At Tuesday night’s Nevada County Fairgrounds Foundation meeting, the Foundation Board approved funds to begin several projects at the Fairgrounds, including adding more shade to Treat Street, painting the Northern Mines Building and Sugar Pine Lodge, adding new air conditioners to Ponderosa Hall, and adding a mobile ATM. We’ll keep you posted on these projects once work begins in 2018, but we really want to thank our Fairgrounds Foundation (and all the members and volunteers) for all their hard work in raising funds to keep our Fairgrounds beautiful. We so appreciate you all!
Sue Ebeler, Associate Dean for Undergraduate Academic Programs at UC Davis and Professor of Viticulture and Enology, spent part of this evening talking to local high school students as part of the third season of the Nevada County Fairgrounds Foundation’s Speaker Series. This monthly series, which continues through May, provides business advice, tips and leadership experience to local high school students. Many thanks to Sue for sharing her time and advice with the students tonight!
The Nevada County Fairgrounds Foundation is launching its third season of the Fairgrounds Foundation Speaker Series. Set to begin November 8, the series brings business education – through access to business leaders and real-life leadership experiences – to local high school students. At each session students have an opportunity to hear about the speaker’s career path, how goals were achieved and obstacles overcome, insight regarding areas of expertise, and ask questions.
The series will feature six speakers, one each month, and will run through May. Speaker dates are November 8, January 17, February 21, March 14, April 11 and May 9. Each session is about an hour.
The series is open to all high school Fair exhibitors, so all high school students who exhibited at this year’s Fair are invited to attend the speaker series. Those who attend five of the six speaker dates can apply for one of the two Fairgrounds Foundation scholarships offered at the end of the school year.
Sue Ebeler, Associate Dean for Undergraduate Academic Programs at UC Davis and Professor of Viticulture and Enology, will serve as the first speaker in the series. Additional speakers include Jerry Cirino of Cirino’s at Main Street, and Becky Bailey-Findley, Executive Director of California Fair Services Authority.

Treat Street Fun Facts: Did you know the Tall Pines Nursery School food booth serves delicious Round Table Pizza during the Fair? Choose from freshly baked cheese or pepperoni by the slice or you can buy an entire pizza for the family. The slices are huge, the pizzas are made fresh each day, and they even have a kids’ meal. Tall Pines also has their own seating area with shade and picnic tables. The pizza booth is their largest fundraiser, and all of the proceeds raised from the Fair fund the school curriculum, cooking with the kids, field trips, arts and craft projects, and a children-grown garden. Thank you, Tall Pines Nursery School, for all the love you put into the little learners in our community!
