Cornell Cooperative Extension to Offer Free Fair Admission to Vets, First Responders on Sunday, August 7th
Cornell Cooperative Extension Niagara County is very excited to announce their recent enrollment in the Niagara County Thank a Vet program. CCE Niagara will offer free admission on Sunday to any current member of the military or veteran as part of the Thank a Vet Program. First responders will also be admitted to the Fair for free that day. This offer is a way for CCE Niagara County to recognize the service and sacrifices made by our community’s returning veterans, service men and women, and emergency personnel.
Niagara County Clerk Joseph A. Jastrzemski said, “I am very excited to have Cornell Cooperative Extension join our Thank A Vet program and become one of the hundreds of organizations who offer benefits and discounts to our veterans. Honoring our military personnel on Sunday along with our first responders with free fair admission is a great way to say thank you to all these heroes.”
Eligible service members will receive free admission on Sunday, August 7th to the Niagara County Fair. Admission for all other fairgoers on Sunday will be $5 per person or $15 per carload. The carload price will be discounted by $5 if there is a veteran, active military service member, or first responder in the vehicle.
Justin Rogers, CCE Niagara Executive Director and Director of the Niagara County Fair said, “We all rely on those who choose to serve us selflessly every day, this is just our small way of saying thank you.”
