Vicki and Ken Robison are no strangers to the Coos county Fair. They
have always enjoyed attending the fair and when their children, Stacey
and Lalori, were old enough to join 4-H in 1978 the adventure began.
The family spent many years as exhibitors with the Twin Oaks 4-H club
and later as leaders in the Arago Livestock 4-H Club from 1984 - 1990.
Since that time Ken and Vicki have supported the 4-H program and the fair
through awards, donating to the pig scramble, participating in the annual
livestock auction and exhibiting their antique tractors. The highlight of recent
years has been watching their grandchildren's time in the 4-H and auction
Ken received his first tractor from the Sinko family in the mid 90's. Ken's
uncle was the original owner. Restoring that tractor was beginning of the
family collection that is now enjoyed year after year by fairgoers.
Vicki is a descendant of the Strain family of Coos and Curry Counties. When
she married Ken Robison in 1964 she joined another large family from
Coos County. After spending a few years in the Army, Ken worked 35 years
as a millwright for Roseburg Forest Products, retiring in 2005. Vicki has spent
her years not only caring for the family but serving her community as a 45 year
member of the Beta Sigma Phi sorority.
The Coos County Fair and Rodeo patrons have greatly benefited from their endless
support and we are proud to have these deserving people as the Grand Marshals
for this year's fair.
