Meet Me at the Fair offers seniors a ride

August 25, 2018 GMT

Decorated golf carts will again be seen on the fairgrounds the first day of the 131st Sandwich Fair, between 9 a.m. and noon Sept. 5. It’s all part of the Meet Me at the Fair program that’s hosted by Fox Valley Older Adult Services and the Sandwich Fair Association. Senior citizens and others unable to walk distances can park across from the fairgrounds at FVOAS, 1406 Suydam Road, for a $5 donation per car that morning. They can then ride over to the fairgrounds and spend time visiting or touring exhibit halls before returning by noon. The decorated golf cars driven by Patty Webber and her crew will run continually, picking up and returning passengers, but those returning must leave the fairgrounds by noon. Reservations are encouraged; call FVOAS at 815-786-9404 weekdays.
