Crook County Fairgrounds Gets Facebook Grant


Crook County Fair officials are shining brightly; or they will be real soon. Facebook has granted almost $16,000 to the fairgrounds to complete the Indoor Arena Lighting Project. Crook County Fair Board Chair Larry Smith says they were thrilled to get the notice that they will receive part of the Facebook Local Grant Program, and the lighting planned will be very energy-efficient: "One of the major impacts on our budget at the Fairgrounds is the utilities and hopefully with the new technology and the lighting, the energy savings should save us somewhere in the neighborhood in excess of $9000 a year in that particular facility." Smith says as part of the project, they are also accepting $300 contributions from the community to purchase individual indoor lights.  There are 70 available. When you donate, you name will be placed on a plaque that will be on permanent display inside the arena.  The arena gets over 125,000 visitors each year.
