Following the tree and wreath contest, ICTGA members set up their exhibit booth. The association thanks Milt Yakey for serving as the ICTGA State Fair Coordinator for over 25 years. Milt has worked extremely hard rounding up volunteers for the ICTGA exhibit booth to help inform thousands of fair attendees about the benefits and beauty of real Christmas trees. This year, more than 25 ICTGA members volunteered their services. Thank you to all for your help in promoting real Christmas trees.
