What fun it was to surprise Myra Davies at Nevada County Resource Conservation District’s dinner last night with the news that she has been selected by the Nevada County Fairgrounds Board as the 2018 Nevada County Fair Hall of Fame inductee. The honor is given to those who have provided long-term service and dedication to the Nevada County Fair, and Myra has provided decades of support to youth in agriculture as a leader and mentor. We’ll be sharing more about Myra and the many reasons she was chosen; but right now we just want to say congratulations, Myra!
