Thank You, Nevada County Fairgrounds Foundation!

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!

Congratulations to the Fairgrounds Foundation Scholarship Winners

Congratulations to Sam Patton and Bekah Nunez, 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. Sam graduated this year, is planning on attending Sierra College as an Agribusiness major, and exhibited cattle and vegetables at the 2016 Fair. Bekah also graduated this year, will attend CSU Chico (majoring in animal science), and exhibited a steer at the 2016 Fair. Both attended every speaker series event. Congratulations, Sam and Bekah!!

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!
