2021 Lifetime Service Award 

Leonard Stocks

Leonard Stocks has been volunteering on the fairgrounds as long as we can remember. He is always at set-up nights and clean-up days, mowing the grounds or helping at the Horse Show arena those early morning show days. He was the Horse Show Superintendent from 1976 - 1979 with his daughters showing horses. Of course, now, with Mary by his side, they would never miss a single Fisher Fair! They greet friends, bring old friends back and meet many new friends during the week and don’t know a stranger! You could call them the “greeters” at the fair! Mary also provided for many years her famous Strawberry Pies at the church food stand! Congratulations Leonard and Mary of 20 years of marriage! Keep on coming and supporting our fair! Here’s to many more years of life together and great times at the Fisher Fair!

Don and Lois Wood

Don and Lois Wood  have been an intrical part of the Fisher Fair for years with Don being Livestock Superintendent in the mid-late ‘70’s and showing beef cattle at the fair since the old tent days in 1948. Lois was the Entertainment Director who helped bring in country stars like Billy Crash Craddock, Crystal Gayle, Bobby Bare and Eddie Rabbit in the ’70’s. Lois still helps in the exhibit building and keeps us organized in the office on judging day. Their children all grew up showing cattle at the fair and entering their flowers and baking items in the exhibit building. Don and Lois moved from Fisher in 1977 but they are not too far away! They will be celebrating 62 years of wedded life this year! Congratulations Don and Lois on a lifetime of helping the Fisher Fair be what it is today and the many memories that your family has and continues to have at the Fisher Fair! 

Marge Probasco

Marge Probasco  began helping at Fisher Fair in 1999. She would work nights and weekends before the fair cleaning. After she retired from Vesuvius in Fisher in December of that year, she started to help more around the exhibit building on the fairgrounds. She then was asked to be Superintendent in the Exhibit building and has had that position ever since. She continues to help with the 5K making sure everyone is hydrated after their run/walk. Bingo is her “thing” and started the Bingo at the fair. She loves every minute at the fair and she has met so many new friends and loves working with everyone. She’s truly a cheerleader for all projects that are brought into the building and is a recruiter for any volunteers that we need during fair week. Marge is a cancer survivor and donates her time for Relay for Life, Community Blood Drives and Cooperative Extension , to name a few. She’s also a Helping Hand at the school and keeps track of classmates. She is a great grandmother of 5 with 2 in college. Thank you Marge for the years of dedication that you have had to the fair and to your Fisher community. You are not done yet!! Your passion for mankind is one to be admired. May God continue to richly bless you!
