NEXT WORK DAY: To be announced.
A lot at a time... and no going back!
On August 1st the Fair Association decided to tackle a huge
task. We started restoring the 4H Exhibit Hall! The
process began by removing the old tin and plywood covering up
bad boards and started the process of pressure washing the
entire building to prepare it for painting. In addition,
we decided the building looked a whole lot better with windows,
so off with the boards on the lower level. On the second
level we removed the rolled roofing and flashing in order to
paint and possibly restore the windows on the upper level down
the road. Sonny was busy with finding power lines.
New fencing went up along the west side and the Kaminski's and
Rick were working on the new blacksmith shop. Holes
got filled in and ground also got leveled. Leaves got
raked and brush got trimmed. Much continues to happen and the
park is looking better every work day. Thanks to one and
A Little at a Time...
Our second work day for the
year was a great success. Almost 50 people participated in
the rather cool and sometimes rainy conditions.
Projects included cleaning
up leaves, pine needles and downed branches on the entire
grounds, removing the second beer cooler in the lower stand,
laying sod on the new hill, grading granite on the new hill,
grinding stumps, cleaning stands, and working on water issues.
Thanks to all the volunteers for giving their personal time on
another Saturday to improve our grounds. There is real
promise here, but at the same time just, an abundant amount of
work still needs to be done. Anyone wishing to volunteer
their time, services or resources should contact Chris Martin or
one of our Fair Board members. We're excited and hope you are as
