The 2019 Henry County Fair book has been dedicated to Jeremy Lindsey, Lakeway IGA store manager.

According to a press release Wednesday, John Perkins, fair board president, and Justin Chilcutt, fair board vice president, told Lindsey about the dedication during a presentation Tuesday night at the Henry County Fairgrounds.

Lindsey grew up in the area and graduated from Henry County High School in 1995.

He began his career with Parker Farms and later became a stocker at Jim Adams IGA. He moved to James & Sons IGA and worked his way up to night manager.

In May 2005, he bought Lakeway IGA, which is a Henry County staple as a locally owned and operated grocery store.

The Paris-Henry County Chamber of Commerce named Lakeway IGA as the 2018 Business of the Year.

Lindsey also serves on the board at REAL Hope Youth Center, and previously served as a board member of the chamber as well as the Henry County Youth Baseball Association.

The 2019 fair books will be available to the public in about two weeks.

In other business, the fair board announced Wednesday morning that the fair will not include a carnival this year.
