Friends of the Fairgrounds: Easy Livin’ Kampers

Meet the Santa Rosa Easy Livin’ Kampers (ELKs). They recently spent time with us at the RV Park at the Nevada County Fairgrounds – and what fun they were! Photographer Dick Kuykendall took 250 photos, and said the group had such a good time and they can’t wait to return. Thanks for visiting us, and we can’t wait to welcome you back, ELKs.

Friends of the Fairgrounds: Elena

Meet Elena, who chose to have her senior portraits taken at the Nevada County Fairgrounds. Why the Fairgrounds? “It’s so beautiful and peaceful out here; and I love that my family has been part of these Fairgrounds for generations. I work here in the summer, my Mom works here year-round, my Grandpa used to be the CEO, and both my Grandpa and my Great Grandma are in the Fair’s Hall of Fame. It holds a special place in my heart!” We love you, Elena; and we think the Fairgrounds is a perfect spot for your senior portraits!

Friends of the Fairgrounds: Johanna and Merlin

Meet Johanna and Merlin, who walk the Fairgrounds every day, rain or shine! “We love it out here because we feel safe and it’s beautiful. Plus, it’s good exercise.”  They walk six times around the grounds, and Johanna burns about 500 calories a day from walking. Keep up the good work, Johanna; and thank you both for being friends of the Fairgrounds!

Friends of the Fairgrounds: Tim and Ruby

Meet Tim and Ruby, who walk the Fairgrounds every day. “We love the beauty of the Fairgrounds, all the friendly people we meet, and going to see the employees at the Fairgrounds office. Plus, Ruby loves to get treats and to see the kids at Tall Pines Nursery School.” Tim and Ruby have spent many, many years at the Fairgrounds, as Tim is married to now-retired Teacher Debby from Tall Pines. We love seeing you out here, Tim and Ruby!!

Friends of the Fairgrounds: Linda, Ronda, Vicky and David

Meet Linda, Ronda, Vicky and David.  These three sisters (and David, who is married to Ronda) walk the Fairgrounds every day, and “enjoy the sunshine, the green grass, the fresh air, the tall trees, and getting their “steps” in.” They do three to four times around, and it’s been beneficial to their health (Linda has overcome diabetes and Vicky is healthy after a heart attack).   Says Ronda, “I love them too much to lose them, so I walk to support them.”  We’re so glad you’re out here, and thanks for being an inspiration to all of us!
