Business support PA upgrades at Fairgrounds
Even though COVID-19 put a damper on the 2020 Pierce County Fair, that does not mean the Fair and Fairgrounds has not been busy getting ready for the 2021 Pierce County Fair. Without the 2020 Fair, extra time and attention has been given to multiple building improvements and fund raising for PA system upgrades in various barns.
Many individuals and businesses contributed to a much need PA sound system improvement in the Arena, Blue and Silver Barns on the Fairgrounds that will be completed in the spring of 2021. Pierce Pepin Cooperative Services through their customer Operation Round Up program gave the Pierce County Friends of the Fair a matching grant. Pierce County 4-H directed funds towards the project received in the America’s Farmers Grow Communities program from the Bayer Fund, awarded to local farmers, Tony & Marsha Shafer from Spring Valley and a donation from Compeer Financial. Donations were also received from John Galgowski, Pierce/Pepin Holstein Club, Pierce County Dairy Promotion and Boviteq along with 2021 funding from the Pierce County Fair and Fairgrounds.
Without the support of these great organizations and individuals, these many improvements to the fairgrounds would nothavebeenpossible. Thankyouallforyourcontinued support of the Pierce County Fair.
