Terry and Belva Mai

Terry and Belva Mai moved to Coquille in June, 1980.  They both started work with Coos County.  Terry as an Accountant, Belva as a Printer.  They both retired June 30th, 2003.  They both started working as volunteers at the fair in 2000.  They were both members of the Coos Community Foundation which was started by Nikki Whitty.  They both ran the Friends of the Fair Booth during the fair every year, after the 2014 fair the food booth is no long in business.  All net proceeds were donated to the County Fair for various projects.

Terry was Coquille Chamber of Commerce Director two different times and Treasurer of the CCF. Currently Terry is treasurer of Coquille Senior Activity Center, commander of American Legion Post 36, Chaplain of VFW Post 965.

Belva is on the board of the Coquille Senior Activity Center.  Paints pictures of horses and their riders on wooden plaques of SWOHA.  Does posters for various groups in Coquille and the county.  She has designed and makes the buttons for the Coquille Gay 90s.  She is also a member of the VFW Post 965 Ladies Auxilliary.

Currently they are members of the Coquille Carousel Association for Coos County and usually volunteer for those who can talk them into doing so.

Almost 50 years Coos County Fair and Rodeo supporter.  We helped Delos Hermann with scramble lams, rode our horses in the Fair Parade, five a Memorial Trophy in Dick's memory, as well as an additional trophy for FFA.  I am a supporter of the FFA Auction, several times.

With Nikki Whitty, formed Friends of the Fair to help Opal's kitchen.  (Opal Davis Brockman held the Annual Apple Pie Contest for years)  Terry Mai was Treasurer, Belva Mai and Mary Barton - Members-at-large.  That organization is now dissolved - not enough volunteers to work the Pepsi Booth.  I have really enjoyed continuing to assist Dian Davis Pendergast (Opal's daughter) and her cousin Linda Markham with the Annual Apple Pie Contest.

I also organize the Opening Ceremonies each year for the Fair, the Community Tent with the Cities and Chambers from each area of the County and help with the Stage Entertainment.

I will continue helping both City and County when needed.  Thank you for the honor to be Grand Marshall in 2015.
