Sarah loved her years in 4-H from raising animals to helping on the fair board to the time she gave helping special needs children at the elementary school. She was a hard-working Fair volunteer spending hours working on set-up and taking care of the needs in several events.
The Fair Board wishes to remember Archuleta County Fair supporters and volunteers who have passed away over the last year, but who had passionately served the Fair, the 4-H program, and our youth. We acknowledge their commitment to the Fair and to our community in general. This year, we are pleased to remember these faithful men and women, and we dedicate this year’s Fair to their memory.
Jack loved the western way of life and was involved in activities at the rodeo grounds and was a generous donor to many local rodeo events, youth equestrian events and the 4-H livestock program. He assisted with significant improvements at the rodeo grounds, including the construction of the WHEC/4-H building, the addition of new roping chutes, and improving the mutton bustin’ event by upgrading the standard equipment, including protective vests, and adding prizes for every cowpoke participant.
