The 2017/ 65th annual Brown County Youth Fair
is dedicated to Delton Sweatman.

  Delton has been a Brown County Fair Association member, friend, donor, and volunteer in many leadership capacities. Delton has become most synonymous over his past 47 years of service, as the face of the Brown County Fair Association's finance committee. Delton's commitment and leadership, within the finance committee during each one of these 47 years has resulted in making each premium sale better than the last. Delton's works and deeds have impacted generations of Brown County's youth, and we are forever indebted for the legacy he has given to us.

Colton Edgar top hand award 2017 sponsored by Alderman Cave

He is quoted as saying, “ I have gained much from 4-H that no one can ever take from me. I believe I have learned the value of clean living; how to be a good loser as well as a winner; I know the value of money, the value of good livestock how to improve pastures and how to feed and manage livestock. Above all, I think 4-H has helped me develop proper attitudes and personality. It can do the same for every boy and girl who is interested in our nation’s welfare and in keeping it democratic and the world’s leader in agriculture.” Putter was always giving back to the youth fair, this was a trait he learned as a youth where he grew up in a home that put community service first and self down the list. As a "I Dare You Honor Roll" recipient in 1949 from the Danforth Foundation, he was challenged to dare greatly, to live usefully, and share freely all worthwhile things in life. He met this challenge wholeheartedly.   The Brown County Fair benefited from his participation as a board member, steering committee member involved in building current Earl Q. Wilson rodeo arena, outstanding buyer, leader and supporter of youth.
