Most Admired Senior Citizen deadline soon

The Pierce County Fair Office announced back in May that the addition of "The Pierce County Fair Most Admired Senior Citizen" last year was a great success and will again make an appearance at this year's Pierce County Fair - August 13-16.

However, time is ticking away - the nomination deadline is Friday, July 17.

To obtain an entry form and receive a copy of the rules call the Fair Office, 273-6874 or visit the fair Web site at: and click on Most Admired Senior Citizen.

Do you have a very special friend or relative who is over 60 years old? He or she could be one of Pierce County's most admired senior citizens. No matter what your age, you can nominate your favorite senior citizen. Just fill out an entry form as completely as you can. Then have that special friend or relative sign the statement at the end of the entry.

This free event is not a popularity contest, beauty pageant or celebrity sweepstakes. It is, however, a chance for older adults to receive the recognition they deserve. Winners will be selected on the basis of current activity, rather than past accomplishments.

The three most admired senior citizen winners will be announced at 10:30 a.m., Friday, August 14, at a special program at the Pierce County Fair in the Family Entertainment Tent.

Mail your nomination to: Pierce County Fair, Attn: Ann M. Webb, 364 N. Maple - Box 922, Ellsworth, WI 54011.
