Gateway FS Construction Services local county fairs

County Fair Season in Full Swing

At FS Construction Services we always love it when July comes around because it’s county fair month. Few things feel like summer more than the music, food, games, and entertainment of a county fair. Much of our work, whether it’s buildings, grain systems, seed system or more, takes place in the world of agriculture, and it’s always great to see that world opened up for and enjoyed by the many guests of these fairs. Lucky for us, where we’re located, we have the benefit of having two close by.

The first one is the Randolph County Fair, which takes place from July 12 to July 20 in Sparta. Traditionally, this fair features a variety of food, 4H shows, animal judging, and a tractor and truck pull.

The next week, the Monroe County Fair in begins in Waterloo. From July 21 to July 28 you’ll be able to enjoy all the carnival-type games, foods, and rides that you would expect as well as rooster crowing contests, demolition derby, figure 8, horse shows, and more. The 72nd year of this great event is sure to bring the same joy and fun it always has. Additionally, the Monroe County Fair features a few free admission nights, so anyone can come and have a great time.

To read more about this year’s Monroe County Fair you can visit and to read about last year’s Randolph County Fair you can visit here.

As always, you can reach out to us for any building, grain system, seed system, roofing, garage door, or other service needs. We are always happy to work with our clients on finding the best possible solutions, whether it’s a complex job or a simple task, and we’re happy to answer questions and troubleshoot problems when they arise.

We invite you to contact us today at Gateway FS Construction Services and experience the value, quality and service you deserve. You can give us a call at 866-551-3454, and let our specialists help. We look forward to providing you the best customer service experience.


Gateway FS Construction Services fourth of July

The Privilege of Serving

Every Fourth of July we like to look back and remember that even though life is full of setbacks, difficulties, and trials, we are also tremendously fortunate to live where we do and enjoy the freedoms we have. At FS Construction Services, it has been our privilege to work closely alongside so many dedicated and tireless men and women who willingly give up a little bit of their own freedom, working long hours, weekends, in all kinds of weather, so we can have food on our tables.

It’s our privilege to work with the client who wants to preserve a small piece of history by putting time, effort, and money into the restoration of an old building. Or provide a new coat of paint to the local Police and Fire Department buildings so they can enjoy the feeling of coming to work in a fresh environment.

We have loved all the ways, small and big, that we have been able to be a part of this community for the past 40-plus years. And while the work is what takes to any given job site, it’s the people there that remind us why we keep going, building, and serving.

We wish you and your family and friends a wonderful Fourth of July holiday. We hope you’re able to take some time to find joy and appreciation in what you have and the company of those around you. Maybe even spend a minute reflecting on the words that Lee Greenwood so wonderfully placed into the song “Proud to be an American”. We are so very fortunate to live not only in the U.S.A. but in the heart of the heartland.

To those of you we’ve had the pleasure to work with, we hope to see you around, and to those we have yet to meet, we would love the chance to help you with any building, grain, seed, roofing, or other construction needs. But even more than that, we would love a chance to get to hear your story and discover the ways that you have served and built up those around you. Give us a call at 866-551-3454, and let our specialists help you find exactly what you are looking for. We look forward to providing you the best customer service experience.
