The Putnam County fair board is still trying to raise money to make repairs to the facility. WLIO-TV in Lima reports there is still time to reach the $50,000 goal. The fair board has turned in paperwork for a grant, and it has been accepted. Now they just need to raise the needed money to get matching funds from the state.
Fair council secretary Peg Kruse tells the TV station $14,000 has been raised so far. They have until the end of the month to raise the rest of the money. Kruse added that if they don’t get the full amount they’ll still do a partial repair project. You can donate money by calling (419)523-4628.
Rain damage in 2015 resulted in damage to the fairgrounds.
