Oh, how our little town grew! Thousands attended the Sarpy County Fair last week. Raise your hand if you whooped it up at a rodeo, screamed on carnival rides, scrambled after an animal, dined on funnel cakes, popcorn, or cotton candy, fed a goat, or applauded at 4-H shows.  We must have seen you there!  Thanks to one and all involved in making last week’s Fair a successful event.   Congratulations to all prize winners in 4-H, Open Class, and all Fair events.  We also want to thank whoever ordered that glorious weather. It was absolutely, positively the best Fair weather in everyone’s memory.

 

 
 CONGRATULATIONS!

MARVIN OSTRANSKY

Marvin & Cathy Ostransky
This year Marvin Ostransky is being honored as the fair person of the year because of his life long commitment to the Sarpy County Fair. Marvin's involvement began as a child in the garden tractor pull and in 4-H for 10 years showing poultry and entering gardening and food items.  Marvin spent many years help[ng his dad, Fred Ostransky, while he was on the fairboard by weighing tractors and cleaning the fairgrounds.  As an adult Marvin has continued to exhibit in open class with his best exhibits in field crops and antiques.  Marvin's fair spirit has caught on with the rest of his family as Cathy, Liz, and Cassandra also exhibit in open class and volunteer around the fair.  In recent years you can find Marvin helpng out wherever possible.  He assists with swine weigh in and volunteeered during the swine show.  He helps the fairboard by selling rodeo tickets, weighing in tractors and trucks, and helping with the animal scramble.  Everyone at the fair knows if they need a helpng hand Marvin is there to help make our fair a successful one. 
 
CONGRATULATIONS!
