Angelina County Fair Canceled Due to Coronavirus Concerns
Sometimes doing the right thing brings disappointment, pain, and frustration. This is one of those times.
Organizers with the Angelina County Fair have made the decision to cancel this year's event due to the coronavirus pandemic, explaining that 'we must all be part of the solution, and not part of the problem'.
The release from the Angelina County Fair goes on to state:
"We are currently working on a platform to provide a fund by which we can distribute funds raised in the community to the Exhibitors in order to recoup some of the money spent on these livestock projects. We would encourage anyone that intended to buy items at our sale to send their funds to the Buyers Pool for that purpose. Your tax deductible donations can be mailed or pledged online at the Angelina County Fair website. Also, we are working towards having a during the summer months for the projects that are not time sensitive. Finally, we want the community to know that Brookshire Brothers, our presenting sponsor, has been steadfast in their commitment to our County Fair and this community. Because of Brookshire Brothers' $10,000 commitment, we will still be awarding 10 scholarships to senior Exhibitors."
We will have more details on a possible summer event at a later date, but, we would like to say a big thank you to Brookshire Brothers for once again being such a great community partner.
