CHENANGO COUNTY– This year’s Mr. and Mrs. Chenango County Fair will make their first appearance in the Fireman’s Parade Tuesday.
The Board of Directors of the Chenango County Agricultural Society have selected Jean Townsend and Alf Franklin to be representatives of the 161st Chenango County Fair.
Townsend and Franklin have been married for 56 years. They have been attending the fair for longer than they remember. “I like to go to the fair because of the candy apples and the exhibition hall,” said Townsend.
