Barn construction underway at Clayton Fairgrounds

April 1, 2014

Work on the long awaited goat barn has started at the Clayton Fairgrounds.
During the fair’s annual livestock auction two years ago, Willow Jones donated a meat goat as a fund-raiser for a needed goat barn. Rosemary Jones, along with her mother, children, Gail Kersey and Roberta Fuge spent that summer collecting donations and selling raffle tickets for a quilt (created by Sandi Stillman) with all the proceeds going to the goat barn.
The following summer, Rebecca Layman and others had a turn at selling tickets for another goat barn quilt fund-raiser. Layman also incorporated her high school project as a tool to bring awareness to the community for the need for a goat barn at the fairgrounds.
The fairgrounds also received a Washington State Department of Agriculture grant through the efforts of Sarah Cotter.
The Clayton Community Fair Board gave big “thank yous” to various groups and individuals to help with the goat barn project, including Laura Wright, Brittney Hawkins, Molly Aberle, Rebecca Layman, the Wildrose Dairy Goat Breeders Association, Nobleman’s Plumbing and Northwest Dairy Women of Washington.
