The event is held every two years, Quay County Health Council member Bonnie Smith Osborn. She said that off time is spent lining up the different exhibitors and displays and coordinating the entire event.

"I've been a part of the council for seven years," Osborn said. "This fair is the most anticipated event held by the council."

Osborn said she felt the event was a success, the residents of the county were able to take advantage of all of the services offered at the fair.

"It was a lot of work," Osborn said. "I helped to set up, as well as manning a booth for MECA Therapy."
