2011 Sonoma County Fair Photos

2011 Sonoma County Fair
Here are some photos from the SCF last summer. Enjoy!

Alternate Dairy Princess Samantha Spaletta and Dairy Princess Amanda Moretti pass out ribbons and announce classes at the Open Dairy Show.


Meanwhile at the Dairy Barn....
North Bay Dairy Women staff the Dairy Information Booth.
Below Kristy Spaletta & President Audrey Wheeler
work at the feed sample and literature table.

Kristy and her daughter are working hard with the instant printer!
As a new attaction to the Dairy Booth, NBDW purchased a small printer so we could take photos of kids with a calf (and some adults who wouldn't take no!).
As we took a photo, we sent it to print and they were able to leave with their very own
Dairy Moo-mento!
We need a bit of work to make this happen a bit quicker, but it was a great first time experience.
Look forward to seeing who comes back at the 2012 fair for a picture.

Here are some friends of North Bay Dairy Women Friends
 and the Calf.

Recognize Anyone?

And finally, a great photo of many of the 4-H & FFA Dairy Exhibitors in the Barn.  Looks like "Fair Time is Fun Time!"
