After years of dedicated service to Morgan County and especially to the fairgrounds, the Morgan County Events Center will be dedicated in honor of Mark Arndt during a ceremony July 1 at the County Fair.

"It's quite an honor, it really is," said Arndt."I'm really proud of the fairgrounds and what it's become and all the memories I've had over the years,"
Arndt said he remembered the days when he and others would have to use their tools to fix things up before they could have the fair each year.
"I've traveled to a lot of fairs, and we don't have to take second place to anyone our size," said Arndt.
...
Steve Treadway, who is on the Rodeo Board and who was instrumental in getting the Events Center dedicated, said Arndt added the north grandstand, the big restroom facilities, the events center, the kitchen on the west side of it and the announcer stand and pushed for the upgrade of the livestock pens and the fair facilities.
...
Arndt said he was involved with "just about every building there except for (the) 4H building."He said he worked on the multi-purpose building, the beast barn, the new grandstands, the renovations to the sheep and hog barns and the completion of the indoor arena.
Arndt said when the Events Center was in the planning stages, he envisioned somthing that could be used year round to hold special activities and could be used by the Colorado State Cooperative Exchange.Arndt said that the money for the Events Center came from lottery money and the building was completed eight years ago.
Treadway described Arndt as being "dedicated" to all of the new additions and upgrades to the fair facilities and said, "He certainly was a driving force in all of it."
...
"(Arndt's) trademark is all over the fairgrounds."
"Our county fair is a family event," said Arndt."It's something kids can go to and they're safe there."
Arndt said the there has been talk of getting a carnival for the fair, but that people do not want that.He thinks people want it to remain the family-centered event that it is, describing it as the kind of event where "everybody watched out for everybody else."
Arndt had nothing but good things to say about his experiences with people on the many boards he has served on.He said he spent 12 years on the fair board from 1979 to 1992.
"I enjoyed working on all the boards," Arndt said."I plan on being involved until I can't walk anymore."
Arndt was elected a county commissioner in 1992 and served until term limits forced him to step down after 12 years of service.When elected, he was just 31, making him the youngest county commissioner ever elected at the time.
He also served as the chairman of the Northeastern Colorado Transit Authority and received the Service to Agriculture Award in 2001, given for significant contributions to the agricultural industry in Morgan County.
Arndt was also elected by his peers to be president of the Colorado Counties Inc.

Arndt is a veteran Morgan County commissioner who has served as chairman of the Northeastern Colorado Transit Authority.
...
Arndt raised concerns about finances in 1998 that resulted in County Express being moved from NECTA to NECALG.
