The days of dealing with a non-air conditioned Expo Building at the Madison County Fair may soon be over. The hospital in Highland has been torn down, so their air conditioning unit is going to be repurposed at the fairgrounds, which is just a couple of miles away. But, the Madison County Fair Board President Amy Rogier says they can’t do it without your help.
They are in the last couple of days of a campaign on Facebook in which you can vote for your favorite project. She says the building is large enough to host a variety of events, but is too hot to do so comfortably without air conditioning.
