The Fairfax Improvement Foundation is joining with the Fairfax community to raise funds for aluminum bleachers at the Fairfax R-3 School football field.

Improved outdoor seating will also allow the community to easily and safely engage in school events such as graduations, assemblies, pep rallies, and more, and will enhance the overall appearance of the stadium. The goal is to have the bleachers installed for use during the upcoming football season.

Donations may be mailed to the Fairfax Improvement Foundation, Attn: Jill Kingery, P.O. Box 31, Fairfax, MO 64446. You can also contribute online at fairfaxim
