Deadline approaching for Most Admired Senior Citizen

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 premier event of the summer -- the Pierce County Fair -- August 7-10.

However, time is ticking away, the nomination deadline is July 18.

So here's how you can make a nomination and receive a copy of the rules. An entry form can be obtained by calling the Fair Office, 273-6874, or visiting the fair website 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. on Friday, Aug. 8, at a special program at the Pierce County Fair in the Family Entertainment Tent.

Mail your nomination back to: Pierce County Fair, Attn: Ann M. Webb, 412 W. Kinne St., Box 922, Ellsworth, WI 54011.

Give that special senior citizen in your life the recognition they deserve.
