Touching moments shared as Jefferson County Fair opens - 08-13


SMITHFIELD — Some touching moments occurred Monday at the Rozsa Gazebo during opening ceremonies for the 148th-annual Jefferson County Fair. Ray Hilderbrand, fair board president, remembered Gary Cain, the dedicated auctioneer at the junior fair for more than 60 years. He told how Cain, who died Feb. 4 at the age of 81, would arrive two hours early to set up his equipment and ready himself for the time that 4-H members would long remember, going into the auction ring.
