Key fair volunteers
The Jefferson County Fair kicks off this week, and volunteers play a big part.
Local high school Key Club members are in charge of the Kids' Corner open class exhibits. On Monday, students received artwork and creations from local youngsters, who will earn ribbons and premium money.
Key Club leader Kim Schmith, who also serves as the Jefferson County Fair open class coordinator, said she couldn't do Kids' Corner without the Key Club members.
"They are young leaders today making a difference in our community," she said.
The fair is open to the public from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, July 21-24 at the fairgrounds.
