Realtor Michelle Anders opts for a gas-powered blower to clear the sidewalk in front of the new multi-purpose building on the Madison County Fairgrounds on Wednesday. She and other realtors spent the cloudy morning of their Realtor Care Day planting flowers, mulching and applying a weed deterring chemical to the flower bed. Other volunteers also painted the interior of the octagonal-shaped ticket booth at the main entrance, while Kenny Love and associate Jeff Stought installed vinyl siding to the exterior. The fairgrounds was selected as this year’s community service project by the Madison County Area Realty Association.
