The May Fair Event & Sale will be held Saturday, May 7, at the St. Croix County Fair Grounds/Fairplex in Glenwood City. Gates will open for inspection of auction items at 4 p.m., with the formal program starting at 5 p.m.

The May Fair Event & Sale is sponsored by The Friends of the St. Croix County Fairplex in cooperation with the St. Croix County 4-H Dairy Committee, and will be held in the Commercial Building with auxiliary heat provided.

A free will offering ham and deli oven chicken dinner will be catered by Ruth Hurtgen. Additionally there will be free milk and twenty-five-cent ice cream cones provided while supplies last.

Entertainment will feature 4-H Talent Explosion Acts by the Roberts Ribbon Reapers, Hudson Trailblazers and Hammond True Blue 4-H clubs as well as live concertina music by Bruce Libby, plus a live auction.

There will be a nickel scramble for youngsters.

The silent and live auctions will feature everything from top cow genetics, club calves and springing heifers to restaurant and salon packages. Hanging flower baskets will also be offered.

The purpose of the event is to raise funds for the renovations of the generations capital fund campaign. Successful completion of the campaign will build four new buildings for the fair. Great progress has already been made with the first of two dairy barns currently being erected for this year's fair. All funds raised at the event will be directed towards completing construction of Dairy Barn #1.
