Rotarians Work to Beautify Nevada County Fairgrounds

With the Nevada County Fairgrounds facing significant funding cuts from the state, Nevada County’s five Rotary clubs on Saturday worked to make a difference.
More than 200 Rotarians and others, representing all five Nevada County Rotary Clubs, gathered for a joint work party in what is believed to be the largest one-day community project ever conducted in Nevada County.
The volunteers rebuilt benches and shade structures, re-roofed a building, re-striped a parking lot, painted several buildings and fences and raked and cleaned large sections of the fairgrounds.
Sandy Woods, CEO of the Nevada County Fair, said the community effort will help overcome a projected $250,000 shortfall this year. “We’re very grateful to the Rotary clubs,” said Woods. “This is a great example of the wonderful community we live in.”
The project marked Nevada County’s participation in the 7th Annual Rotarians at Work Day, an international same-day event marked by Rotary Clubs around the world, all taking part in local community service projects.
