The Board of Directors is pleased to extend you an invitation to exhibit
in the 50th McDonald County Fair. It is our intent to make the fair
something interesting and exciting for you and your family. We
fully realize this would not be possible without the participation
and cooperation of the exhibitors.
We wish to express our appreciation to the many advertisers and
contributors for their tremendous response as displayed throughout
this catalog. We hope you, as an exhibitor, will visit them and
extend your appreciation for their interest in supporting the
McDonald County Fair.
The Board of Directors is pleased to announce that the McDonald
County Fair has a website. The information found within the pages
of this catalog can now be found online at:
We are looking forward to greeting you as both an exhibitor
and a visitor to the 50th McDonald County Fair.
