VAN WERT — The Van Wert County Agricultural Society has established a new scholarship fund for county students pursuing post-secondary education to obtain a degree in an agricultural major. The new fund is for those students who have participated in the Van Wert County Junior Fair.
On Feb. 24, the Van Wert Agricultural Society set up the “Future Ag Leader Scholarship Fund” with The Van Wert County Foundation.
The new fund is also receiving a generous donation from a local resident, Bob Motycka from Meadow Lane Farm. He will plant a tree at the fairgrounds for each donation given to the new scholarship fund through the Foundation.
To order a Scholarship Tree from Meadow Lane Farm, visit their website: www.scholarshiptrees.com.
The Fair Board has scheduled an initial fundraising event on Saturday to kick off the new scholarship fund. A “Cabin Fever” evening concert and dance at the Junior Fair Building will feature three bands; ”Kill the Rabbit” and “Endever” of Van Wert and “Soft and Heavy” from Fort Wayne. These bands will play a wide variety of music for all ages and for a variety of dancing. The Cabin Fever concert will start at 8 p.m. in the Junior Fair Building. Admission is $5. Picnic-style food will be available for purchase. Anyone wishing to donate to the Future Ag Leader Scholarship Fund should make checks payable to The Van Wert County Foundation, 138 E. Main St., Van Wert, Ohio 45891.
