That time of year again
Today is the first day of the Lincoln County Fair. I've been a part of the fair in some form or another for 12 years now and I can't believe it's been that long! I've either been showing, judging or on court and it looks as though things will remain that way for some time. Alex and I took his sheep up this morning and weighed it in for the market show tomorrow - 100 pounds even! This year is quite interesting having David around. He was a big hit this morning with everyone in the sheep barn... he's definitely the favorite, lol. Tomorrow, Alex will be showing his lamb and I will be doing my Pampered Chef booth. Thursday Alex will sell his lamb and the fair will be half way over - it goes so fast! Friday I will be judging the Lead Line... Kids dress up in wool and walk around with their sheep to show the versatility of wool. I used to do this when I was younger and it really sucks when it's 100 degrees. Fortunately, this year won't be quite that hot - yes! Saturday is the worst day in my opinion. At 9 in the morning, the breeding sheep show starts and will last until about 5 in the evening - yuck. I may have to show Alex's sheep since he also has a baseball tournament all week long. It's a stressful and hectic week we have ahead of us... why do we all think it's so fun?
Throughout my late adolescense and adulthood, I have had many positions (professionally and volunteer basis) that have helped me develop skills necessary to serve as a liaison to the community on behalf of a professional organization. I have spent many years in various organizations which have helped me grow skills such as public speaking, note taking, and scheduling. I am proficient in organization and mediation – always keeping the mindset of finding middle ground and while meeting the needs of those involved. I excel in the area of community outreach and thrive in situations where I am given reign to be creative and managerial. I am committed to achieving the best outcome and feel I have many fantastic qualities to contribute to any organization.
