The Lincoln County Fair recently collaborated with the Lincoln County High School Visual Arts Department on an aesthetics upgrade to the bathrooms behind the exhibition building, and the collaboration was a huge success.

It features large vibrant sunflowers, a tractor and baler with pumpkins which all go in tune with the fair’s rich agricultural history.

“This was the 113th fair, and it continues be a huge part of the county’s agricultural heritage,” said Randy Cowley, president of the LC Fair. “For many families, the Lincoln County Fair is a mainstay of their family heritage, and they look forward to it as a way to promote their agricultural and non-agricultural businesses, renew old friendships from days gone by, and forge new relationships to open new avenues for future business and friendships.”

“Mrs. Jennie Roles-Walter and her talented group of art students never fail to deliver,” said Kaye Cowley. “It doesn’t matter what I have asked her to do. It’s always done with an artistic flair. I am not sure how she manages to juggle all of her community projects, but her dedication to our community is much appreciated by all of us at the Lincoln County Fair! I cannot imagine doing without her and her students!”
