Local farmer supports Saline County Fair Association

Monday, April 7, 2014

Saline County farmer Kenny Lewis has directed a $2,500 donation to the Saline County Fair Association. Funded by America's Farmers Grow Communities, the donation will help the group upgrade their fairgrounds. Thanks to the support of farmers across the country, more than $3.2 million is being directed to nonprofits in 1,289 counties in 39 states.

"The Saline County Fair Association supports a variety of organizations in our community," Lewis said. "They continue to do good work and help a lot of people in our community."

America's Farmers Grow Communities works directly with farmers to support nonprofit organizations like the Saline County Fair Association, who are doing important work in their communities. The program offers farmers the chance to win $2,500, which is then donated to the farmer's nonprofit of choice.
