Harrisburg, PA – Miss Pennsylvania 2018, Kayla Repasky of Gettysburg, Adams County, kicked off Children’s Story Time during opening day at the 103rd Pennsylvania Farm Show. Storytime offers an opportunity to share agriculture-themed childrens’ stories in recognition of this year’s Farm Show theme, “Inspiring Pennsylvania’s Story.”
“Agriculture is so important because it is our number one industry in Pennsylvania,” Repasky said. “It is so cool that we are able to start off the year by celebrating agriculture and what is so important to Pennsylvania.”
Repasky read her own children’s book, “Buddy and the Bully”. Throughout the week, special guests, including the Pennsylvania Dairy Princesses will read agriculture-themed stories on the Main Hall Stage, near the carousel.
