Sailer receives award, volunteer of the year
By Kate Johnson
Gaylen Sailer was named Regional Person of the Year for his tireless volunteerism at the Mercer County Fair.
Sailer is not a fair board member but dedicates his time to seeing it be a success year after year.
Vice President of North Dakota Association of Fairs Laura Benz said he volunteers during the setup prior to the fair starting. Sailer brings his own, personal equipment to aid the process.
Sailer brings his skid steer to move and put the fence around the beer garden, as well as the fence around the entire fair perimeter. He also helps move the stage and picnic tables.
During the fair he is present throughout the entire four days. Benz said he can be found wiping off tables in the concession area, picking up trash, moving bleachers, setting up chairs and putting up tents.
