New director appointed to fair board
Kate West of the Lake Almanor/Chester region was appointed to the Plumas-Sierra County Fair governing board of directors at the Board of Supervisors meeting Dec. 11.
“I have always loved the fair and the connection it makes with community, lost arts like canning, country life through 4-H and history in general,” West said. Her term runs for three years.
Roller-skating may come to Serpilio Hall at the fairgrounds soon, manager John Steffanic said Dec. 10.
Steffanic is working with a private party on a revenue sharing plan to provide rental skates to customers at least once a month.
The Eta Alpha 37th annual Holiday Craft Faire, held at Serpilio Hall on Saturday, Dec. 8, sold out all of its booths and went smoothly, Steffanic said.
The sorority raised funds for its scholarship program at the annual event.
The fair board is still soliciting ideas for the 2013 fair theme. To learn more, visit plumas-sierracountyfair.net or call 283-6272.
The fairgrounds’ winter hours are Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and closed Friday through Sunday.
Next year’s fair is in the planning stages already, Steffanic reported. He said he will update the board next month when the board meets Jan. 24 at 4 p.m.
