Neb. State Fair honors Andersons, Caldwells
Two Webster County families are Grand Marshals
September 1, 2022
The tradition of the Nebraska State Fair Grand Marshal Program is an opportunity to thank the folks who have made significant contributions to their county fair or ag society. To salute those whom have served, individuals are selected to be Grand Marshal of each daily Nebraska State Fair Parade. These individuals are nominated and then selected on their merits and of course for what they have done for their own county fair, ag society or the youth of their county. Those chosen as Grand Marshals are recognized for an entire day of the Nebraska State Fair. They participate in the daily parade by riding in the 2022 Grand Marshal vehicle, attend a reception in their honor and receive 10 complimentary gate passes to share with family and friends.
Webster County is represented with two families with who will be recognized; as over Labor Day weekend Roy and Rosemary Anderson will be honored at 10 a.m. on Sept. 3, at a special ceremony at Nebraska Hall and then for the public at the parade at 2 p.m. On Sunday, their daughter, Dawn, and Matt Caldwell will also be honored as Nebraska State Fair Grand Marshals.
Dewey Lienemann said, "I had the opportunity to work with Roy and Rosemary for 45 years at the Webster County Fair and cannot think of any people more deserving. They exemplify what service and volunteerism is in our fairs and to our youth. It makes my heart good to see them recognized as grand marshals at the Nebraska State Fair. The same goes to their daughter, Dawn Caldwell, who follows their sterling example."
