Faircracker SUMMER 2019 Nicole Jones, Chair


YPI Spotlight on Andrew “Aj Ross”


How did I get into the Fair Industry?


YPI Chair Nicole Jones looks on as President Paul Davis presents a check for $2,000 to Lori Slaven, Executive Director of the Lee Conlee House in Putnam County


The Lee Conlee House (LCH) Domestic Violence Shelter is committed to recognizing and responding to our community’s need for comprehensive, multicultural domestic violence services. We understand that domestic violence in its fullest scope impacts primary victims, family members, society and future generations.With this in mind, it is our goal to stop the campaign of violence by providing crisis intervention, emergency shelter, advocacy, treatment, prevention, and education through the establish- ment of community partnerships.


My family, Ross Concessions,


has been in the fair industry as independent concession- aires for over 35 years. I was born into the business and have been out on the road ever since. When I was able to count to 20, I started giving change back to the customers. Why I love the fair industry I love the fair industry because of the friendships and


mentorships that are acquired along the way. Also, the traveling aspect of the business. We never see the same place in one year. We are always moving and providing a good fair experience for the patrons. What I do for the fair industry As a independent concessionaire's kid, I continue to up-

hold the teachings of my parents and the way we operate our business. We, as Ross Concessions, try to contribute our time into each and every fair we work to provide the fair and the fair goers with a great experience that they will re- member for years to come. I have grown up around our fairs for the better part of my life like Pasco County Fair with Jim Ward and Tracy Thompson. They have watched me grow up over the 16 years that we have been at their fair. Why I love the YPI I love the YPI because of the connections that I get to


make, as a concessionaire, with people that are my age, but from the other side of the business. I never got to see the "fair" side of things. I always got to see the concession- aire's side of things, so being able to communicate with people about how the fair operates is part of why YPI is perfect for me. What I hope to bring to YPI/what I've learned from it I've learned from YPI that there is always something


more that we can do. This year with the donations that we gave to the Lee Conley Charity was a huge accomplish- ment that we wouldn't have been able to do if it wasn't for Nicole Jones and Andrea Simeone and all the effort that they put into the charity. There's always more that we can do and more that we can contribute to make our society a better one.


CONGRATULATIONS BILL OLSON!


OUR FIRST YPI MEMBER TO BE ELECTED PRESIDENT


OF THE FLORIDA FEDERATION OF FAIRS.
