Today, County Commissioner Kelly Simmelink gave Ranch Matters the Grand Tour and personally invited all Crooked River Ranch residents to attend.



Simmelink commented: “The place is popping, we’ve got camel rides, kids are showing their animals and projects…” “I can’t wait for you to see the place, it looks like a million bucks…”




Brian Crow, the Fair Coordinator also extended an invitation to the Ranch and provided a brief overview of the Fair activities, entertainment and carnival.
