The 2016 Alaska State Fair, Inc. annual membership meeting took place Thursday, February 11 at Raven Hall on the fairgrounds, with approximately 100 Fair members and interested supporters in attendance.
The main item of business was the election of two members to the Fair’s seven-member board of directors. From a ballot of four candidates, including two incumbents, Fair members voted to reelect Stephen Brown of Palmer and John Tracy of Anchorage. Brown and Tracy will each serve a three-year term on the board.
Annual meeting guests had the opportunity to sample cuisine from seven Fair food vendor applicants, who were on hand showcasing their sample menus. Featured at the annual meeting were Bear Naked BBQ, Los Tacos, LOUKS Crepes, Moose Bites Personal Chefs, NonEssentials, Paco’s Paella, and The Ramp – Kasilof River Lodge.
Four lucky Fair members also went home with door prizes, including two tickets to the first annual Concert Kick-Off Party, which will take place April 2 Glenn Massay Theater; two tickets to any show in the 2016 concert series, to be announced at the April 2 kick-off event; two 2016 Fair season passes; and a family fun pack.
Thank you to everyone who attended this year’s annual meeting!
