The Lebanon Wilson County Chamber and Wilson County Promotions hosted their annual fair-time Business Before Hours in Fiddlers Grove on Tuesday, August 18, 2015.
With over 100 in attendance, this year’s Business Before Hours is one of the largest events of its kind to date. Breakfast was provided at the fairgrounds, where those in attendance heard a brief summary of current Wilson County Fair attendance and upcoming events for both the fair and the Chamber.
Wilson County Fair officials also presented their annual Old Timers Award to this year’s recipients, Alice and Johnny Trice of Lebanon.
Alice and Johnny have been married for sixty years and have two children, five grandchildren, and two great grandchildren. The Trices have been actively involved in the community over the years. Alice’s love of flowers and gardening led her to become involved in the Wilson County Gardener’s Guild and Oakland Home Demonstration Club. She is also a past Chairman of the Wilson County Fair Flower Show. Johnny has served on the Chamber of Commerce Board, Wilson Bank & Trust Board, People’s Bank Board, and is Past President of the Wilson County Fair Board. Johnny goes into his office every day and he is still active on his farm. Alice and Johnny love to travel and have visited every state in the U.S. Still, they spend time each year at the Wilson County Fair looking at exhibits and visiting with people.
In addition to having their names added to a plaque that will remain at the fairgrounds, Old Timers award recipients are presented with rocking chairs courtesy of Cracker Barrel Old Country Store.
