Corman Secures Grant for Centre County Grange Fair

(HARRISBURG) – Sen. Jake Corman (R-34) today announced that he has secured a state grant for the Centre County Grange Fair.

Corman secured a $40,000 state grant for the Centre County Grange Fair, which will be used to offset the costs of constructing a new utility building to house both Emergency Services and Security operations.

Because of the vast growth of the Grange Fair in recent years and the need to provide facilities to house emergency services on a regular basis, the Grange Fair Board approached Sen. Corman to assist with funding for a permanent structure.

Corman noted that the Centre County Grange Encampment and Fair, better known as “The Grange Fair,” is unique in being “an encampment fair.” Each year, nearly 1,000 families create a temporary tent city on the grounds of “Grange Park” for the eight days that the fair runs. That number is doubled by the families who are accommodated in over 1,300 RVs on site.

“I was very pleased to assist the Grange Fair with this grant,” Corman said. “With this funding, the Grange Fair can upgrade the facility to accommodate future and present needs and continue to be a destination for area families each summer.”

Senator Jake Corman, the Senate’s Majority Policy Chairman, represents the 34th Senatorial District, which includes Centre, Mifflin, Juniata, Perry and Union Counties.
