Inmates paint new barn for Bolton Fair

The Bolton Common

Responding to a request from Bolton Fair President Rose Darden,
Worcester County Sheriff Lewis G. Evangelidis recently provided free inmate labor through the Sheriff’s Inmate Community Service Program to the Bolton Fair Association for some much needed exterior painting of its newly constructed barn, also known as the Old McDonald Barn. The structure will serve as the home to the fair’s petting zoo when the Bolton Fair celebrates it’s 136th anniversary in August.

In addition to the exterior painting of the new barn, the inmate work crew also painted tiered risers, which will serve as outside seating. The project completed by the sheriff’s Inmate Community Service Program provides the Bolton Fair Association with more than $12,000 in savings.

In addition to helping the Bolton Fair Association, an inmate work crew completed a project at Bolton’s Community Cable Access providing a savings of more than $15,000.
