The Harrison County Fair got underway today with Harrison County Commissioners Don Bethel and Dale Norris, and Congressman Bill Johnson on hand to kick off the festivities. In addition, Harrison Central Senior and Future Farmer of America Joelle Jones takes a minute from tending to her animals to pose for a photo.
