As part of the 2021 grant distributions for the Lennox Area Community Fund (LACF), a $5000 grant was awarded to the Lincoln County Fairgrounds Foundation. The LACF was able to award $12,300 to area organizations to help fund 12 different projects. These projects exemplify the variety of projects that the LACF help to fund each year.
The LACF, which began in 2004, is an endowment fund created to benefit the Lennox, Chancellor and Worthing communities by pooling the generosity of donors to fund grants to charitable and civic causes.
“We are so excited to receive the grant from the Lennox Area Community Fund,” said Fairgrounds committee member Kristi Sweeter. “It will be used toward building a showring at the Lincoln County 4-H grounds.”
As readers may know, the Lincoln County 4-H grounds are located at the former Goeman Auction Pavilion located north of Lennox on Highway 17. Dirt work has been done for the new show ring.
