HOWARD COUNTY AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY
The mission of the Howard County Agricultural Society shall be the preservation of the past, promotion of the present, and education on the future, of agriculture, horticulture, mechanical arts, and rural and domestic economy of the Howard County Community.
The Society shall hold and promote a county fair each year to serve as its primary medium to achieve its mission. The primary focus of the county fair is to, first and foremost, serve as a showcase of the talents of the youth of the community by providing a means of education, exhibit and competition of the various livestock and non-livestock projects the youth are involved in. The Society will also use the county fair to highlight the heritage of the community, and its ties to agriculture, industry, and businesses that are the backbone of the community.
The Society shall also host and promote non-fair events that will aid in sustaining the Society, while keeping in focus the overall mission of the Society. It will use its own Board members, as well as volunteers from community organizations, civic clubs and individuals to make up the necessary manpower and expertise that is needed to insure the Society fulfills its mission.
