State Aid For Fairs

From the funds appropriated by the General Assembly of the State of Tennessee for the purpose of aiding agricultural fairs in the payment of agricultural premiums, the Fentress County Fair Association has been allotted its proportionate share by the Tennessee Department of Agriculture.

For the purpose of further encouraging fairs to excel in their usefulness to their respective areas, a Merit Awards provision was also made in the appropriation.  It is hoped that the Fentress County Fair can have an exhibition sufficiently creditable to warrant its receiving one of the special Merit Awards in addition to its allotment of State Aid.
