Sheep Committees Work Together on Concrete Project

The Darke County Junior Fair Sheep and the Darke County Sheep Open Class Committees are working together on major improvements to the Sheep Barn located on the fairgrounds. The first long-term improvement is to add a concrete floor to the entire building. This project will be a great enhancement to the Sheep Barn by providing a smooth walking surface (handicap accessible and less hazardous), eliminating dust and provide a much better exhibition area for not only the Junior Fair and Open Class exhibitors but the general fairgoers visiting the barn.

The concrete project has been approved by the Darke County Fairboard; however, it will be the responsibility of the committees to fund the project. Their goal is to raise the funds by May 1st in order to have the project completed for the 2013 Great Darke County Fair. If this date is not achieved, the project will continue and completion date will be for the 2014 fair.

Thanks to generous sponsors, they are on our way to reaching their goal. However, they are still looking for donations in any amount. Recognition will be displayed in the barn for all donors, however, donors making contributions in the amount of $1,000 or more will be given special recognition of their sponsorship for the next ten years.

Interested parties that would like to make a donation can send their donations to Darke County Sheep Barn Improvement, Amy Hanes, Committee Treasurer, 9136 Stoner Rd., Union City, OH 45390 by May 1st if possible. Additional questions can be directed to Josh Hanes (937-459-2475) or Chuck Willcox (937-997-2265) Evening calls preferred.

The committee appreciates all the donors for partnering with them as their generosity is a long-term investment in the Junior Fair and Open Class Sheep exhibitors.
