County fair has volunteers to thank for success

The popular Thurston County Fair was alive and well this weekend, thanks to many new volunteers and fair supporters. Declining revenues had caused financial problems since 2008, but greater community support this year enabled the fair to renovate its facilities and expand its offerings without any additional county funding. Friday was Military Appreciation Day, which took on special meeting this year because members of the Washington National Guard repaired many of the fairgroundâ™s aging structures.
