FAIRBANKS, Alaska - The Fairbanks Chamber of Commerce welcomed the new Executive Director of the Tanana Valley State Fair today at the group's weekly luncheon.
In just two short weeks since accepting his new position, Blake Matray already has some big ideas about what direction he wants the fair to take.
Matray said that the reason he was interested in the position was he believes the fair is an important part of the community, and he wants to see it continue to flourish.
There will be a meet and greet with Matray on April 25th at the Tanana Valley State Fair Board of Directors annual meeting.
