Volunteers serve meal to carnival workers at Wilson Co. Fair

To the Editor:

As we all know, the Wilson County Fair is the greatest fair ever. Without the many dedicated volunteers, who give both their time and their talents, the Wilson County Fair would not be what it is today. 

I would like to tell you about one particular group of fair volunteers who show what the true essence of this year's fair theme, "30 Years of Volunteers," is all about.

I am sure that life on the road as carnival worker is not very easy. But, on Thursday, Aug. 20, members of the Independent Midway Committee made sure that for one, simple meal, life was made a little easy for these workers. Members of the Midway Independent Fair Committee, better known as "The Buzzards," made sure that these workers were served a great home-cooked meal to let them know how much that they were appreciated.

A majority of the carnival workers had been working tirelessly that day to prepare the carnival rides for our enjoyment at the fair, and to help our make our fair successful as well. However, as tired and as dirty as they were from working, these carnival workers were very appreciative of the meal that was served to them. Not only did "The Buzzards" serve this delicious meal, but they provided both their time and their own financial resources as well.

I am not a member of the Independent Midway Committee, nor am I a member of the Wilson County Fair Board. However, I was very honored and very humbled to be serving along side with "The Buzzards." This group of individuals is one of many groups that represent the true meaning of "30 Years of Volunteers" at the Wilson County Fair.  As a resident of Wilson County, I, along with many other residents, respect you and thank you to the many volunteers of the Wilson County Fair.
