THE DARKE COUNTY AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY BOARD OF DIRECTORS HELD ITS FEBRUARY MEETING WEDNESDAY EVENING.  AMONG THE AGENDA ITEMS APPROVED WAS A CONTRACT WITH BENDER ELECTRIC, AND THE PURCHASE OF A GRASSHOPPER FOR THE FAIRGROUNDS, AND A CONTRACT FOR THE FAIR VET, WORTH $5,500-DOLLARS.  BOARD MEMBERS AND THE AUDIENCE HEARD A ZOOM PRESENTATION ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF A DOOR DASH TYPE OF BUSINESS THEY’RE CALLING “FAIR DASH” – COMING TO THE GREAT DARKE COUNTY FAIR EITHER THIS YEAR OR IN 2025.  BASICALLY HOW IT WOULD WORK IS THAT CAMPERS COULD ORDER FOOD AND DRINKS FROM PARTICIPATING VENDORS AND THEIR ORDER WOULD BE DELIVERED TO WHEREVER THEY ARE ON THE FAIRGROUNDS. NO DELIVERIES WOULD BE MADE OUTSIDE THE DARKE COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS PROPERTY. THERE ARE STILL SEVERAL DETAILS THAT HAVE TO BE WORKED OUT.  ALSO GUN RAFFLE TICKETS ARE BEING SOLD IN THE DARKE COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS OFFICE.  A WORK SESSION WILL BE SCHEDULED TO DISCUSS THE 2024 BUDGET.  CALL THE FAIRGROUNDS OFFICE AT: 937-548-5044, OR VISIT THEIR WEBSITE: WWW.DARKECOUNTYFAIR.COM FOR INFORMATION ON ORDERING CONCERT TICKETS, AND OTHER DETAILS ABOUT UPCOMING EVENTS, INCLUDING THIS YEAR’S GREAT DARKE COUNTY FAIR.
