Washington County Strong

Floodwaters inundated the Arlington fair grounds in March, but thanks to the determination of the The Washington County Fair Board and hours and hours of hard work by more than 100 volunteers, the Washington County Fair was held as scheduled July 26-31.

Flooded Washington County Livestock buildings.

I enjoy everything about the fair, but the most memorable event for me this year was the livestock auction.  In addition to  raisng more than $68,000 for kids who participated in livestock competitions, bidders and contributors also  generously raised another $9,000 to help the grandson of longtime Arlington farm-family Terry and Betty Rasmussen who has leukemia.
