball, benefits, and numerous trade shows, and events for seniors and youth.

Triple B Rodeo performs on Friday of the fair

For over 25 years The Berends Family has traveled many miles not only producing rodeos, but also as competitors. In 1991 after successfully producing many open and high school rodeos Scott, Mike and their dad decided to incorporate Triple B Rodeo. Scott met Jill while competing in High School Rodeo and the couple married in 1991. In 2004 Jill and Scott purchased the company with a vision of taking the company to the next level. Currently, Triple B Rodeo produces some of the largest rodeos in the state. Their son Casey is also carrying on the family tradition. Not only is Casey the flank man at the rodeos, he also competes in the bull riding. Like his dad, uncle and cousins, Casey has been fortunate to win the bull riding championship in multiple associations. I guess you can say bull riding is in the Berends genes along with the love of rodeo. One of the ultimate goals of a stock contractor is to have top notch bucking stock. Triple B prides itself on their bucking stock program which has produced many award winning bucking bulls

and horses. Their nephew, Chris Berends, owner of C-B Cattle Company along with Alvin and Carol Berends, provide the outstanding bulls you see at the events. Chris has done a great job raising some outstanding bulls and has made quite a name for himself. Jill and Scott take a lot of pride in their animals and make sure every animal is very well taken care of, so it can perform at its best. Some rough stock awards include 10X MRA Bareback Horse of the year, 8X MRA Saddle Bronc Horse of the year, and 9X MRA Bull of the year. The company is very proud of their amazing staff. From their outstanding pick-up men, announcer, funnyman, and bullfighters, to their wonderful secretaries, and everyone behind the chutes. They only hire the best personnel to make every rodeo performance one to remember. Some of the personal awards include; Scott, along with Mark Gunderson, voted 11X MRA Pick-up men of the year. Jill, along with their secretaries, voted in for the MRA finals the last seven years. In 2008, Scott was inducted into the MRA Hall of Fame and currently serves on the board of MRA directors. Our committees are like family to us, we have been working with some of them for many years. We have been so fortunate to work with these committees. We feel a close relationship makes for a superior event. Triple B Rodeo along with their many of their committees has held the title of the MRA Rodeo of the year the last seven consecutive years. Please take the time to enjoy this family style entertainment. We hope you enjoy rodeo as much as we do. This is not just another sport to us it’s our livelihood. Entertaining rodeo fans is the biggest thrill our family could ever ask for. So be ready for an exciting ride that leaves you craving more – Friday, Aug. 9 – 8 p.m. at the Stevens County Fair grandstands.

Join the Stampede 4-H Club The Stampede 4-H Club is one of the newest clubs in Stevens County. The club formed in 2005 with 22 members and currently has 20 members from 13 families. Stampede is a Project Club, meaning that the focus is on one of the many available projects in 4-H, and in this case, horses. Since the club began, they have been meeting monthly and sponsoring practices throughout the summer at the arenas at the fairgrounds. Stampede also sponsors clinics in Pleasure and Game events, bringing in clinicians from all over Minnesota. Horse enthusiasts from Stevens County and the surrounding counties have attended these clinics. Other activities Stampede has been involved in have been Blue Jean Fun Shows, tack/clothing swaps, and many charitable donations, including to Courage Cottage, West Wind Village, Toys for Tots, Salvation Army, Stevens County Food Shelf, Habitat for Humanity, Prairie Pioneer Days, Sanford’s Morris Dialysis Unit and the Relay for Life in Stevens County. The Relay for Life is a labor of love for the club, as about $1,500.00 and $2,000.00 has been raised for the American Cancer Society in the past 2 years, respectively. The major fund raising activities have been dedicating the luminaries, acquiring donations and holding a Fun and Game night at the fairground’s arenas, called Ride for the Cure. The most touching points of that evening are when the opening address is given and when the luminaries are placed around the outside of the outdoor arena, the lights are turned off and the participants ride their horses, doing laps in silence, for those who’ve been lost to cancer, for survivors, for caregivers and for hopes of a cure for cancer. The Ride for the Cure began when several of our Stampede families were affected by cancer and it just seemed like the natural thing to do.

Stampede 4-H Club—Several members, leaders and parents participated in the Stevens County Relay for Life. Current officers for the Stampede Club are President Diana Nelson, Vice President Jennifer Knutson, Secretary Jordan Carlson, Treasurer Mitch DeBuhr and Reporter Elizabeth Golombiecki. Adult leaders for the club are Kathy DeBuhr and Cindy Knutson. We invite anyone to join the Stampede 4-H Club, with or without a horse, by contacting the Stevens County Extension Office at 320-208-6575 or any current Stampede member.

From rollicking, toe-tapping tunes to beautiful old ballads, hilarious novelty songs, along with traditional toasts, jokes and recitations, it's an evening to remember! Bring your friends and make it a party! Skilly and Duff is a trio specializing in Irish traditional songs. The group got together when Bruce Kelly of Elbow Lake and Mikko Cowdery of Osakis discovered their mutual love for old Irish songs, many of which they had both learned as children. They soon added Annie O'Flynn on keyboards to round out the trio. Skilly & Duff were the first place winners in the Irish music competition at the 2009 Irish Fair of Minnesota in St. Paul, and have been featured performers at fairs, festivals and pubs across

the region. Always entertaining, much of the Skilly & Duff material has been gleaned from the repertoire of actual Irish country pubs, and people who travel extensively in Ireland often comment that these shows are truly “like a trip to Ireland�.

So God made a farmer... Here's the text of Paul Harvey's 1978 'So God Made a Farmer' Speech, which inspired the Ram Trucks’ Super Bowl ad that has resonated with so many Americans: “And on the 8th day, God looked down on his planned paradise and said, "I need a caretaker." So God made a farmer. God said, "I need somebody willing to get up before dawn, milk cows, work all day in the fields, milk cows again, eat supper and then go to town and stay past midnight at a meeting of the school board." So God made a farmer. "I need somebody with arms strong enough to rustle a calf and yet gentle enough to deliver his own grandchild. Somebody to call hogs, tame cantankerous machinery, come home hungry, have to wait lunch until his wife's done feeding visiting ladies and tell the ladies to be sure and come back real soon -- and mean it." So God made a farmer. God said, "I need somebody willing to sit up all night with a newborn colt. And watch it die. Then dry his eyes and say, 'Maybe next year.' I need somebody who can shape an ax handle from a persimmon sprout, shoe a horse with a hunk of car tire, who can make harness out of haywire, feed sacks and shoe scraps. And

who, planting time and harvest season, will finish his forty-hour week by Tuesday noon, then, pain'n from 'tractor back,' put in another seventy-two hours." So God made a farmer. God had to have somebody willing to ride the ruts at double speed to get the hay in ahead of the rain clouds and yet stop in mid-field and race to help when he sees the first smoke from a neighbor's place. So God made a farmer. God said, "I need somebody strong enough to clear trees and heave bales, yet gentle enough to tame lambs and wean pigs and tend the pink-combed pullets, who will stop his mower for an hour to splint the broken leg of a meadow lark. It had to be somebody who'd plow deep and straight and not cut corners. Somebody to seed, weed, feed, breed and rake and disc and plow and plant and tie the fleece and strain the milk and replenish the self-feeder and finish a hard week's work with a five-mile drive to church. "Somebody who'd bale a family together with the soft strong bonds of sharing, who would laugh and then sigh, and then reply, with smiling eyes, when his son says he wants to spend his life 'doing what dad does.'" So God made a farmer.”

4-H Animal Science: More than just showing a steer! When we think of animal science projects, we tend to think of the steers, hogs, and sheep displayed at the county fair. But in reality, participating in a 4-H animal science project is much more than just a show at the fair. Animal science projects start as early as October with animal selection, chores and more. In addition, there are many opportunities of learning for animal science members throughout the year. In Stevens County, we currently have Project Bowl teams in the general livestock and horse project areas. Participants begin learning about the project areas, touring local agricultural operations and practicing for the competition in December. Practice lessons are prepared and shared by 4-H volunteers. Volunteers also serve as the team coaches. In 2013, 18 youth participated in the General Livestock Competitions (4 teams) and 12 in the Horse Competitions (3 teams). The knowledge that the youth gain from this program is carried over into the knowledge they have for raising, exhibiting and marketing their livestock projects. In the summer months, youth are encouraged to participate in the judging teams for the horse and general livestock project areas as well. Through this experience, youth learn quality traits of livestock and how to better select animals for their herd to increase profitability. These are just a few of the many opportunities that are available to youth in the animal science project areas. Other opportunities include Livestock Quality Assurance and Ethics training, fitting and showing clinics, livestock interviews, and project talks at club meetings. 4-Hers spend much of the spring and summer working with and preparing their livestock projects for the County Fair. Once

at the fair, 4-Hers can be spotted cleaning pens, caring for their animals, preparing for the show and of course participating in the shows. Behind the scenes, all 4-Hers are required to participate in a livestock interview. Through the interview, they are able to share what they have learned about their project areas. As we all know, the 4-Hers put a lot of work into their livestock exhibits at the fair. But their project learning extends far beyond that animal you see!

Island Band on Thursday Island Time Steel Drum Band has been performing since the mid ‘90s. Their vast repertoire includes trop-rock selections by Jimmy Buffett, Harry Belefonte, etc., along with beach music and oldies by The Beach Boys, Frankie Valli, Manfred Mann, etc., and contemporary tunes by Zac Brown, Sting, Kenny Chesney, and others. These professional musicians know how to read the crowd and will keep any age audience entertained. Come and enjoy the Island Time Steel Drum Band on Thursday, Aug. 8 from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Bandshell at the Stevens County Fair.

I am Katelyn Blackwelder, the Stevens County 4-H Summer Intern, as well as a finalist for the 2013 Princess Kay of the Milky Way title. I grew up on my family’s dairy farm in rural Chokio, where we milk 300 cows and grow corn, wheat, alfalfa and soybeans on 1,750 acres. I have served as the Dairy Princess in Big Stone County for three years. I credit showing dairy cattle in Stevens County 4-H to developing my interest in cows and the dairy industry. This interest, as well as the pride I take in the hard work my family does, has led me to be one of 12 candidates for Princess Kay, which has been a goal of mine since I was in 4th grade. Princess Kay of the Milky Way is celebrating its 60th year in 2013. This title was selected in 1954 from over 10,000 entries in a contest held to name the Minnesota Dairy Princess. Besides getting her likeness carved into a 90 pound block of butter, Princess Kay serves as the ambassador for the dairy industry during her year long term. Princess Kay makes public appearances around the state to help consumers

make a connection with Minnesota’s dairy farmers, including high school and elementary classrooms. The butterheads of each of the 12 finalists have been carved since 1965, and have been carved by Linda Christensen for 41 years. The carving takes about six hours for each butterhead, which is done in a rotating cooler in the Dairy Building on the state fair grounds. It is displayed for the duration of the fair and goes home with the Princess and finalists after the fair. When visiting the Minnesota State Fair this year, I hope you check out the Dairy Building, see my butterhead among the 12, and enjoy a healthy snack from the Dairy Goodness Bar. Also, feel free to contact me if you would like me to present in your classroom, or at another local event.
