Volunteers Serving the Community
The Wadena County Ag Society is a team of volunteers who plan and put on the events that the fairgrounds hosts throughout the year. We are community members who live and work in the communities that we serve so we try hard to create experiences that we know our communities can benefit from and would enjoy. Interested in joining the WCAS and being a part of this group? We are ALWAYS looking for more volunteers to serve on our board, and if you like it, down the road you can even run for a leadership position on the board of directors. Help as little or as much as you want, we can use help wherever you are able and willing. Please consider completing the form below and joining the WCAS, or you can message us from our website or on our Facebook page!
