Geary County Convention and Visitor's Bureau representatives and other community leaders are taking turns spending time this week at the State Fair in Hutchinson. They are explaining and and answering questions about Geary County.

County Commission Chair Trish Giordano said many of the people they visit with had no idea about the things they could see. " We're just trying to promote our county. Of course Milford Lake is a big part of that but there's a lot of stuff in town to see. Actually had somebody sign up for our Volksmarch at the Oktoberfest next month so that was pretty exciting."

Many people ask about the fishing at the lake, and Giordano noted that many do not know about the historical features in Junction City such as the C.L. Hoover Opera House and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
