“It’s just a great feeling to be here, and seeing everybody’s hard work that they’ve been putting in on the projects that they entered and got judged on. It just, it’s awesome,” Mary said while tearing up.”It could not happen without all the people that we have doing all the different things. You know, barn superintendent, or being a judge. You know we have to get the judges to come here. Getting the entertainment all lined up, and people to agree to come and give up their weekend to participate. I don’t know, it’s just awesome,”
