Some of the money spent at the Kewaunee County Fair in Luxemburg this weekend will have a larger impact beyond the event’s closing on Sunday. Organizations like the Dyckesville Lions, Algoma FFA Alumni Club, and Holy Rosary Church run the food booths along the midway at the fairgrounds. Over 90 percent of the funding for Algoma FFA Alumni Club activities comes from serving food all seven days of the fair. Member Paul Moede says the support they get at the fair helps them be a guardian angel for the community.
Blake Jauquet of Luxemburg has worked with his pigs for months, but will say goodbye to them as they enter the show ring one final time Saturday afternoon during the fair’s animal sale. Jauquet says the money earned will go towards his future college education.
The Kewaunee County Fair runs through Sunday afternoon.
