Tioga County Fair celebrates 50 Years

County fair receives citations and new county fair queen is crowned

 

by Chloe Quimby, Sara Vogt - April 26, 2016

The Tioga County Fair celebrates 50 years of supporting the agricultural community. A number of community leaders joined together this past Sunday, April 24th to help kick off this historic year. 

To offer congratulations for fifty years of the Tioga County Fair, Matt Baker, Representative of the PA House; Senator Scarnati’s representative, Deb Rudy; and Eric Coolidge, representative for the County Commissioner, came and presented citations from the different government agencies to the President of the Tioga County Fair, David “Doc” Reece, DVM.
Fair board members also attended, including Ellene Siegfried, Lori Hamblin, Jennie York, Marty Baker, Tim Kaltenbach, and Kevin Houghtaling.

Almost everyone who works for the fair does so as a volunteer. One such volunteer, Annie Clark, has been a part of the Tioga County Fair for 44 years and is affectionately known as the ambassador of the Tioga County Fair. Annie has known the 2016 State Fair Queen, Darby Kasper, for many years through church in their close-knit community of Roseville, as well as their work at the fair. Annie remarks on the blessings of living in a small community, “When we live in the same community, it makes a lot of difference. It’s not only [Tioga County] Fair, but it’s church, it’s 4-H…it’s whatever we do. And if we need something, we know who to call.”

Darby Kasper is the first Tioga county representative to become the Pennsylvania State Fair Queen for in Tioga County Fair history. When crowned as State Fair Queen, Darby automatically released her county fair queen title. This Sunday, she crowned Morgan Kozier the 2015 Tioga County Fair Queen. In recognition of her achievement, Morgan will receive $250.00 gift from the fair.

Darby will reign as the Pennsylvania State Queen until January 2017. As the Tioga Fair Queen, Darby was awarded a $500 scholarship from WOC and $500 from the Tioga County Fair Board. Dunham’s Department Store was also a gown sponsor. Darby also received a $2,500 scholarship as an award for being crowned PA State Fair Queen.

If you know a young lady who would like to enter the Tioga County Fair Queen competition, you can contact Jenn Thomas at 570-662-9000 for more information. The next coronation will be held July 31st at the Main Fair Grounds in Whitneyville, PA.

This year’s fair will be held August 8th-13th. Check out the fair website at www.tiogacountyfair.com for more information.
