This week we celebrate the 71st Annual Howard County Fair in West Friendship, Maryland. S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows has supported the Fair for many years with booths in the exhibit hall and active participation in the Friday night livestock auctions. We have also provided many of the buildings on the fair grounds with roofing and other improvements throughout the years.

S&K’s participation in the Howard County Fair stems from a love the county and its community by S&K owner, Don Katzenberger. As a child, Don grew up in Howard County and attended Glenelg High School. Many of Don’s friends were farmers and Don grew to love the country life. Today, Don and his family own their own farm with goats, chickens, geese and guinea fowl.

And as tradition has it, each year S&K places and ad in the HoCoMo Freddies newspaper supporting the Fair and the 4-H Programs in both Howard and Montgomery County, which features children who are members of the extended S&K family. This year’s ad features the children of S&K CFO Scott Hanel and his wife Stephanie.

This year, you will once again see S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows participating the Livestock Auction on Friday evening, August 12th. Come see us and the other great folks at the Howard County Fair!

S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows’ Owner Engages in Record-High Bidding War at Howard County Fair 4-H Auction

— Grand Champion hog soars to $30 per pound in exciting bidding frenzy —

ELDERSBURG, Md. August 19, 2009 – S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows (SKRoofing.com) continued their support of the Howard County Fair for the 9th consecutive year by taking part in the 4-H livestock auction, held on Friday evening, August 14th. This year, although not able to walk away with the Grand Champion hog, S&K owner Don Katzenberger gave it a valiant effort, bidding head-to-head with Giant Food and ultimately driving the price to a record-high $30 per pound.

Although the Grand Champion hog was not in the cards for them this year, Katzenberger and the S&K team still considers the event a success. They were able to bid on and purchase two hogs and a steer, and the company manned a 10’x30′ exhibit in the main hall throughout the week.

“That was by far the most exciting 4-H auction we’ve participated in,” stated Katzenberger. “You know it’s all for a good cause, and you just get so caught up in it at the moment! We can’t imagine a better way to support the kids that work so hard every year to raise these prize-winning animals. This country was built by hard-working families like the farmers of Howard County. These kids are our future and we are proud of their accomplishments.”

The 64th Annual Howard County Fair was held in West Friendship, Maryland from August 8th to August 15th, 2009. The 4-H livestock auction typically marks the finale of the fair each year, with proceeds going in part to the 4-H youth members who help raise animals for
the auction.

About the Maryland 4-H Program

4-H is the youth development program of Maryland Cooperative Extension and has been an active part of Howard County for over 80 years. Throughout the years, thousands of young people have participated in 4-H programs developing their skills in leadership, citizenship, and achievement. In fact, the success of the Howard County Fair can in large part be attributed to 4-H youth, who highlight the fair every year with various livestock exhibits, home art entries, public speaking and educational demonstrations.
