Mark your calendars now to come see us,
Farming in 20/20 Vision ~ August 21, 22 and 23, 2020!
Wow! The Superintendents and Fair Board have been busy, so many updates about the fair already coming available. With all the great information available, please check out the Exhibitor's Corner page which covers as much as possible regarding exhibiting with us at the fair.
Covid Lockdown Resources
For many of our area families, having the kids at home this time of year is not the normal. While many families are taking this time to get caught up on projects and spend time together, we can all use a few resources to help keep kids entertained. I did see a great video on Facebook about teaching fractions using a wine glass and a bottle of wine. But we can't all be creative all the time. With that here are some resources to help your sanity because very soon "Mom, I am bored" is gonna infect your house.
A Google search for free coloring pages will get you some great and some really sucky coloring pages you can print at home. Here are some links to some fair related coloring pages (I tried to find some for all our exhibitors):

FFA & 4H Members
I got this from Ms Whitmore, the FFA Advisor at Deer Park High School. These are some great resources for kids to start honing their skills for the upcoming show season.
During this time many FFA and 4-H members are finishing their school year online at home. Raised in a Barn has put together a list of resources full of fun and educational videos, music, and worksheets to help you continue learning.
Livestock, Horse, Dairy, Poultry and Meats Judging
Livestockjudging.com offers free content to continue practicing judging.

Community Service - if looking for a great way to give back, check out how to sew face masks for our medical professionals.
You can also read books going live on social media for kids!
What You Can Do - Show off your SAE on social media.
Go Facebook Live to talk about FFA or 4-H.
Log hours in AET.
I know these are tough times. I think the second paragraph in the FFA Creed says it best, “I believe that to live and work on a good farm, or to be engaged in other agricultural pursuits, is pleasant as well as challenging; for I know the joys and discomforts of agricultural life and hold an inborn fondness for those associations which, even in hours of discouragement, I cannot deny.”
We can and we will get through this! Stay home! Wash your hands! And we will see you at the fair.
Quilt Block Challenge - Quilts of Valor
This year we will be partnering with Quilts of Valor to create a quilt for a service member or veteran who has been touched by war. All blocks submitted will be used to create a quilt and then it will be given to honor a military member. For more information, check out our Exhibitors Corner page.
Clayton ProWest Rodeo Sponsorships Available
Our largest fundraising event for the Clayton Community Fair is of course the Clayton ProWest Rodeo. Letters went out in January for 2020 sponsors and there is room available for more sponsors! Be a part of this great event and advertise your group or business by becoming a sponsor. Please call 509 951 7379 for more details.
Fair Parking Attendants - Donation
if you were at the fair Friday and Saturday last year you know what a zoo the parking lot was. We usually have a group help park cars for the rodeo in which we give them a donation and would like to do the same for fair. We need a group or two - (one to do each day) to park cars Friday August 21st and Saturday August 22nd mornings from 7 till 10:30-11. We would want to meet with you the week of fair to go over final details.
If you would like more details you can message this page or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Can you believe only 1 more months until you can enjoy the Clayton Farmers Market? Our vendors and customers are the best in the area, we will see you next year for more punch card filling fun! If you would like to be a vendor, send us an email.
We need your help!
The fair is 100% volunteer ran and we need some help with administrative tasks and/or help during the week of the fair watching over the entries. If you have a few hours or a day to help please contact us!
