Mr. Elvin Bates is a 98 year old farmer, bee keeper, sawmill owner, on Old Deane Road. He was asked to serve as County Fair Parade Marshall, representing the “family farmers” of Drew County, Monday, 70 years after he fought for our country on D-Day. He is likely the oldest veteran in Drew Co., although this has not been confirmed.
There will be no rides at the Drew County fair carnival, Thursday night, acording to the Arkansas department of labor.
Although the Department of Labor did not have an inspector show up at the fairgrounds today, meaning no inspection of machinery or paperwork was possible on site, they still cancelled tonights carnival rides.

The new Livestock Barn has been completed, and will be in use for this year’s fair.
“Country Nights, Carnival Lights” is the theme of the 2013 Drew County Fair & Livestock Show.
This year’s fair dates are Sept. 16-21. with the Fair Pageants and talent show scheduled for Sept. 9-14
A Junior Fair Board has been formed and will be assisting with this year’s fair.
Remember to start planning your exhibits, now. The County Extension Office can provide information to help you.
Also, make plans to include your business, club, or organization in the Commercial Booth area. Call Brenda Reed at 723-6740 to reserve your booth.
The purpose of the Jr. Fair Board is to increase the support of our youth, and educate them in the operations in community programs, such as the County Fair.
Members of the Drew County Fair Board and the Cooperative Extension Service would like to encourage residents to begin planning for the annual fair, which will be held the third week of September.
“Every year, we have residents tell us that they wish they had thought about entering a craft project, photo or preserved food item in the fair, but didn’t get started in time to do so,” said Drew County Family and Consumer Sciences Agent, Hazelene McCray. “We just wanted to give everyone a friendly reminder that the fair would be coming up, and to ask them to start thinking about things they would like to enter, whether it be arts and crafts, animals, vegetables – whatever. The fair is more fun when there are lots of entries in all the different categories and more people can earn “bragging rights’ about their submissions and have their friends and family come out to view their award-winning works.”
The Drew County Fairground’s Auditorium is available for rent for Family Reunions, ‘Weddings and/or Wedding Receptions,
Special rates are available for Birthday Party for young or old alike!
Rain or Shine — Hot or Cold — Call for Info
