      Putnam County Fairground needs votes to win a facelift

      Grinnell Mutual is inviting the public to vote for its favorite project on its Front Porch Facebook page.

      Putnam County Fairground in Unionville is one of ten finalists competing for a fairground facelift, sponsored by Grinnell Mutual Reinsurance Company.

      Grinnell Mutual has invited the public to vote for its favorite project on its Front Porch Facebook page.

      With the help of fans, Grinnell Mutual plans to distribute a total of $3,500 between three of these fairgrounds.

      ??We have generous people right here in our community who have offered that if we do win, whatever finances we win, they've agreed to match that. That??s our little nice perk about it,?? said Putnam County Board Member, Anna Watt.

      If selected, the Putnam County Fairground will receive a fairground facelift grant to cover the currently open-sided sheep and cattle barns with metal. The new covering will protect the livestock from sun, rain and wind.

      Voting ends on May 26th.
