State Rep. Leon Lillie, District 43B, recognized by the Minnesota Federation of County Fairs

State Rep. Leon Lillie, District 43B, was one of five legislators recognized by the Minnesota Federation of County Fairs as one of their 2018 Friend of County Fairs recipients. In recognizing Lillie, the federation noted his long history of supporting and promoting Minnesota’s county fairs, especially through his work as a leader on the Legacy Committee.

 “The summer is such a special time in Minnesota and county fairs are a big part of that tradition,” Lillie said. “So many children grow up learning the value of hard work by preparing projects for their county fairs. It is also a great time for families to bond with their neighbors and pass traditions on to the next generation. I know every summer I look forward to spending time at many of our county fairs and the state fair. It’s a great tradition and one I am proud to support. This summer I hope everyone is able to spend time at their county fairs supporting their neighbors and creating lifelong memories.”

 Minnesota’s Federation of County Fairs is a nonprofit organization that works closely with elected officials. They also guide, educate and inform county fairs on Minnesota’s laws and pending legislation.
