A note from the Fair Board…

Well it’s been quite a year for all of us in Washington County. It will be fun to see where we are on the new Show and Sale Barn when it comes fair time. As this book goes to print, we’ve just received the OK to start building the new barn.

The new Show and Sale Barn will be a R&M Steel building with some great features. First, it is bigger! There will be nice ADA access and places for wheelchair seating. The bleachers will be easier to access for everyone. It will be located in the same spot as the old barn. There will be more doors, better lighting, better sound system, and because its insulated, cooler.

We would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone involved in the “rebuild”. The Washington County Commissioners were our true partners in this project; offering advise and help whenever they could. The Washington County Road and Bridge Crew is always willing to help; not just during tough times, like retrieving items from under the collapsed barn, but all year long. The contractors involved in rebuilding the barn are going above and beyond normal measures to make sure we have the barn by fair. And lastly, R&M Steel, for all of the help designing this great barn and for the donation of materials in the barn.

Thank you!
