Fair Brings Big Money into Local Community

It was decided last week that the 2013 Washington Town and Country Fair brought 1 point 4 million dollars into the local community. According to Jennifer Giesike, director of the Washington chamber of Commerce, local business alone benefited from the fair to the tune of 550 thousand 500 dollars. On top of the economic impact felt by local businesses, local service organizations like the lions club and rotary club saw 129 thousand dollars from the 5 day event that is held every year at the Washington Fairgrounds. The Blue Ribbon auction, which allows people to purchase locally raised livestock, brought in 306 thousand dollars.
