Proposals sought for Junior Fair capital improvements

The Adams County 4-H Advisory Committee is seeking proposals for needed Junior Fair capital improvements at the Adams County Fairgrounds. Completed proposals must be submitted to the Extension Office on or before Nov. 1 for consideration for approval for 2016. Additional information and the proposal form may be found on the OSU Extension Adams County website at http://adams.osu.edu/program-areas/4-h-youth-development/policies-and-forms.

Funds for approved Junior Fair capital improvements come from the food booth operated during the fair by the 4-H Advisory Committee. In the past, proceeds from this food booth, operated first by the Adams County Pork Producers and then by the Adams County Cattlemen’s Association, have helped pay for fair improvements such as the Hog Barn and the Youth Show Arena. Proceeds are now dedicated to making necessary short-term capital improvements. In recent years, funds have helped re-model the old show arena, turning it into a Sheep Barn, provide lighting in the back horse arena, make necessary improvements to the electric in the Small Animal barns and across the fairgrounds, and assist in funding the Cattlemen’s recent addition to the Show Arena.

A Junior Fair Capital Improvements Committee will review and approve the proposals. The committee is composed of two members each from the Adams County 4-H Advisory Committee, the Adams County Junior Fair Board, and the Adams County Agricultural Society (Senior Fair Board).

The Committee will not approve funding for routine repair and maintenance of existing facilities at the fairgrounds, nor will they approve funds towards retiring Agricultural Society debt. Instead, all food booth proceeds will be used for projects that add something to the fairgrounds and its facilities that did not exist before and projects that benefit Junior Fair programs and exhibitors. All projects funded by the Committee will become assets of the Adams County Agricultural Society upon completion.

Specific proposals, including a completed application with attached estimates and plans, are due to OSU Extension Adams County on or before Nov. 1. Proposals may be submitted by 4-H clubs or FFA chapters, 4-H-affiliated groups and committees, or other organized community groups or individuals interested in the future of Adams County youth and the Adams County Junior Fair.

For more information about the request for proposals from the Junior Fair Capital Improvements Committee, contact Carolyn L. Belczyk, Extension Educator, OSU Extension Adams County, at 937.544.2339 or via email at belczyk.1@osu.edu.
