ARE YOU WORKING FOR THE FAIR?
Butts county will have one of the best fairs this fall of any
community in the state. That is assured. The men behind the
movement will push it to a successful conclusion.
The fair project is a movement big enough and important
enough to challenge the * interest and co-operation of every citizen
of the county. The fair is essentially a Butts county institution,
owned and operated by the people-farmers, merchants, profes
sional men and bankers—for the advancement of educational ideas
in better farming and livestock raising and allied interests. The
stock was purposely divided into small shares so that every man in
the county could have a voice in the management. The stock could
have been subscribed by only a few men, but the promoters want
ed the people throughout the county to own the stock and to feel
that it is their institutition—a fair of the people, bv the people, for
To make the fair the success it is planned the officers must
have the hearty co-operation of all classes, rich and poor, young
and old. The first thing, of course, is to sell the stock. When you
are approached on this matter let your response be liberal and
spontaneous. Don’t dilly-dally and equivocate. The fair promo
ters are busy men and are giving their time and efforts as a mat
ter of patriotism and loyalty.
The Butts county fair will be first of all an educational fair.
It will arouse the people to the greatness of their own resources
and possibilities; stimulate interest in “safe farming,” livestock
raising, in education in the schools, in the co-operative demonstra
tion work as carried on by the state and government and best of
all it will bring the citizens together for an interchange of ideas.
Butts county is making splendid strides forward but the
progress might be faster and broader in its scope. The fair is a
county-wide, co-operative, educational movement for a Greater
Butts county through greater prosperity for all the people.
What are you doing, what are you contributing to promote
the success of the 1916 fair?
