Spencer Kane County Fair Parade Grand Marshal
By DeAnna Reeve
Introducing Gerald Spencer, who is the Kane County Fair Grand Marshal this year. Here is a little bit about this amazing man.
“I’ve lived in Glendale all my life, except for two years on a mission and nearly five years at college. I was born in the Kanab hospital, which was less than a year old then. There have been two new hospitals in Kanab since then. My dad was Howard Spencer, a grandson of Howard O. Spencer, who was president of the United Order in Orderville.
“I have been involved with the Kane County Fair for many years. I was chairman of the Fair Board many years ago. Henry Carroll was the county commissioner over the fair at that time. I’ve seen a lot of people volunteer a lot of their time to make the fair a success from year to year. I’m sure those dedicated individuals will keep working for all of us to have a great Kane County Fair from many years to come.”
The Fair Board would like to thank Gerald Spencer for his years of service, and for all the time he spends in support of this wonderful event.
Hopefully everyone is getting ready. I know I’ve seen a few people out walking their animals and have had a few calls about how to enter things they have made for the fair. This is exciting. There are rule books at the Office of Tourism, Honey’s, Glazier’s, the Volunteer Center, Terry’s Hardware Store, and Duck Creek True Value.
