Each year the Nevada County Fairgrounds Board of Directors selects the Family of the Year for the 2013 Fair. Fairgrounds CEO Sandy Wood say this years choice is the McIntosh Family. The Board chose John and Cindy McIntosh, adult children Maranda Brannon and Kylle Rose; and two children at home, Kaytlin and J.T; along with three grandchildren for their ongoing support of the Fair and its Foundation, as well as for their commitment to volunteerism in the community.

“The Fair is the focal point of the year for many people,” says John. “For us, it is an opportunity to interact with other adult and youth community organization members, and see the growth and accomplishments of our county’s youth. We enjoy everything about the Fair, and we don’t want to miss a minute of it.”
John is a Captain with the Higgins Fire Department, where he has worked for the past 20 years. He volunteers with Nevada County 4-H, where he helps with youth summer camp; and volunteers at various 4-H events held throughout Northern California. Cindy, who works for the Renwick Home Team Real Estate office, also volunteers with Nevada County 4-H, where she has held executive offices; and is the community club leader for Cool Hollow 4-H and camp director for Woodchuck Flat 4-H summer camp.
The McIntosh Family will be honored at the Fair’s opening ceremonies.
