Darke County Jr. Fairboard started this petition to Darke County Agricultural Society Fair Board

After hearing the outcome of the last Darke County Sr. Fairboard meeting, we were informed that Beth Martin did not get her contract renewed as being the Darke County Jr. Fairboard Coordinator. As the Jr. Fair, we believe this is unfair and unjust. From our perspective, Beth Martin did not do anything to receive this at the after-fair meeting. We do not understand to this day why certain members decided to not renew her contract. The amount of time and dedication that Beth has put into the fair and Jr. Fair should not and never has gone unnoticed. What she does for the Jr. Fairboard members and exhibitors is unwavering. Back in March when Covid-19 hit, Jr. Fair exhibitors were scared that fair was going to be taken away and they would not get to show their projects. We were promised and told by many members that, “We are going to do what is best for the kids and exhibitors.” Not renewing Beth’s contract is the opposite of what is best for the kids and exhibitors. Beth has done so much for the youth of Darke County. The endless time and effort she spends going to all the Jr. Fair event whether that be committee meetings, Jr. Fairboard meetings, King and Queen Pageant, Sr. Fairboard meetings, and so many more. Beth has always been the kind of person that always puts the kids and exhibitors first, whether that be helping them assign classes, helping with ringbooks, getting all the trophies and ribbons ordered and organized for shows, helping set up the youth building for all the Jr. Fair & 4-H booths. Additionally, she makes sure people in the community know when shows are and when events are happening at the fair. These are the things we see, and we know she does more than what most of us know. As the President and Vice President of the Jr. Fairboard we are extremely upset with the Sr. Fairboard that they do not see all the time and effort she puts in for us kids. 

We ask the Darke County Senior Fairboard to rethink their September votes. We ask them to hear us out. We ask that the Darke County Senior Fairboard reinstates Beth Martin as Jr. Fair Coordinator. 

If you agree and feel the same way we do, please sign this petition as we make our voices heard!

Thank you,

President: Jacob Wuebker   Vice President: Deanna Hesson
