Remembering Cole

Written by Leslie Means

Last year – you all helped share the love for the Roseberry family after their son, Cole passed away.

You helped us find an image that meant so much to Cole’s mom.  

You helped us pay for stamps to send notes to the family.

You sent love and prayers and much needed comfort to all those hurting after the loss.

We were blown away by your support.  It’s been nearly a year since the tragic accident and we’re asking for your help – again.  

CR’s Beef Barn, a new concession stand will occupy the Harvest Room of the Exhibit Building at this year’s Buffalo County Fair. CR’s Beef Barn, or CR’s for short will serve Certified Angus Beef, complete with home-style fixings and sides.

CR’s is s a way the Buffalo County Fair is able to commemorate the memory of Fair Manager Dave Roseberry’s son Cole, who passed away last July. “CR” represents Cole’s initials.

For every meal purchased $1 will be donated back to the Cole Roseberry Memorial Fund, which provides aid to elementary schools and sports programs.

“We would eventually like to be able to donate $1,000 to each of the 10 elementary schools,” said Roseberry. “Themoney goes to children in need of basic items such as winter coats and shoes. We have also donated money to sports programs that Cole felt strongly about.”

CR’s will be in operation July 23-27. Wednesday-Sunday evenings from 5-9 p.m. and Friday-Sunday lunch from11-3 p.m. in the air conditioned Harvest Room, located in the Exhibit Building.
