2019 Hall of Fame: Bill Mitchell

What fun it was to surprise Bill Mitchell at Thursday’s Fairgrounds staff meeting with the news that he has been selected by the Nevada County Fairgrounds Board as a 2019 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 Fairgrounds. Bill, whom we fondly refer to as “Mitchell,” has provided countless hours (years!) of volunteer service to the Fairgrounds and we are a better place because of him. We’ll be sharing more about Bill later and the many reasons he was chosen; but right now we just want to say – congratulations, Mitchell!
