A Huron businessman who four months ago donated $1 million toward a new 4-H exhibit hall at the South Dakota Fairgrounds is chipping in more money.
Earl Nordby will match donations by the state's 4-H clubs and leaders who are looking to raise up to $500,000 for the nearly 47,000-square-foot $4 million exhibit hall.
Nordby, who made his money in the soft drink bottling industry, has given multiple donations to higher education, recreational facilities and health care efforts in South Dakota.
In 2011, Gov. Dennis Daugaard proclaimed May 6 as Earl Nordby Day.
