Fair Board Eyes Means of Setting Up Veterans Exhibit

It approves steps to create a nonprofit organization, though one director says this would over-complicate matters.

 

The Orange County Fair Board on Thursday approved steps to create a nonprofit organization whose primary goal would be set up a veterans exhibit at the fairgrounds in Costa Mesa.

 

Officials estimate that it will cost the organization $12,000 to $15,000 to form a federally recognized nonprofit, as well as create bylaws and policies. The board’s legal counsel — Manatt, Phelps & Phillips — will do the work.

 

Fair Board Director Nick Berardino, a Vietnam War-era Marine veteran, said the exhibit will honor the memories of those who served their country and show that “freedom isn’t free.”
