The 2013 Augusta County Fair Is Dedicated to:

Susie Shiflett

Susie has dedicated countless hours over the past 15 years to helping the Fair become what it is today.  When the Augusta County Fair restarted in 1995, Susie was involved with helping her children show animals during the first fair week.  This evolved into a role on the Board of Directors until 2005 when she transitioned to Fair      Manager which she maintained until 2010.

During her time as a Fair Board Member and Fair Manager Susie could be found at all fair functions.  During the week of the Fair Susie would be at the Fairgrounds from early in the morning until the last act was finished.  She did not have a specific job but could be found doing everything the week of the Fair from sweeping the Expo building floors to doing television interviews to promote the Fair.  She dedicated her time and efforts to ensuring that the Augusta County Fair would continue on from year to year.

Susie resides in Fort Defiance with her husband Larry on their beef and dairy farm.
