LqP County is a wonderful place to live
because of the great people!
Annually there are three different awards given out at the LqP County Fair:
- Century Farm Recognition
- Outstanding Female Senior Citizen
- Outstanding Male Senior Citizen
Family tradition is very important to family farmers. If your family has been on your acreage for at least 100 years and you meet the other criteria, the LqP County Farm Bureau wants you to know you could be recognized as a local Century Farm. For more details, contact David Bergeson with the LqP County Farm Bureau.
One way we can show our appreciation for the efforts of our many citizens, especially those Senior Citizens who volunteer for many different events and occasions, is to recognize their outstanding efforts with this annual award. Each year during the LqP County Fair the award is presented to one male and one female in Lac qui Parle County.
For details on the Deadline for application submissions for the LqP County Outstanding Senior Citizen Award contact Julie Olson on the LqP County Fairboard.
Presentations for the Outstanding Senior Citizens and the Century Farm awards will be made on Thursday, September 10th at 3 p.m. in the LqP County Fair Event Center.
