By Tere Dunlaptdunlap@ themonroetimes.comMONROE - Business advertising is becoming more visible at the Green County Fair, and Susan Konopacki, the fair's sponsorship coordinator, hopes fair-goers take notice. "We want them to notice the graciousness of the businesses and would like them to support these businesses," Konopacki said.The Green County Fair is privately-funded; it does not receive county government funding. "One bad year can affect the fair financially, which is why the sponsorship program is so important," Konopacki said.As an example of the fair's vulnerability, Konopacki explained that one grandstand performance was rained out last year, but the fair still had to pay $25,000 for the show.Konopacki is pleased with the response of local business owners to her mail requests for sponsors.
