Campers are welcome to spend a few days at the Effingham County Fairgrounds even though there's not going to be a traditional fair this year.
With the cancellation of the Effingham County Fair, it will be the first time harness racing will not be featured at the fairgrounds since 1945.
The Miss Effingham County Fair Queen pageant will be on Aug. 2 at 7:30 p.m. There will be no admittance, just streaming live on Effingham County Fair Facebook page. This year's contestants:
MASON – Emma Kuhns, a recent Altamont Community High School graduate and third-generation FFA member, was elected 2020-21 Illinois Association FFA State Treasurer during a recent state convention, which was livestreamed on Facebook due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
TOLEDO — Ron and Kathy Black of Toledo say their conservation efforts have cultivated their own slice of paradise.
Scott and Geri Wohltman both had great experiences growing up in 4-H. It only seemed natural that they would want to offer kids in Dieterich those same experiences and instill the same skills that benefited them. So, they started a 4-H club.
