Grandstand support pillars in place


Joe Gier, left, and Bob Ortel, both of North Collins, N.Y. fill dirt Tuesday, April 11, around the piers they put into the ground which will support the new grandstand being built at the Shelby County Fairgrounds. The piers are anchored by concrete squares which are a foot thick. Ortel was operating a “Jumping Jack” which packs down dirt to prevent settling.
