Tuesday, the South Dakota State Fair Association announced that Earl Nordby of Huron has given a gift of $ 1 million to the Capital Campaign for the building of a new exhibit hall on the South Dakota State Fairgrounds.  The new exhibit hall will be called, Nordby Exhibit Hall for 4H, Youth and Community.  SDSU 4H Program Director Peter Nielsen says it’s a significant step in moving the $ 4 million project forward.

Nielsen says the old Cloverleaf hall is in dire need of replacing and the new building will be able to have multiple uses.

Nielsen says they’re hoping to have all the funding in place to be able to use the new facility during next year’s state fair.

The Nordby Exhibit Hall once completed will feature more than 35,000 square feet of space for multiple classrooms, a large kitchen for 4H special foods competitions, year round concessions and a performance stage.
