Fair Volunteer of Year not sheepish about helping out

first_imgWhen Maxine Osborn of Ridgefield was first told by Sharon Marble that she received this year’s Volunteer of the Year award for the Clark County Fair, she didn’t know what to say. “Why me?” Osborn asked. “Because you’re always here,” Marble replied.Volunteering has become a way of life for Osborn. When she worked as a nurse, she felt she was helping others. Knowing that there are hundreds of volunteers at the fair, she said it was a privilege to be honored. “Our society would not function half as well without volunteers,” Osborn said.• What: Clark County Fair.• Hours Tuesday: 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.• Where: 17402 N.E.
