Marshall-Putnam Fairgrounds seeks votes to win grant for facelift project

HENRY — The Marshall-Putnam Fairgrounds is one of 15 finalists in Grinnell Mutual’s Fairground Facelift initiative. It was chosen from among 143 submissions.

With votes from Facebook fans, Marshall-Putnam Fairgrounds’ project could receive a grant of up to $3,000 to help make it happen.

The project, “Art Hall Renovation,” will install new doors to protect exhibits as part of the 100th anniversary renovation.
