"If I had the time, I would pinch myself. We’re taking off for Nashville and Memphis to immerse ourselves in Tennessee music and culture . At home, in Auckland, New Zealand, our immediate family of four has eclectic music tastes. But, we agree most passionately on the music that comes out of Tennessee"...

Hello, my name is George Wallace. I have been on the Board of Directors of the Wilson County Fair for over 10 years now. In that time I have served in many capacities. The latest of these is this blog. This blog will cover many subjects with the main focus being on us senior citizens. Don't stop reading because you are not a senior citizen, you might enjoy some of this content also.
The Wilson County Fair blogs will be a series of blogs by the Wilson County Staff and Web Committee Members.
The bloggers will be based on the Wilson County Fair website - www.WilsonCountyFair.net but the blogs will automatically update our social media accounts - Facebook and Twitter. And once we get these blogs rollings you will be able to log into the Fair website and make a comment to your favorite blogger!
We look forward to seeing you at the 2012 Wilson County Fair (and Online!)
Peter Beare, Wilson County Fair Webmaster
