It is once again back to business after the 2002 California Mid-Winter Fair & Fiesta. Over two weeks has passed and the feeling of success still lingers.
There is not enough time or room to thank everyone for the success of this year's fair. Please believe me in that there are many to thank, including the volunteers, part and full-time staff, board of directors, law enforcement, sponsors, 4-H, FFA and independent exhibitors, auction buyers, Butler Amusements (carnival operator) and the countless other organizations and people who help with and participate in the fair. I am very proud of everyone involved.
Our success was in presenting a fair that was clean, safe, exciting and most of all — fun for the residents of the Imperial Valley. We promise to continue the trend of providing the quality that the Valley has a right to expect.
We will be back in 2003 to "Celebrate the Kid Within." … See you then!
