UPDATE: Today is the day to “Pay it Forward” for the nonprofit Graceworks at the Williamson County Fair. Bring four canned goods, food items or anything on the charity’s critical needs list in exchange for free admission on Monday night.

“It is a great thing to see crowds of people bringing in food items for GraceWorks at the Fair,”
said County Mayor Rogers Anderson, who is also the chairman of the fair. “‘Pay it Forward’ night is an annual
reminder of the special community we have here in Williamson County, and we are so pleased
to be able to give back in this way. We hope that we’ll set a new record tonight for pounds of
food collected during our 15th annual Fair.”
