KALTENBACH SHOWS 11TH YEAR
On today’s broadcast we visit with Tim Kaltenbach. Tim has been showing at the fair for 11 years and has made many fond memories. Tim reflects on one of his very favorite memories on today’s feature. He also talks about how the Tioga County Fair showcases Tioga County Agriculture and has some very interesting and informative insight on our agriculture community.
We also have the opportunity to meet the steer that Tim will be showing this year and learn a little about the differences in steer and which ones produce the very best meat.
FAMILY FUN FAIR FUN for all!
Pony rides, amusement park rides, barn animals, craft activities, football races, relay races and even a tea party are all happening today at the Tioga County Fair for family day. Jennie York, secretary of the fair, says that ‘family day is just a great day to let the kids enjoy the fair and learn about agriculture.” Children under 11 will be able to attend the fair for free until 5:00PM.
There will also be animal shows the rest of the week along with a full barn of horses that you have the opportunity to go and visit.

FAIR TEA PARTY YIELDS ROYAL SUCCESS
Wednesday, August 12, the fair was graced by the presence of many little nobles as girls from around the county joined the Fair Queens and Dairy Princesses for a tea party. Over 50 young ladies (ages 9 & under) each received a crown, wand, and goodie bag as they socialized with the Fair Queens and Dairy Princesses and took part in many fun activities. The event is not only a special treat for the girls, but also potential recruiting grounds for future Fair Queens and Dairy Princesses.
WELCOME TO CREATURE CARE!
Ask anyone who has ever loved an animal to reminisce about a moment that stands out most for them and you may quickly get a name like “Beauty”, “ Charcoal,” “Tiger,” or “Max” – and with that name a smile. A sparkle, or perhaps a tear may appear in their eyes as a story unfolds. Stories of joy, tenderness, and emotion – stories that span years or that perhaps involve a human animal encounter that was oh, so painfully short. These stories of service, and of friendship, stories of pain and of pain relief are the stories of the our human lives woven with those of the creatures in our care. These are the stories that we are going to share with you on Wellsboro Home Page’s ‘Creature Care’ segment.
