Co-op donates to fair
The St. Croix Electric Cooperative recently donated $24,000 to the St. Croix county Fairplex to help pay for the construction of a new dairy barn at the facility. The announcement came at the annual meeting on April 19. Observing its 75th anniversary, the co-op donation represents $1 for every former and current member of the co-op.
At the presentation were, from left, St. Croix Electric's Board Chair Bill Peavey, Gail Maier, Chris Libbey, St. Croix Electric's President and CEO Mark Pendergast and Terry Mitchell. Maier, Libbey and Mitchell are representatives of the St. Croix County Fair and Friends of the Fairplex.
A fundraiser will be held at the Fairplex on Saturday, May 12 at 5 p.m. A dinner, silent auction, raffle and entertainment are planned.
