Scholarship Applications Now Being Accepted

The deadline for scholarship applications has been set for June 30, 2010. Applications are available at the guidance offices in the area school. If you need forms, please contact our secretary, Lisa Shimels or one of the other directors who can help you out.

Look in the "Fair Scholarship" section on our website for the criteria on the eligibility requirements. There are two scholarships offered, one for pursuit in the agricultural field and one for non agricultural. Don't let the deadline pass! Each scholarhip is $1,000.00.

Worknights Every Tuesday

Worknights have started on every Tuesday evening from 5:00 p.m. on. There are projects once again to be completed before fair time. Work has begun on roads around the grounds. There will be upkeep and repairs to some of the buildings.

New drainage has started on our parking fields with the generosity of the Harwinton Lions Club donating materials for this work. With proper drainage of the water on those fields, the grounds will be improved to allow better use of those areas during concerts, fair parking and other events at our facilities.

Painting is an ongoing task. Keeping up the buildings and grounds take a lot of time and effort from our directors and members. Volunteers are always welcome. Just show up on Tuesday and we'll definitely find something you can do to help out. You can also contact one of our directors or members who will be happy to hear from you.
