Annamari Haffner is your 2016-2017 St. Croix County Fairest Fair of the Fair. This past January Haffner was able to attend the Wisconsin Association of Fairs Convention at the Chula Vista Resort in Wisconsin Dells, WI.
During her time in the Wisconsin Dells, she gained thirty-eight sisters. Yes thirty-eight! During the Wisconsin Association of Fairs Convention, she was able to compete for the title of Wisconsin’s Fairest of the Fairs with thirty-eight representatives from counties in Wisconsin. Even though the outcome wasn’t what she initially hoped, she still feels as if she came out on top as she grew in so many ways.
Haffner stated, “I feel more confident, I learned so much about the fair and agriculture industry, and I gained some amazing friends that I will forever call my ‘Fairest Sisters’. Everyone has been so amazing and supportive; if you would have asked me a year ago to do what I accomplished these past few days I would have told you, you were crazy and that it wouldn’t be possible but I look at myself now and can’t believe what I have achieved. I spoke on stage in front of hundreds of people, sang Jackson June Carter and Johnny Cash on stage, and accomplished so much more. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome of this competition and can’t wait to continue to represent St. Croix County as your 2016-2017 Fairest of the Fair.”
Through the generosity of the following businesses and individuals Haffner was able to assemble an amazing auction basket that was sold at the Wisconsin Association of Fairs to help fund the State Fairest of the Fair program: Chickadee Do-Da, B. Dalton Liquor, The Hazelnut, Haffner Construction, Shelby Weiske, Robin and Collen Haffner, John F. Ball and Mary Jensen.
And without the following St. Croix County Fairest of the Fair Program Sponsors our St. Croix County Fairest of the Fair program would not be what it is: St. Croix County Fair Board, Wicked Stitch Embroidery, Beth’s Jewelry Shop, Gregerson Ace Hardware and Haffner Construction.
Watch for Haffner to appear at local parades and events as the St. Croix County Fair gets closer. The St. Croix County Fair is help annually at the St. Croix County Fairgrounds in Glenwood City. This year’s dates are July 19-23 and we hope to see you there.
