Nevada County Fair’s Hall of Fame nominees now being accepted
Nominations are now being accepted for the 2006 inductees to the Nevada County Fair’s Hall of Fame.
“Recognizing outstanding service and dedication to Nevada County’s premier event, the Hall of Fame each year rewards exceptional commitment to the development and success of the Fair,” said Fair CEO Ed Scofield.
This is the 22nd year Hall of Fame recognitions will be given.
This year’s nomination deadline is May 1.
To nominate an individual anyone can write the candidate’s name and a brief summary of his or her contributions to the Fair or Fairgrounds. Previous Hall of Fame inductees have included Fair volunteers, exhibitors, and concessionaires.
In 2005 Ted Schaps was inducted into the Hall of Fame for his dedication to the Fair’s horse shows. Also selected last year were the David and Sharon Tobiassen Family, recognized for the entire family’s dedication to the Fair.
Nominations should be sent to Hall of Fame, Fairgrounds Office, P.O. Box 2687, Grass Valley CA 95945, or delivered to the Fairgrounds Office, 11228 McCourtney Road by the May 1 deadline. For more information on Hall of Fame nominations, call 273-6217.
