Continuing Barta's legacy

Just over a year after losing his battle with cancer, the late Andy Barta continues to have a positive impact in Kewaunee County. Attendees to last year’s Kewaunee County Fair saw Andy’s name memorialized on boards used to direct animals during the hog show. Recently, the Kewaunee County Board accepted a donation on behalf of his parents, Jerry and Tammy Barta, from the Rio Creek Feed Mill, Forest Construction, and the Kewaunee County Farm Technology Days Committee to construct a show ring pavilion at the fairgrounds in Luxemburg in his honor. His wife Allison continues to build the Andy Barta Legacy Charitable Foundation, which supports other families in Kewaunee County directly affected by cancer. Balancing her career and raising four children with the foundation’s work, she is proud of the positive impact the organization has had in its short time.

The Andy Barta Legacy Charitable Fund has donated over $10,000 to Kewaunee County families since its inception.
