Bonnie Gerner reported on the Boone County Fair and the Roscoe Fall Festival. Bonnie stated the Boone County Fair is a beautiful fair, but hard to get help to come down to it. It takes commitment to work it. As for, Roscoe, Bonnie stated it is a hard place to find, but is family friendly. The crowd likes the ice cream and cream puffs. There was some confusion on whether the food license had been paid. Pam Burke will check into it and make sure the Ag Chest did not double pay.
