Friends of the Fair Garden and Park Update


What better way to celebrate the 175th anniversary of the Lenawee County Fair than to purchase a paver to be installed in the “Friends of the Fair Garden and Park” in time for fair week 2014? Whether you want to endorse your relationship to the fair, provide a memorial paver for another, or any other engraving you prefer, your addition to this area on the grounds will be wonderful! Anyone can become a permanent part of the Lenawee County Fairgrounds by supporting this Garden and Park that is located just west of the Dairy Barn.

Phases I and II of this project were completed by the 2013 fair dates. Initially that included landscaping, planting flowers & grasses, and fencing. Then the beautiful engraved pavers were put into place this past summer as a brick walkway to grace the garden setting. The tribute to long serving Fair Manager, Grant Swift was repositioned at the apex of the park. Stop by to see the many different engraved sentiments per each purchaser’s choice. Phase III for this year will include additional plantings, placement of additional pavers, and perhaps additional lighting.

FYI Pavers have to be ordered ahead of time for engraving and installation to take place in a timely manner. The deadline to order pavers for this year’s fair is June 1, 2014. Pavers are available in two sizes, 4 x 8 at a cost of $35 or two for $50; or 8 x 8 at a cost of $50. Order forms for the pavers may be downloaded from our website & returned to the fair office with payment. Contact the fair office @ 517-263-3007 for more information. We look forward to your perfectly personalized paver at your family’s happy place, the Lenawee County Fair.
