Jones proud of 25 years of help at state fair

Aurelia resident Bruce Jones completed a milestone in his Iowa State Fair role as superintendent of the 4-H beef fair in Des Moines, which concluded Aug. 18.

Jones has served in that capacity for 25 years.

“It went well. We didn’t have record numbers, but we had good numbers this year with 400 4-H kids showing. I arrange the help for the building. The first day is weigh-in, measure and identity day,” said Jones.

Over the years, Jones has had a chance to get to know many 4-H families.
