On behalf of the Gold Country Fair and the Auburn 49er Lions Club, a big thanks to the Auburn Journal, editor Jenifer Gee and staff writer Sara Seyydin for their assistance with articles on the Project Gold Country Fairgrounds Cleanup. As you may or may not be aware, effective Jan. 1, the Gold Country Fair lost all State of California funding. With this in mind, the fairgrounds is totally dependent on its rentals to maintain the buildings and grounds. Subsequently, the Auburn 49er Lions Club is asking all individuals, service clubs or anyone who has ever used, rented or attended the Gold Country Fair to participate in a fairgrounds clean-up and small repair day, or to make a donation for supplies. The Gold Country Fair Cleanup Project is scheduled for 8 a.m. Saturday, June 9. We will meet at the old firehouse information booth for assignments. Please bring weed-eaters, tree trimmers, rakes, pitchforks, etc. Thank you. Ray Arnold, Auburn
