The new location is 30,000 square foot and provides quality equipment, service and parts to agriculture, as well as residential, commercial and light industrial customers. Northwest Tractor is a proud representative of John Deere and a supporting company to Findlay Implement, N. Ridge Rd., Findlay, Ohio. The business expresses pride in the people that it employs as well as gratitude in the good people that patronize this establishment.

“More Excitement Than EVER!” o t e m o c Wel

W

hat’s everyone so excited about? They’re excited about er... well, the excitement - the excitement coming to the Putnam County Fair, June 18-23. Indeed, “More excitement than EVER!” awaits in Ottawa triggered by a rejuvenated, reinvented, reinvigorated, exhilarating entertainment extravaganza! Yeah! That’s a mouthful. But it’s just a taste of “What’s cookin’?” at the 2012 fair - a virtual main course of enticing entertainment. Speaking of enticement, have you ever looked an elephant in the eye or the trunk for that matter? You can at the all new Elephant Encounter staged in a tropical setting. “Kids” of all ages are in for “tons of fun” as they get up close and perhaps personal with a 9000 pound magnificent monstrosity of a mammal. Meetings with the wild in the “wild” continue in the one-of-a-kind Jungle Island Petting Zoo. It really is a jungle in there! Confront exotic creatures of all species - some you’ve never heard of - and live to tell about it. You will have plenty to say! And there’s plenty more to excite at the 2012 Putnam County Fair. Grandstand entertainment will be nothing less than grand. Figure 8 Racing figures to be a big hit. Cars and trucks will be at high speed and on course or “off course” as the case may be. The demolition derbies promise “high impact” excitement of their own. Vehicles get crinkled and wrinkled. Drivers get jarred and jolted. It’s a virtual deluge of destruction! The Grandstand is transformed into a bandstand for the ever popular High School Band Spectacular prefaced by the annual tribute to our Armed Forces. Soldiers both past and present are saluted for their sacrifice and service in a devotional and emotional tribute to all Veterans. March on! You may have to defend yourself though when WAR Wrestling comes back to town. This brand of “Action at the Arches” doesn’t just talk smack, it delivers smack! Get up close but stay back! The excitement is nonstop. You’ll have to stop and see The Caboodlestoppers. Watch them strolling on the midway or catch their act on the main stage. They’ll catch your attention with headturning, jaw-dropping,sky high crazy, wildly wacky out-ofthis world entertainment. It’s a gusher of goofy fun for all! Good tunes and great times will flow from the Entertainment Tent. Gyrate to the vibes of Nashville Crush, Polly Mae, Bekah Bradley and more! While the music shakes up the airways, we’ll light up the skyways. All new fireworks punctuate the fair with a bold exclamation point. Experience the low-profile, highly dynamic illustrious illumination. You have to see ‘em to believe ‘em! And you have to see us to see them... these fireworks are only visible on the fairgrounds! Get on the grounds and into “More excitement than EVER!” at the 2012 Putnam County Fair, June 18-23 in Ottawa. The Arches call one and all! Don Verhoff, President For the Directors, Secretary and Staff Putnam County Agricultural Society

ON THE COVER A vibrant, luminous midway brightens the “fairscape” after dark. The midway continues as a staple of entertainment garnished with varied delectable edibles to create a hub of excitement!

General Motors Defiance Casting Operations and UAW Local 211 are proud to be a part of this year’s Putnam County Fair as we have a long history of employing many Putnam County residents. Our strong commitment to casting quality iron engine blocks, head and crankshafts, as well as aluminum engine blocks and heads can be traced back many generations. From the time when our plant opened in 1948 to the present, our foundry has seen vast changes, but our “can-do” work ethic has remained the same. We remain committed “To be the casting supplier for the world” and our focus on providing a safe working environment and working together to help General Motors build the world’s best vehicles has always been and will always be our goal. The Putnam County Fair has invited us to participate and showcase our exciting new vehicles, and we invite you to get behind the wheel of a new Chevy, Buick, GMC or Cadillac. Your

family and neighbors play a big part in GM’s success, and we are proud to have so many dedicated workers living in and around Putnam County. Enjoy the tradition that the Fair brings and appreciate the heritage that the Fair has to offer. As GM builds momentum on the way to gain market share and returns to profitability, we realize that people really do make the difference, and within our foundry we recognize that world class quality castings starts with a world class labor force. General Motors has committed to invest over $300 million at Defiance Casting Operations in the new generation of fuel efficient engines. We are excited to be a part of the Putnam County Fair, and we hope you will share our enthusiasm by test driving one of our new vehicles at a local GM dealership near you. Test Drive a GM Vehicle; Help the Red Cross This year, Defiance Casting Operations in Defiance and UAW Local 211 proudly announce a great opportunity to help the Red Cross when you take a test drive in an exciting new GM vehicle. Local dealerships have partnered for this cause and the Defiance GM plant will donate $5 for every test drive that takes place at the fairgrounds during this year’s Putnam County Fair. Properly licensed drivers, 21 and older, can participate to help a

great cause while test driving some of GM’s hottest new vehicles. Times and dates may vary, and will be announced prior to the opening day of the fair. Feel the excitement, get behind the wheel of an American-made GM vehicle, and help the Red Cross so they may help others. Defiance Casting Operations to Display Engines and Crankshafts Defiance Casting Operations is proud to display an educational exhibition of sand core, rough engine blocks and pre-machined engine blocks in the Merchant’s Building this year at the Putnam County Fair. See how engine blocks are cast using sand core packages, and see how the motor in your GM vehicle looks right after it emerged out of the green sand molding process The foundry process is a unique part of General Motors, and our display will demonstrate how old-school expertise meets modern technology while providing good-paying jobs that support communities in Northwest Ohio. The pride of the workers at the Defiance plant rings true as this display will also feature an array of personal safety equipment and foundry tools.

Putnam County Grounds Improvement Foundation Dear Sponsor, We would like to introduce our nonprofit foundation, The Putnam County Grounds Improvement Foundation, Inc. (PCGIF). We are all 100% volunteers, and all proceeds are utilized to renovate the Putnam County Fairgrounds. Our county has hundreds of 4-H and FFA members that count on the opportunity to show and demonstrate their annual projects at the county fair each June. Age has taken its toll on the property and situations need addressed to keep the property viable for all county residents. THe PCGIF was formed as a 501(c) 3 to allow for donations to be eligible for tax deductions. Enclosed you will find forms for the current projects that are highlighted here. The 10-foot sections of aluminum powder coated picket fencing can be personalized with a 2-line sponsor sign. The fencing is planned to stretch from Gate 1 to Gate 4. (East to West along the front property line). We have many sections yet to go. Paver bricks under the archway are still being sold for personalization with the funds to be used for continuing projects such as in painting roofs and barns, or toward the power grid. Each year campers enter the property with yet more amenities requiring power. The stress on the electrical system causes breakers to trip. Concession stands have to provide their own generators and they back bill this to the fair. PCGIF would like to hire electricians to upgrade and correct these issues. Drainage is another problem in certain areas of the 25 acres we call our fairgrounds. Many need flushed and new concrete formed at the mouth to help with the flow when the inevitable fair storms come. If you have ever ridden out a thunderstorm at the fairgrounds you too know where the problems are. Please consider donating to the fairgrounds renovation in one form or another. No donation is too small and we will offer recognition accordingly. Please make checks payable to PCGIF and mail to P.O. Box 47, Ottawa, OH 45875. If you have any questions or would like to volunteer time toward projects, please contact Mary Ann Williams at 419-615-9222 or Peg Kruse at the fair office 419-523-4628. Thank you in advance for your kind consideration, MaryAnn Williams President/Secretary PCGIF

Help Renovate the Fairgrounds Proposal to Businesses & Residents of Putnam County and Surrounding Areas Project: Renovation of the Putnam County Fairgrounds Non - Profit Organization: Putnam County Grounds Improvement Foundation, Inc. (PCGIF) Foundation Mission: To upgrade County properties for utilization by competitive commerce to stimulate income generating properties, to upgrade and promote our area. Description of the Project: The solicitation of an initial estimated $90,000.00 in private funds to renovate restrooms at the Merchant’s Building. Upgrading the restrooms will allow the Merchant’s building to be utilized for private and commercial events which will assist in generating funds to maintain the property and also assist with funding for the annual county fair. The county fair struggles to meet funding for the fair events. The goal is to allow the property and the fair to support itself. It will give the community at large another option for wedding receptions, family reunions, auctions, job fairs, and other public events. Painting of select barn roofs: Two (2-3) barn roofs are in sad shape. Seeking $15,000 for professional painting of these roofs. Other buildings are targeted for future painting. Landscaping and cosmetic grounds improvements – will be incorporated at the areas listed above. New Event/Advertising Marquee – We are looking for four-six sponsors that would like to purchase billboard advertisement beneath the proposed marquee sign on an annual renewal.
