The people make St. Maries great!


St. Maries is a great place to live. Not only do we have an abundance of scenic wonder, and a multitude activities and events, we have some pretty fantastic people.

Many of those fantastic people will be recognized and remembered this weekend during the Benewah County Fair. The theme of this year’s fair is “Celebrating 100 years of 4-H and Fair.”

Scores of local residents from throughout Benewah County have volunteered their time and effort to create a fun, educational environment through the 4-H program year after year.  The annual Benewah County Fair, Aug. 16-19, gives these 4-H club members the opportunity to showcase their projects.

During Saturday’s Junior Show Market Animal Sale some other pretty fantastic people will step forward to help those participants by buying their market steer, swine, sheep and goats.

Past 4-H Club leaders and members will be honored during the 100th birthday celebration at the fairgrounds at 1 p.m. Sunday. The public is invited to the celebration which will include cake and ice cream.

Yes, St. Maries is rich in scenic beauty, that and pretty fantastic people too.
