Youth recognized for generosity


LOUDONVILLE, Ohio – The community turned out to support the exhibitors in the Loudonville Livestock Club.
And, in return, exhibitors turned back money to the community by donating to groups such as the Red Cross, church building funds and youth groups, scholarship funds, the livestock club and the Loudonville fair board for the purchase of additional hog pens.
Auctioneer Joseph Mast commended the young people for their generosity, noting that of the fairs that he has helped with, the Loudonville Livestock Club members are among the most generous.
