The 78th-annual Fayette County Shepherds Club Banquet will be held at 7 p.m., Thursday April 5 in the Mahan Building at the Fayette County Fairgrounds.
It will feature the traditional roast lamb dinner with all the trimmings, prepared and served by the Willow Restaurant. Tickets for the event may be purchased at Prime Meats and Deli, the secretary’s office at the fairgrounds or from any Shepherds Club director.
Highlights of the program following the meal will include a report from Fayette County resident and 2018 Ohio Lamb and Wool Queen, Courtney Hagler, the selection of the 2018 Fayette County Lamb Queen to succeed current Queen Macy Detty, and recognition of Fayette County Junior Fair sheep exhibitors.
Local resident and motivational speaker, Chris Paisley, will share some of his experiences in the “tough man” contest, which measures endurance and stamina. Paisley recently participated in such an event in Iceland.
