members of the Collinville Tr-County Fair Board joined with many of the past
fair board members Thursday at a reception to honor them for their service over
the past 60 years. The photo(s) below shows a 1970 meeting of the fair board
at the former City Cafe on Main St.
Nachtigall was too late for the 2005 group photo above but visited with Kay
Bayouth. Kay was the treasurer for the fair board for the first 37 years and
Tharyn held the job for about the next twenty. Susan Worstell just recently
stepped into the role replacing Tharyn and said she has no plans to keep the
job as long as Kay or Tharyn did. New officers will be elected soon. If you
are interested in helping to keep this unique bit of community history alive
please contact a fair board member as they always need volunteers.
the fair board celebrated sixty years of the fair, these ladies enjoyed an old
fashioned game of dominios at the Veterans Building.
and past fair board members enjoyed cake and punch while trading stories about
past fairs and how things have changed since Collinsville was "Dairy Capital
of Oklahoma" ... how Snooks Bayouth picked the "prettiest cow"
in 1960 to help his 4-H team win the first trophy for the new Wilson Elementary
school ... how kids used to bring their animals and campout for 3 days in the
fair barn ... climbing the greased pole for the $5 on top ... over 500 dairy
goats one year in the 1970s ... frozen pipes in winter after someone forgot
to shut off the water ... etc.
