Hunt County Fair Creative Exhibits Due Wednesday; County Seeing Growth On Small-Acreage Properties


Hunt County Agrilife Extension Agent Sarah Latham says creative arts exhibits are due to be submitted for the Hunt County Fair this Wednesday (April 12) from 3-7 p.m. in the Creative Arts Building of the Fairgrounds.  The Fair takes place from April 20-April 29 on FM 1570 in Greenville.   Sarah says the Fair is in need of volunteers, including judges.

Sarah says Agrilife is hosting a cottage industry workshop Friday, May 4.  She says the Agrilife Extension office has seen an 80 percent increase in calls in  the past year, because of people moving into Hunt County, living on small-acreage properties, and wanting to earn money on their land.

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
