Deadline approaching for Most Admired Senior Citizen

ELLSWORTH — Nominations for Pierce County's Most Admired Senior Citizen are due July 21. An entry form and copy of the rules can be obtained by calling the Pierce County Fair Office at 715-273-6874 or by visiting the fair website at and click on "Most Admired Senior Citizen."

This free event is not a popularity contest, beauty pageant or celebrity sweepstakes. It is, however, a chance for older adults to receive the recognition they deserve. Winners will be selected on the basis of current volunteer activity, rather than past accomplishments.

The three most admired senior citizen winners will be announced at 10 a.m. Friday, Aug. 11, at a special program during the Pierce County Fair in the picnic shelter.

Mail your nomination by July 21 to: Pierce County Fair, Attn: Ann M. Webb, 364 N. Maple — Box 922, Ellsworth, WI 54011.
