The Cowboy Prom brought in a crowd of about 75 on Saturday evening at the Morrow County Fairground’s Junior Fair Building. There were teenagers, seniors and families with children who enjoyed the prom despite the downpour of rain all evening.
Adam Barrett, a Junior Fair Board Member, explained that the all the donations from the Cowboy Prom will go to help cancer patients and their families in Morrow County.
Barrett will be a Northmor High School Senior this fall and is looking forward to the Morrow County Fair where he will have 4-H Market hogs and two other 4-H projects.
Junior Fair Coordinator, Julie Logan said the fair has grown every year since it began three years ago. It started out with just a couple dozen people with three sets for square dancing and has grown every year with more than 6 sets and many people sitting at the sidelines.
“It’s a way the youth on the Junior Fair Board can give back to the community,” said Logan. “All the benefits will stay in Morrow County for cancer patients and their families.”
