WAHOO – Plans continue for the Saunders County Fair, despite a sense of uncertainty that remains regarding the event.

The Saunders County Agricultural Society met on June 10 to discuss the upcoming fair, scheduled for July 26 to Aug. 2. The next day, the board announced that they are still planning most events for the fair.

The Open Class competition and vendors in the commercial building have been eliminated to make space for the 4-H participants and their static exhibits, the announcement said, but all other activities are still in the works.

Ag Society Secretary Jackie Hladik said the board is waiting for upcoming changes in the state Directed Health Measures (DHM) that are to be announced soon.

Work also continues on construction of the rabbit/poultry barn. Hladik said the concrete slab has been poured.

The fair board congratulated organizers of the Saunders County Beef Progress Show, which took place at the fairgrounds on June 6.

The next meeting of the fair board is scheduled for July 1.
