A longtime member and past president of the Henry County Fair Association’s board of directors has been honored by having this year’s fair book dedicated to him.

Vic Adams was presented the award Thursday night at a special meeting of the board at the Henry County Fairgrounds pavilion.

“Even though his time as a board member has ended, one thing you can be certain of ... Vic will be at the fairgrounds before, during and after the fair, ensuring its continued success,” the dedication reads in part.

Adams became a member of the association’s board of directors in 1995, and has served as its vice president and president.

During his 24 years with the board, Adams served in many capacities, including the grounds, book and livestock committees, as well as Junior Steer chairman and co-chairman.

The son of the late Verble and Horace Adams, he has a farm in the Buchanan area that was added last year to the list of Henry County’s Century Farms — farms that have been in operation in the same family for at least 100 years.

He and Lesa Adams, his wife of 45 years, have three children and two grandchildren.

In addition to farming, Adams worked for 38 years for the Tennessee Department of Transportation.
