5 Friday Fauquier factoids: Fair exhibit categories

Clockwise from left: Fauquier County Fair exhibits, COVID-19 vaccinations and Farm Credit dividends.

Categories of competition for exhibitors at the Fauquier County Fair July 14-17.

Judges will award ribbons for fruits, vegetables, quilts, photographs, baked goods, woodworking projects and more.

The largest category of competition, “baked goods” has 35 varieties, ranging from decorated animal cupcakes and gluten-free cookies to pecan pies and professionally decorated cakes.

It takes a full day of judging to determine the best in each category. All entries remain on display in the exhibit building throughout the fair.

$2.3 million

Annual patronage dividends the Warrenton branch of Farm Credit of the Virginias recently paid to customer-owners.

The Warrenton office has approximately 850 individuals and businesses with active loans.

Based on 2020 performance, Farm Credit of Virginia paid $40 million in dividends to customer-owners in 96 Virginia, Maryland and West Virginia counties.

The institution has 22 offices and outstanding loans totaling $1.8 billion.


Doses of COVID-19 vaccine the Fauquier County Department of Emergency Services and its partners had administered as of June 30.

Those included 12,574 first doses and 13,610 second doses.

That represents about 36 percent of the shots given Fauquier residents.

Fauquier Health, the Town of Warrenton, Lord Fairfax Community College and regional medical volunteers helped with the county vaccination clinics that took place in a Warrenton Village shopping center storefront.

$9.8 million

The total unpaid fines, restitution and fees in Fauquier County’s three courts.

Despite judges’ orders it remains difficult to collect from the debtors — some in prison, some poor and some who’ve left the area.

The totals:

$5.559 million in Fauquier County Circuit Court.

$4.149 million in Fauquier County General District Court.

$262,709 in Fauquier County Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court.

(Last week’s total lacked general district court’s report.)


Open, full-time teaching positions listed on the Fauquier County Public Schools website Friday afternoon.

The open positions include nine for elementary school teachers, four in special education, four in math and three in Spanish.

All teachers will report to work for the 2021-22 term on Wednesday, Aug. 4, with students starting classes one week later.
