Success at the Ashland County Fair

Ashland County Fair wasn't the same this year, but advisors and participants were determined to do whatever they could to continue the traditions our members know and love. With constant hand washing, wearing mask indoors, and putting their best foot forward each and everyday!

Mapleton FFA Members were busy running from show to show during the Ashland County Fair this year. With a shortened schedule during the 2020 Fair week, some members had several events each day. We want to say a special thank you to our siblings, parents and advisors for supporting us during that time!

Congratulations to all members who showed!
