Farmers interested in supporting the new Youth Center at the Louisa County Fairgrounds have convenient way to do so that will benefit the project now and the farmer at tax time. Arrangements have been made at Farmers Elevator in Wapello and Bieri Grain in Letts for farmers to donate corn and soy beans to support the project. Farmers simply designate a load of grain to be sold to benefit the youth center, the elevator sends a check to the project and a receipt is issued to farmer to claim the donation when preparing their taxes. Crops for the Louisa County Fair Youth Center is a way for area farm families to support a project that will benefit the agricultural community especially in terms of youth education and leadership development.
Construction of the Youth Center began in August and it is expected to be completed by next summer. The 7,680 square foot facility will be used for meetings, workshops, competitions, fair displays and social gatherings.
