The 4-H Fair Association, along with Salamonie Mills and Central States Grain will visit with area farmers this fall to collect their tax deductible donations of grain. Mailers will be sent with pick up dates that are predetermined as harvest approaches. It is asked that fair board members be contacted if you are willing to donate grain on the designated dates. Grain not being picked up on the farm, can still be donated throughout the year at, Salamonie Mills facilities including: Warren, Simpson and Markle or at Central States Grain in care of the Huntington County 4-H Association. Proceeds from the first annual grain drive will be used for a variety of infrastructure projects at the Fair grounds for the upcoming 2013 4-H fair.
