MONMOUTH - This year's Prime Beef Festival Parade grand marshal has been involved with the fair for over half a century.

 

Ralph Elliott was named Beef Committee chairman in 1965 and president in 1968.

 

For not only Ralph, but the entire Elliott clan, the Prime Beef Festival has long been near to their hearts. At age 94 ... "All of my kids and grandkids have shown at the festival." said Ralph.

 

[son] Dan likened the effort to a community coming together to raise a barn."Like a lot of thigs, people came together to make it happen." said Ralph. "We are the verified, true prime beef captital of the world."
