Foundation presents grant to fairgrounds
The New Richmond Area Community Foundation recently presented the Friends of the St. Croix County Fairgrounds with a $500 grant during its next round of grants.
The grant funds will be used to support the construction of Dairy Barn #2, which will be used for the annual St. Croix County Fair and other events.
According to Chris Libby, president of the friends group, the barn is expected to be up and in use by the 2013 Fair in July.
The friends group raised funds and constructed a new dairy barn a few years ago and immediately began discussions about a second barn. The planned facility will replace aging buildings at the fairgrounds in Glenwood City.
