Congratulaions, Myra Davies

What fun it was to surprise Myra Davies at Nevada County Resource Conservation District’s dinner last night with the news that she has been selected by the Nevada County Fairgrounds Board as the 2018 Nevada County Fair Hall of Fame inductee.  The honor is given to those who have provided long-term service and dedication to the Nevada County Fair, and Myra has provided decades of support to youth in agriculture as a leader and mentor. We’ll be sharing more about Myra and the many reasons she was chosen; but right now we just want to say congratulations, Myra!

RV Park March Promotion

RVing in the winter? You bet! Our February promotion was so popular that we’re extending it. During the month of March, if you stay two consecutive nights at the RV Park at the Nevada County Fairgrounds, we’ll give you the third night free!  We are nestled among hundreds of tall pines trees, and located near the historic towns of Grass Valley and Nevada City. We are in close proximity to unique shopping and restaurants, nature trails, and wineries. We are also within driving distance to Truckee, Lake Tahoe, and Sacramento, and about an hour from major ski resorts. To take advantage of this special, call the RV Park Office at (530) 273-6217 and give the code MARCHCAMP. No online reservations accepted for this promotion. Time to plan your next adventure!

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!
