It is hard to believe that the fair has come and gone. I have to say it was one of the best yet for me. Met lots of great people and saw so many great things that make me proud to live here in Western New York.  People work so hard and spend so much time preparing for this event and I hope Iwas able to convey some of that in these blogs. Today's was extra emotional for me as I walked through the 9-11 World Trade Center exhibit.Big thanks to the fair board and staff for their continued hard work and dedication to the fair year after year. I would especially like to say thanks to the 4-H and the kids involved on all of the projects at the fair. Thanks for reminding us that hard work, dedication and caring for others really is what the spirit of The Fair is all about!
