Attendance and interest, along with the Sponsorship Program, all continue to make the Wright County District Junior Fair one of the best in North Central Iowa. Much was accomplished in the past year, with the new combination show arena and livestock barns building becoming reality and just in time for the 2013 fair. The hard-working fair board is justifiably proud of their new centerpiece facility, but also don’t intend to sit back and rest on their laurels as they continue to make this fair the best it can be.
“Our fair is YOUR fair, and we can’t do it without all of you,” was fair manger Tricia Rosendahl’s message to those attending the annual meeting in November. “Our capital campaign for the new building had a goal of $250,000 in grants and private support, and we ended up raising over $527,000 which allowed us to add in some extras. Our sponsorship program raised just over $50,000, for a 10-year grand total of over $400,000. We are extremely grateful, and thrilled, for all of this generous support to benefit the 4-H and FFA youth of Wright County.”
