O’Quin – who is in her third year of helping with the fair – said she was approached by fellow members of the congregation at First Baptist about being this year’s chairman after the previous chairman decided she could not do it anymore. She gladly accepted the opportunity.
“I just had a really great team this year,” she said. “Michelle Garcia and Stephanie White have kind of co-chaired this with me this year and they’ve really been great. I couldn’t have done it without them.”
A Plano native originally, O’Quin said the Mineral Wells community holds a special place in her heart.
“I enjoy helping the community,” she said. “My husband and his family have grown up in this community, so it’s just really special to us.”
Anyone interested in donating to the fair can either take their contributions to the office at First Baptist Church or call 940-654-0127 for pick up.
