Hall of Fame nominations due
Organizers of the newly created Wood County Agricultural Hall of Fame are seeking nominations for the inaugural class.
It is hoped the first recipients will be announced on July 30 during the annual Junior Fair Parade which kicks off the annual Wood County Fair.
Anyone can nominate a person or persons, dead or live, who deserves to be enshrined in the new Hall of Fame.
Organizers will require a one-page essay of why this nominee would deserve to be inducted along with a one-page resume of their accomplishments in furthering agriculture in Wood County.
These would be sent to Ag Credit to be reviewed and the recipient each year would be picked by a panel of five individuals from the Agricultural community. This panel would be comprised of a representative from the following:
• 1 Ag Credit representative
• 1 Wood County Commissioner
• 2 Wood County Fair Board members and
• 1 from another area such as OSU extension, FSA, or SWCD, to be determined later
Deadline for nominees is July 25.
'Quilt Day' at fair is Aug. 1
Quilt Day at the Wood County Fair is scheduled for Aug. 1 in the Annex building on the fairgrounds.

Local quilting groups exhibit their items and also provide continuous demonstrations of works in progress.
