This Saturday more than 200 volunteers have signed up to help give the fairgrounds a major spring cleaning.
From tree pruning and gardening, rock removal and painting, cleaning inside and outside the buildings and barns, there is something for every volunteer to do, fair manager John Steffanic told the board at its March 27 meeting.
The U.S. Forest Service, contractors, 4-H clubs, school groups, service organizations, locksmiths and fair aficionados from across the county have answered the call for help.
Volunteers will begin working at 8 a.m. and continue throughout the day. A barbecue lunch will be provided for all volunteer workers.
Even if you haven’t signed up, Steffanic said, you can show up at the gate between 8 and 11 a.m. and will be put to work.
Plans for the Plumas-Sierra County Fair are moving right along, Steffanic reported.
Entertainment; vendors; bull-riding; a date night featuring supervisor Jon Kennedy as chef; animal, art and food exhibits; and the iconic carnival will round out the popular event.
Special days for seniors, kids and pay-what-you-can will be implemented again, as they were last year.
The fair foundation has sent off its paperwork to become a nonprofit organization, director Thelma Olsen reported. Once the foundation receives its nonprofit status, tax-deductible donations can be accepted. The group will raise funds to support efforts at the fairgrounds.
