The Grand Marshall’s for this year’s parade are Bob and Lila Maher. Bob is a 45 year Fairboard member and Sheep Superintendent and former 4H Leader of the Poweshiek Pals. He has seen alot of changes in the fair and been through 2 floods. His wife, Lila ran a concession stand at the Jasper County Fair for 35 years for the Mingo and Colfax-Mingo Schools. Now that it ended, she continues to help at the fair volunteering as a photography Superintendent in the Youth Building and you will also see her selling Sawdust for the fairboard. All for of their children showed at the JCF. Four of their grandchildren and now their great grandkids are showing. So their roots run deep for the JCF. Congrats to Bob & Lila Maher and thank you for dedication and support of the Jasper County Fair!
