Additional donations made to
county fair's grandstand project
LISBON - On Monday, the Columbiana County Fairboard announced two $50,000 gifts from the Richard F. Wilk Jr. family and the families behind Hanover Farms, the Zehentbauers, that moved the Columbiana County Fair's grandstand project closer to its goal of $900,000. The Wilk family gift will create a winner's circle where winners of any competition will be photographed and recognized. "My family has been blessed in many ways, and we are thrilled to be in a position to support the Columbiana County Fair," said Dick Wilk, a lifelong resident of Columbiana County who founded Specialty Ceramics Inc. and Refractory Specialties Inc. in the early 1990s. Both companies were sold in 2011, but he still manages them.
The Neil and Richard Zehentbauer families of Hanover Farms decided to name the 240-square foot press box that will sit atop the new grandstand. The family grew up attending and participating at the fair. "We have worked hard and been fortunate as a family, so we loved the idea of helping the fair achieve their goal of having the grandstand up in time for this year's fair," said Zehentbauer.
The fairboard razed the aging grandstand on Dec. 14, 2013. The new grandstand will seat 2,500, which is 1,100 more than the previous seating. "The new grandstand will allow us to think outside of the traditional box when it comes to entertainment and other activities, even outside of fair week," said John Wolf, fairboard president.
Fairboard members hope the community will continue to step forward with many more gifts, big or small, to help reach the goal. "The donations have ranged from $20 to $300,000. We are so grateful for the support, and we are in need of them all," said Tresa Unkefer, fairboard secretary. This year's fair is July 28-Aug. 3. For more information call 330-424-5531.
