Fair royalty presents fair book to commissioners

The Weld County Fair has been a time-honored tradition for 101 years; highlighting the best of Weld County’s agricultural roots. As such, this year’s fair royalty court presented the Weld County Board of Commissioners with the 2019 fair book at Wednesday’s meeting.

“Thank you for representing Weld County and our youth,” Commissioner Chair Barbara Kirkmeyer said. “We’re happy to have you here; it’s great to see the leadership you present throughout the year.”

Camy Seelhoff, Fair Queen, along with Shelby Tveten, Fair Attendant, and Mayzie Helzer, Fair Princess, updated the commissioners on their duties and appearances on behalf of the county fair. Information about the numerous showmanship events, 4-H Club, Future Farmers of America (FFA), and open class exhibitions the public can look forward to attending at this year’s fair, were also included.

In their role as royalty, the three girls promote the fair, attend community and 4-H events, as well as help with all the shows during the fair.

Seelhoff, of Gilcrest, currently serves as the President of the District II Weld County 4-H Club and participates in Valley High School’s FFA organization. She has been a member of the Wranglers 4-H Club for the past 13 years and is serving as President this year.

Tveten, of Johnstown, is active on Roosevelt High School FFA’s Horse Judging Team and has been involved in the Calico ‘n Jeans 4-H Club since she was eight years old. This year, she is showing a pig, as well as exhibiting projects in restoration and visual arts drawing at the Weld County Fair.

Helzer, of Kersey, is a member of the Centennial Clovers 4-H Club and is exhibiting artistic clothing along with cake decorating at this year’s fair.
