At the August 9th, monthly meeting of the Faribault County Fair Board, the resignation letter was read and accepted of Brandi Jacobsen of Winnebago, MN. Mrs. Jacobsen included in her letter that she was leaving for personal reasons, including but not limited to spending more time with her family and not being able to put enough time into both family and fair.
Brandi was in charge of overseeing and maintaining the Open Class along with the assistance of Sara Gack, Fair President. She handled arranging superintendents, judges, volunteers, as well as other details regarding Open Class and the buildings pertaining to the Open Class Departments. Along with the Open Class, Brandi oversaw the scheduling and arranging of the various free activities and contests on the grounds with assistance from the other board members. Brandi also assisted Director of Digital Media, Zach Rinehart, in keeping up with inquiries on social media accounts as well. Brandi Jacobsen accomplished all of these things while also being able to help around the grounds in various capacities during the fair week.
The Faribault County Fair Board is sad to see such a dedicated and hard working board member go, but the board also understands Brandi Jacobsen's position and wishes her well in her future endeavors.

The Faribault County Fair Board bids farewell to two members from the board of directors. Dave Adams, of Blue Earth, stepped down from the board for personal reasons, and Lorraine Hougland, of Kiester, has retired from the board of directors after 11 years serving the Faribault County Fair. We wish them well.
The Faribault County Fair Board would like to warmly welcome two new members to the board of directors. Milo Goltz and Justin Dahl, both of Elmore, were voted onto the board of directors at the November annual meeting which was held at the Ag Center in Blue Earth. We look forward to the talents and insights that both of these members will bring to the board and to the fair!
