Grand Champion Supporter – Senator Sheila Harsdorf

On April 2, the Wisconsin Association of Fairs held their annual spring district meeting, hosted by the Dunn County Fair Board at the Whitetail Golf Course outside of Colfax.

During the course of the business meeting, Senator Sheila Harsdorf was presented with the 2013 Grand Champion Supporter of the Wisconsin Association of Fairs Award.  Senator Sheila Harsdorf has been a fair supporter for many years.  In fact, her family still shows at the Pierce County Fair annually.  During last year’s session, Sheila served as a member of the Joint Committee on Finance.  Senator Harsdorf was instrumental in getting a bill passed requesting additional funds for state aid.  State aid for fair premiums is a vital part of the fairs success and members of the Wisconsin Association of Fairs appreciates her additional support.  Senator Harsdorf expressed her appreciation for the award and her belief that fairs are a vital part of Wisconsin’s heritage and strong family values.

District II represents the northwestern part of Wisconsin including 18 different counties: Ashland, Barron, Bayfield, Buffalo, Burnett, Chippewa, Douglas, Dunn, Eau Claire, Jackson, Pepin, Pierce, Polk, Rusk, St. Croix, Sawyer, Trempealeau, and Washburn Counties which consists of 17 county fairs and one state fair.

The Wisconsin Association of Fairs would like to thank Sheila for her continued work and support of all of the Wisconsin Fairs.  To find out more information about the fairs in your area, check out the Wisconsin Association of Fairs website at
