The Macoupin County Fair would not be the same if people like Bill and Donna Sonneborn of Hettick were not involved.

In an annual nod to the fair’s dedicated volunteers, the Fair Board bestowed upon the Sonneborns the honor of being named 2013 MCF Senior King and Queen.

The couple live in Hettick and have been married 61 years.

The Fair Board picks a pair of individuals as Senior King and Queen who best represent the spirit of the fair through all of the years of hard work and loyalty they contributed to the event. The couple serves as the official host and hostess of the 2013 fair.
