RECOGNIZING THE 100TH ANNUAL FRANKLIN COUNTY FAIR
HON. STEVE STIVERS
in the house of representatives
Thursday, July 13, 2017
Mr. STIVERS. Mr. Speaker, I rise today on behalf of the people of
Ohio's 15th Congressional District to recognize the 100th Annual
Franklin County Fair. Since 1917, the Franklin County Agricultural
Society has given our Central Ohio community countless memories of
summertime fun had at the County Fair.
Central Ohio has a rich agricultural heritage, and that heritage is
on full display at the Franklin County Fair. Its craft marketplace
allows patrons to purchase the exquisite and well-made products of
local vendors, and its Junior Fair provides young student farmers with
the chance to showcase their hard work and skill in agriculture.
But most importantly, the County Fair provides friends and families
from Obetz to Hilliard time to reconnect with one another. They can
forget their hectic lives and enjoy traditions that have been
appreciated by generations for 100 years.
I am grateful to the Franklin County Agricultural Society and the
Franklin County Fair Board for ensuring the success of this year's
event, and I am proud to recognize all who have been a part of its
