The Stover Fair Board moved up its June meeting to Tuesday, June 6 at Stover Legion Memorial Park, due to the short timeframe between its regular meeting date, Tuesday, June 13, and the first day of the 2017 Stover Fair Thursday June 15.
Fair board president Marty Weber said this was “to allow more time to address any issues that might need to be dealt with” before the fair.
To make final preparations for the fair, work days were scheduled Monday, June 12 and Wednesday, June 14 at the park.
It was reported the upgraded midway areas in the park should be ready on time for the fair, thanks to the efforts of city maintenance supervisor Nick Dothage and his crew.
Due to scarcity of contestants for the Stover Fair Queen contest, the fair board decided to extend eligibility for queen candidates to all of Morgan County.
As of press time, there were enough candidates to have the contest, but more would be welcome. For more information call Shana Griblin at 573-789-6528 or Julie Marriott at 573-789-7252.
After reviewing its to-do list, the fair board agreed all remaining items can be resolved by opening day of the fair.
Co-Mo Connect expressed willingness to bring free Wi-Fi to the fairgrounds for the duration of the fair. Details were still being worked out at press time. The proposal depends on whether Co-Mo can implement the project within the guidelines of the Stover Park Board.
The next Stover Fair Board meeting is scheduled 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 11 at the west shelter in the park.
