When you think about Indiana’s small towns and rural areas, many good things spring to mind. From churches, to schools, to the local fair. Neighbors talk and work together, and they look out for one another. Two great examples of that spirit are the 4-H programs that teach important skills and instill values in young people, and the electric power cooperative that supply safe, reliable power to farms and neighborhoods.
That connection explains the close relationship between Bartholomew County REMC and the Bartholomew County 4-H Fair, said BCREMC Vice President of Communications, Marty Lasure. “Both organizations emphasize service and cooperation. The same values that are at the heart of 4-H activities are what guides our board of directors and employees to serve our members’ needs.”
So it should come as no surprise that BCREMC has long been a strong supporter of our area’s 4-H fair. A substantial donation to support the remodeling of the Family Arts Building was made at the end of 2020 and the improvements were completed this spring. “A core value of Bartholomew County REMC is our commitment to the community. This was our way of acknowledging that we support what the fairgrounds offers our community and the participating youth in 4-H,” stated Lasure.
BCREMC members will receive a $75 discount to rent the newly remodeled Family Arts Building located at the fairgrounds. Call the fair office at 812-372-6133 to rent the building.
