Thompson-Thrift and Gibson Development have offered to purchase the Wabash Valley Fairgrounds by swapping a 111 acre piece of land for a 72 acre plot and giving the Fair Board $9.2 million.
The existing fairgrounds would be used to construct a new shopping center, which would be located a whole .15 miles away from Honey Creek Mall.
The new location would be out of the way for 4-Hers and business at the fair would suffer due to lack of traffic. They haven't considered the feelings of 4-H members (which I am) or parents. These are the people that would directly suffer from the change.
I ask you to sign this petition and save the fairgrounds for the youth.
