The Greene County Fair is set to present a check for $4,000 to “Greene Giving” and the Greene County Community Fund for those affected by the Memorial Day tornadoes.

A dollar from each admission on Saturday, Aug. 3, and a dollar from every ride wrist band sold that day went to the fair’s #GreeneStrong campaign.

“With those still impacted by the tornadoes and no longer front-page news, we sometimes forget there are still people struggling to recover and get back to some normalcy,” Dan Bullen, a director of the Greene County Agricultural Society, said in a press release.

The fair partnered with Triple Treat Shows in the fundraisers.
