Joann Francis joined the Pocahontas County Grant Glisteners 4-H club in 1970, and was an active member throughout her school years. Joann and Brian were married in 1983 and have 2 children, Lindsey and Travis.
Joann was a leader of the Bellville Bells 4-H club for 5 years. Joann was then hired by the Pocahontas County Fair Board as the Fair Board Manager and Secretary in 2001 and remains at that position today.
Brian became involved in 4-H in 1993 helping Lindsey and Travis with their 4-H projects. Not only has Brian assisted his own children throughout their 4-H career he has been a wonderful volunteer and role model for other 4-H’ers.
Brian serves on the swine committee and is our “go to guy” for anything the staff, parents, or volunteers need during the fair. He continues to help Joann as head of maintenance.
Joann and Brian continue to enjoy the Pocahontas County Fair and plan to be active for many years to come.
