Fairgrounds Foundation Scholarship Winners: Catharine Renner & Justin Kilgore

Congratulations to Catharine Renner and Justin Kilgore, recipients of this year’s Nevada County Fairgrounds Foundation Scholarships. The Foundation scholarship is awarded to local high school students who exhibit in the Fair, attend the Fairgrounds Foundation’s speaker series, and write an essay explaining what they learned from the speaker series. Catharine graduated from Bear River and will attend UC Davis this fall as a Nutritional Science major in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. Justin also graduated from Bear River and will attend Butte College in the fall, where he’ll be playing baseball at the college and pursing a career in agriculture. Both Catharine and Justin will be exhibiting at this year’s Fair – both will be showing market steers and Justin’s Ag Mechanics project won best of show – so stop by and congratulate them!

Thank You, Foothill Lions Club

We have many people to thank for making Saturday night’s Fairgrounds Foundation Cioppino Feed a success, but we have to give a huge shout out to Chef Arnie Romanello (he’s the one in the right hand corner) and the entire Foothill Lions Club for preparing all the food for the sold out crowd. As always, the food was delicious, and we truly couldn’t have done it without this fine group of hard working volunteers!
