The Granholm Family Named Fair Family of the Year

The Danny Granholm Family of Grass Valley has been named the 2011 Family of the Year by the Nevada County Fair’s Board of Directors. The Board chose the Granholm Family because of their ongoing participation in the Nevada County Fair and their commitment and efforts in supporting Nevada County agricultural youth programs. Danny Granholm says he is honored.

“Since we’ve been involved in helping with the kids and helping out at the fair, that’s a pretty finely tuned machine that runs out there and it takes a lot of people to be considered as one of those people is a pretty big honor.”

For the past eight years, Katie and Danny have been active in youth agriculture programs. Their children, Ben and Kaycee, have also been actively involved in the Fair for many years. Both began exhibiting animals about eight years ago. At the 2011 Fair, Kaycee will show sheep, and Ben will exhibit a hog. The Granhom Family will be honored at opening ceremonies of the Nevada County Fair, which runs August 10 – 14.  They will receive a Fair package of tickets, as well a family portrait created by Shaffers Originals of Grass Valley.
