Board needs to put forth effort
August 6, 2020
Congratulations to Melissa Cady, Sanders County Fair Manager, and the Sanders County Fair Board.
It only took seven months and an email from Jason Johnson, the investigations supervisor for the Montana Gambling Control West District to get you to advertise (if you can call a Facebook post that) and to set up a new time for the raffle drawing that was to help raise money for the Christmas lights display at the fairgrounds.
Even though the Sanders County Fair Board members voted on the raffle in January(?) and tickets went on sell February 6 and the drawing was to be held during Plains Day, June 6, the first advertisement placed by Ms. Cady was July 29.
And please folks, enough with the “COVID-19 excuses.”
The coronavirus has a lot of symptoms but as far as I can ascertain they don’t include ineptness.
Please support the Plains Lions Club & the Plains/Paradise Rural Fire Departments auction September 19…. They at least are promoting their auction.
Life lesson I learned from this experience is do NOT donate to organizations that have boards and managers that want something but won’t put the effort into making it happen.
