The 2014 Contra Costa County Fair is just a month away, and staff is busy getting the grounds ready for its annual four-day event.
This year, the Fair staff was given a hand by hundreds of volunteers.
The following information is from the Contra Costa County Fair:
The Mormon Helping Hands came together with fair staff to help prepare for the upcoming fair, which runs May 29th -June 1st.
These amazing volunteers, both young and old, worked on many projects throughout the fairgrounds.
Public safety projects included painting midway curbs, repairing the pavilion stage, repairing a walkover bridge, fence repairs, street light replacements, and the construction of a new hand washing station for the livestock barn. Projects benefiting our exhibit department included painting the livestock office, cleaning & assembling livestock animal pens, and cleaning still exhibit displays. Beautification projects such as planting flowers, cleaning the interior & exterior of the Agricultural Museum, litter removal, and tree trimming were done as well.
The Mormon Helping Hands were treated to a bbq lunch by the Fair staff in the park after a busy work day. Fair CEO, Robert Williamson said “The hard work, positive attitudes, and commitment to the community by Mormon Helping Hands has made it possible for the Fair to take on many projects that would have been impossible for our staff to complete otherwise. We are so thankful for what they did for us and we look forward to having all of our Fair patrons enjoy the many improvements that are a result of this partnership.”
