The Ashland County Fair Board and The American Legion Auxiliary have put together a Wall of Honor display in the Veterans Building at the Fairgrounds. As you visit the fair this year, take time to view pictures of all the brave men and women who have served our country from Ashland County, whether in conflict or peace time. If you wish to honor a veteran during fair week, you have until (this) Friday September 6th to submit a photo for the wall. Photos must be 5" x 7".
