On November 6, it is time to exercise our right to vote. Locally, those of us who head to the polls will see a ballot from Antelope County Ag Society slightly increasing the levy, but more importantly, releasing restricted funds. By releasing restricted funds, this will free up capital for much needed future projects and for simply paying bills associated with the fair.
As it stands now, restricted funds can only be used to improve existing property. Our Ag Society Board members volunteer their time and manage resources to ensure a quality county fair and support Antelope County 4-H. We’ve seen the number of youth involved in 4-H grow from 115 to over 300 in the last 5 years and this measure will help support these growing numbers. As a 4-H Leader and 4-H Council Treasurer, I encourage you to vote FOR this measure releasing restricted funds to support Antelope County Fair and our local 4-H program.
