The grant will be used to build permanent pens in the hog barn.

"The pens will make for a better day for the kids showing hogs and their parents," said board member Michael Jones. "Our goal is to make all the businesses who have supported the fair proud of what we have done here." He added that he looks forward to seeing everyone at this year's Polk County Fair held the third weekend in June, Thursday through Saturday.

The MFA Incorporated Charitable Foundation's mission is to assist rural communities by supporting organizations dedicated to education, youth, solving community problems and improving quality of life.
