            As a way to rebuild or restore the ticket booth at the Monroe County Fair ground, we are selling commemorative bricks. Each brick can have up to 3 lines of script or names and will be place around the ticket booth as a permanent reminder of those who helped with the important work.

                            

 

          A tax deductible contribution of $100 would be a great blessing to the work. We will spend it on material and do the labor free. Please consider this a reasonable service and help finish the work that has been started. Greater or smaller amounts are also greatly appreciated.                      

                  

 

          In 2005, the Monroe County Historical Society and the Fair Board have joined forces to move the ticket booth back away from SR 26 and put it on a new concrete 20 x 20 foundation. A new floor has been constructed and some new siding and trim are already in place. Total cost to date has been $2600 and all materials are paid. The funds came from Citizens National Bank, Dennis Miller Const. and contributions given at the Know Show for maps sold. In addition, Clarence Reich has made the 1st individual contribution. Thank you for your contributions. True Value Hardware will furnish all material at their cost. This will save a lot of money.

         

 

          Estimated cost for the total project is $15,000. This will include a much needed new roof and overhang as well as new wood in many other places. At the present time we plan to use slate from an old house to keep the roof as near original as possible.

                                     

 

          Can you help us? Will you help us do the work or pay the material costs? If you will, please see Bob Indermuhle at the Historical Society building or contact the MCHS or Fair Board as soon as possible. Our address is MCHS P.O. Box 538 Home Ave. Woodsfield, Oh 43793. Our phone is 740 472 1933.
