Families of 4-H forgotten when board set prices

August 16, 2014
Alpena News

I had to laugh out loud when I read the front page article of Tuesday's paper. The Alpena County Fair Board are trying to justify the new price structure yet failed to mention all of the other changes. I understand the need to charge the General Public but charging the 4H kids to get into the grandstands is unforgivable. They also failed to mention that they are now charging the parents of the 4H child gate fees. These children spend all week working hard, they spent several days painting fairground fences. When I questioned a Board Member he told me they (the board) had given the kids two passes. Total lie - WATZ gave the kids concert tickets and the 4H society paid for the second pass to Grandstand.
