VAN WERT — Positions for Van Wert County Fair Board Director from the City of Van Wert, Villages of Van Wert County (to include Delphos), Willshire Township, Ridge Township and Harrison Township, are to be elected at the 2013 fair by members of the Van Wert County Agricultural Society.
Persons desiring to run for a Fair Board Director position who reside in those areas may obtain a petition at the Van Wert County Fair Office by speaking with Troy Oechsle, Fair Manager.
Fair Board Directors are elected by voting held on the last day of the Van Wert County Fair, Sept. 2, at the Fairgrounds office. Votes may be cast by fairgoers who purchase a Membership ticket to the fair and reside in Van Wert County. The Membership ticket is purchased in advance of the fair and the cost is $18. Membership tickets will not be sold after 5 p.m. Aug. 27. This ticket also provides admittance to the fair for all six days the fair is held. These “voting” Membership tickets are only available at the Fair office or directly from Fair Board Directors.
There are 24 retail stores and businesses in Van Wert selling “non-voting” or season tickets to the fair. These tickets are the same at $18 but do not carry voting privileges. Season tickets will not be sold after 5 p.m. Aug. 28.
