John Glessner Presents Photo Collage

November 15, 2016 – Greenville OH

The Board of Directors for the Darke County Agricultural Society recently received a framed photo collage from John Glessner. John and his wife Rosella lived on Martz Street at the time of the December 27, 2013 fire that destroyed the 60′ by 240′ Beef Palace; the 60′ by 240′ Dairy Palace; the 50’ by 50’ connector and the 12’ by 20’ Cattle Office. The 34 photo collage includes images of the actual fire, the demolition, site preparation and construction of the new 170-foot by 240-foot all steel Beef and Dairy Pavilion. The picture shows Mr. Glessner holding the photo collage along with the 11 Board Members and Fair Manager at a recent meeting.
