Fairgrounds sign freshened


Heritage Cooperative volunteers, Dave Monnin, top, and John Arthur, apply green paint — in a shade close to a popular tractor brand — to the sign at the Elm Street entrance to the Madison County Fairgrounds. The Sheehys of Custom Sign Co. of Columbus donated new “skins” for the sign and Marshall Electric repaired the lighting. The plan calls for it eventually to be replaced with a digital sign, which will advertise events being held there. A fund has been started for that project, said Bob Richardson, marketing representative for the ag society. To donate, contact Richardson at the fair office: 740-852-1654. The fair begins Sunday, July 12.
