ST. HELENS — The theme for the 2014 Columbia County Fair and Rodeo is “Country Roots and Cowboy Boots”. Darci Solimine of St. Helens submitted the winning idea for the theme.
The Friends of Columbia County Fair are selling event posters for $5 each (see image). Proceeds from the sales will benefit the fairgrounds. Posters from previous years are also available.
Clean-up volunteers are needed during fair week. Applicants must be 12 and older and available for morning or afternoon shifts. Those who work one shift will earn a meal ticket. Those who work two shifts will earn a meal ticket, plus a one-day pass for carnival rides. Details: Message Amanda McFeron via Facebook.
Superintendents for the art and floral open classes also are being recruited. People who have knowledge of different types of art, or in multiple types of horticulture, are encouraged to apply. Applicants must be available July 12-20. Superintendents will be paid for their time, and given free passes to the fair. Details: e-mail Megan Bluhm at email@example.com.
