This year’s Farm & City Days button was designed by NRHEG fourth-grader Michelle Katzung. She is the daughter of Chad and Barb Katzung.

Buttons are $5 each and can be purchased at many of the New Richland businesses. The button will allow you into the breakfast for only $2.00 and free admission into Saturday’s Street dance and a chance at cash prizes.

Once again New Richland will be holding a Farmer’s Tan Contest. Vote for your favorite “farmer’s tan” at the New Richland Idol Contest, at Saturday’s Pancake Breakfast and at the Chore Boy contest. Winner will be announced at the Chore Boy Contest and can be seen showing off their tan in Sunday’s Grand Parade.
