MARY & WILBUR WAFEL
Chances are if you attended school at any Hudson, Keenesburg, or Prospect schools you may have had one of these wonderful teachers, or you may have just stopped in for an ice cream cone at the Dairy King! It is kind hearted, hard working, great examples like these two who resound the community spirit of our fair! Smile and give them a big wave as they ride by in this year’s parade!
The South East Weld County Fair Board has honored us in being the parade Grand Marshals for 2023. We became a part of the community in 1970. Wilbur taught shop Classes for 9 years in our school district. I taught elementary physical education in Brighton for a few years . I was a substitute teacher for a number of years in our school district. We opened the C&J Dairy King in 1986-2000. We have two amazing sons Charlie and John. Our family has been blessed with 5 grandchildren . We have so many friends who have enriched our lives and loving memories. We wish all of you fair participants the best of luck. Again we want to thank the hard working and wonderful fair board for selecting us to be the parade Grand Marshals . Have a great fair.
