To recognize the importance of Ohio's county fairs and to urge continued state support for those fairs.


       WHEREAS, County fairs have played an integral part in the lives of Ohio citizens for well over one hundred years; and

       WHEREAS, In the past, county fairs served as an opportunity for rural residents to socialize as well as share information and ideas regarding agricultural activities; and

       WHEREAS, County fairs have evolved since their early days. Today's county fairs provide not only continued opportunities for the display and exchange of agricultural information and ideas, but also opportunities for children and youth to complete and submit for display and judging projects on numerous scientific, agricultural, and arts topics; and

       WHEREAS, The value of today's county fairs to Ohio's communities and its children and youth far outweighs the monetary investment in the operation of the fairs. It is therefore imperative that state support for county fairs continue as an investment in the state's future; now therefore be it

       RESOLVED, That we, the members of the Senate of the 129th General Assembly of the State of Ohio, recognize the importance of Ohio's county fairs and urge continued state support for those fairs; and be it further

       RESOLVED, That the Clerk of the Senate transmit duly authenticated copies of this resolution to the news media of Ohio.
