Donations sought for Silvana Fair

SILVANA – Silvana Fair Board members are planning and seeking donated items for their annual auction to be held March 9 in the Viking Hall at 1331 Pioneer Highway.

The auction is the main fundraiser for the 72nd annual fair scheduled for July 27. The family oriented fair celebrates community spirit with exhibits, live music, food and vendors, while enabling local youth to practice showing their animals and livestock before judges ahead of larger fairs. Admission is free, and so is parking.

Members will be soliciting merchants for donations. To make a donation of new items, visit www.silvanafair.com. For more information or to volunteer, call 360-618-2076, 360-652-6862 or email info@silvanafair.com.
