Hand painted ornaments for the Fairgrounds fundraiser are still available for purchase at Sarah’s Enchanted Cottage. We have raised around $100 so far. Gin Fox has organized a Jackson County Barn tour with Kansas Barn Alliance for the Kansas Sesquicentennial “Paint Your Barn” celebration to be held this fall. If you would like to participateyour barn painting must include a sunflower and the word “Kansas” and the dates 1861-2011. We are hoping to get the community involved with barn painting. You can visit the Kansas Barn Alliance booth at the Jackson County Livestock Expo at the fairgrounds on January 29th or find more information at www.kansasbarnalliance.org.
