The Penner Family, Arlene, Steve and daughter Morgan, have been heavily involved in the fair each year not only through their involvement in the 4-H program but volunteer and assist in other areas at the fair – for example volunteering their tractor and personnel to drag the arena during the tractor pulls and demo derby as well as straw for numerous fair events. Steve color codes the sold sale animals to designate the buyers at the Market Sale, volunteers a skid steer and helps clean the beef barn and also helps with tag-in in March, Arlene is the treasurer and past secretary for the Market Sale Committee and volunteers at the beef show and round robin. Morgan donates cattle for the showmanship demonstration as well as being the instructor for youth on showmanship and beef husbandry. She volunteers at the beef show as ring stewardess and also helps in the Round Robin. The Penner family has provided the housing for an FFA member who didn’t have the facility to do a project.
