We wanted to thank everyone for a great 2018 Saunders County Fair!
We would not be able to provide such great opportunities for our Saunders county youth without all the help of the superintedents, volunteers and families, so thank you! We have a passion for watching our youth grow and learn and the fair is just one of the many ways that we are able to offer them that chance.
Thank you to the Saunders County Ag Society for working so very hard to provide us beautiful facilities and ample opportunities. Remember, you can follow them (and thank them) on their Facebook page: Saunders County Fair
