Fall meetings of the Senior Fair Board often focus on advance planning for the following year’s county fair. Thursday’s October meeting was no exception.
Members made plans for the upcoming state convention, as well as pondering possible changes and upgrades for the 2014 Wood County Fair.
Among the items addressed was the possibility of installing 28 center handrails in the grandstand. One bid estimate was submitted in the amount of $12,760. Board members decided to get additional estimates and evaluate whether the need justifies the expense.
Board secretary and fair manager Dick King said it was his understanding that regulations do not require they have those handrails as those grandstands are “grandfathered in” and thus not required.
Though King and other board members know the value of having handrails to assist fairgoers to climb up the into the grandstands, they also noted the narrow aisles which would be further narrowed with the handrails being installed.

After a very busy and successful summer for the Bowling Green FFA chapter, when school started the pace picked up.
Before school even started, members parked cars for the National Tractor Pull, where they raised more than $1,350 for Toledo Children's Hospital.
Another Toledo Children's Hospital fundraiser the FFA hosted was held several weeks later with the annual tailgate before the Bobcats' home football game against Springfield. At that fundraiser, a dunk tank featured teachers, administrators and FFA students. The two teachers that participated were Callie Maas and Kristen Carpenter. The two administrators were the vice principal, Dr. Bob Yenrick and the principal, Jeff Dever. The four FFA members being dunked in the fundraiser were the chapter's reporter, Amanda Barndt, the secretary, Madalyn Fletcher, the treasurer, Alex Wynn and a member, Max Holstein.
