Deadline approaching for Most Admired Senior Citizen

ELLSWORTH -- The Pierce County Fair Office announced back in June that “The Pierce County Fair’s Most Admired Senior Citizen” event will continue to be in the fair’s lineup due to its success in the past .

So now time is ticking away – the nomination deadline is Friday, July 18, (postmarked). 

An entry form can be obtained by calling the Fair Office at 715-273-6874 or by 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 and have that special friend or relative sign the statement at the end of the entry.

According to Fair Coordinator Ann Webb, this free event is not a popularity contest, beauty pageant or celebrity sweepstakes.  She says it’s a chance for older adults to receive the recognition they deserve. 

Winners will be selected on the basis of current volunteer activity, rather than past accomplishments.

The three most admired senior citizen winners will be announced at 10 a.m. Friday, Aug 8, at a special program during the Pierce County Fair in the picnic shelter.

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