Potash Company of Lima Ohio recently announced a gift of $300,000 to the Allen County Agricultural Society, managers of the Allen County Fair.  In making the gift, Potash General Manager Todd Sutton said Potash is committed to improving our communities and increasing long term food production.  The Allen County Fairgrounds is a place that contributes to both those goals.  We believe our $300,000 commitment will make a difference today and help prepare the fairgrounds to remain an important part of our community for years to come. 

The Allen County Fair Board would like to thank Potash and express how grateful they are for this generous gift.  This gift will strengthen the appeal of the Fairgrounds as a leading event center of our region and further expand its economic contribution to the community.
