McLean County Fair received a $3,000 Facility Upgrade Grant from the Compeer Financial Fund for Rural America. The grant funds were used to improve lighting at the horse arena on the fairgrounds.

Compeer Financial awarded a total of 64 grants totaling $180,000 to support fairground enhancement projects at local and county fairs in Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin this year. 

“Compeer Financial proudly supports local and county fairs across our Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin territory, recognizing the important role they play in youth development, and in celebrating agricultural heritage and rural life,” said John Monson, chair of Compeer Financial’s
Fund for Rural America.

County fairs enhance rural communities by bringing people of all ages together to learn and experience agriculture. The grant program is designed to help fund upgrades and repairs of fairgrounds and facilities so fairs can continue to offer the best possible experience to fair-goers year after year.
