Thanks to organizers, and youth participants

Another summer is over, and another great Evergreen State Fair is complete. Our thanks go to the organizers and all involved. The animals, the displays, the food, the rides, and the people, all magnificent. But especially gratifying to see were the youth who exhibited the many and varied animals and displays at the fair — you were terrific.

Our nation is poised to emerge from under a cloud in a few weeks and it will truly be morning in America again. You young folks, children, teens, young adults, members of 4H and FFA, represent our future by being a part of the lifeblood of our wonderful country. Thank you all for what you are doing and what you will do.
