(Neb.)-Tribute To Welcome Visitors To Nebraska State Fair
(Grand Island)-The Nebraska State Fair has erected a tribute to volunteers in front of the new Nebraska Building. According to State Fair executive director Joseph McDermott, “The design of the tribute is both colorful and fun to reflect the attitudes of our volunteers."
Grand Island Chamber of Commerce president Cindy Johnson said, “As the lead organization of the State Fair Volunteer Program, we’re delighted that the State Fair and Foundation are showing their gratitude with this tribute to the volunteers. The Grand Island community and central Nebraska’s support for the State Fair is demonstrated by their willingness to invest their time to ensure fairgoers have a wonderful experience. We believe visitors attending the fair will very likely view Grand Island as a place to live, work, shop, attend college, or start a business.”
The first two inductees will be announced during opening ceremonies beginning at 10am on Friday, August 22. On the orange panel of the tribute, individual volunteers who have given 300 hours or more are listed. On the green panel, corporate volunteers, or those companies that volunteer with their staff will be listed.
