Grinnell Mutual is accepting submissions for its 2019 Fairground Facelift promotion, a project that helps local fairgrounds in 14 states in which the company offers coverage to improve their facilities. The campaign offers five grants totaling $7,000 to county fairgrounds to help make a lasting impact for the fairground and the people who use it. Votes on Grinnell Mutual’s Facebook page will determine the winners. “We understand the importance of the fairgrounds in local communities as people come together for events and activities,” said Barb Baker, the company’s director of advertising and community relations. “The Fairground Facelift is Grinnell Mutual’s way to honor the impact local fairgrounds have, and to recognize the need to maintain those facilities.” Grinnell Mutual will announce 15 finalists and open public voting on Facebook on Aug. 29 at noon. Facebook fans can vote once per day per project. For more information, click here.
