She was honored with the award because the Bloomsburg Fair has been a part of her life for over 40 years. She entered Labrador Retrievers in the Dog Show in the middle 1970’s, showing a grand champion during that time. In the 1980’s she was active as a leader in a county 4-H club and was instrumental in helping to create the original 4-H Drill Team. She operated a flower concession in the Horticultural Building for about 10 years. She later became active in the Fishing Creek Herb Guild which has a volunteer committee that maintains the gardens at the Barton House. Most recently, She has acted as coordinator for the Barton house overseeing renovation improvements during the year, as well as activities before and during the fair. Applauding in background from left are: Robert Beishline, her husband and treasurer of the Bloomsburg Fair; Scott Edwards, Superintendent of Horticulture; Paul Reichart, Bloomsburg Fair President; Jeff Giger, Superintendent of Livestock; Deborah Coleman, Bloomsburg Fair Secretary.

In the 1980’s she was active as a leader in a county 4-H club and was instrumental in helping to create the original 4-H Drill Team. She operated a flower concession in the Horticultural Building for about 10 years. She later became active in the Fishing Creek Herb Guild which has a volunteer committee that maintains the gardens at the Barton House. Most recently, She has acted as coordinator for the Barton house overseeing renovation improvements during the year, as well as activities before and during the fair. Applauding in background from left are: Robert Beishline, her husband and treasurer of the Bloomsburg Fair; Scott Edwards, Superintendent of Horticulture; Paul Reichart, Bloomsburg Fair President; Jeff Giger, Superintendent of Livestock; Deborah Coleman, Bloomsburg Fair Secretary.

In the 1980’s she was active as a leader in a county 4-H club and was instrumental in helping to create the original 4-H Drill Team. She operated a flower concession in the Horticultural Building for about 10 years. She later became active in the Fishing Creek Herb Guild which has a volunteer committee that maintains the gardens at the Barton House. Most recently, She has acted as coordinator for the Barton house overseeing renovation improvements during the year, as well as activities before and during the fair. Applauding in background from left are: Robert Beishline, her husband and treasurer of the Bloomsburg Fair; Scott Edwards, Superintendent of Horticulture; Paul Reichart, Bloomsburg Fair President; Jeff Giger, Superintendent of Livestock; Deborah Coleman, Bloomsburg Fair Secretary.

Diana Beishline, of Bloomsburg, second from right, is being presented with a surprise “Outstanding Fair Ambassador” award by Hannah Smith-Brubaker, Deputy Secretary of the PA Department of Agriculture, at far right. She was honored with the award because the Bloomsburg Fair has been a part of her life for over 40 years. She entered Labrador Retrievers in the Dog Show in the middle 1970’s, showing a grand champion during that time.

She operated a flower concession in the Horticultural Building for about 10 years. She later became active in the Fishing Creek Herb Guild which has a volunteer committee that maintains the gardens at the Barton House. Most recently, She has acted as coordinator for the Barton house overseeing renovation improvements during the year, as well as activities before and during the fair. Applauding in background from left are: Robert Beishline, her husband and treasurer of the Bloomsburg Fair; Scott Edwards, Superintendent of Horticulture; Paul Reichart, Bloomsburg Fair President; Jeff Giger, Superintendent of Livestock; Deborah Coleman, Bloomsburg Fair Secretary.
