(PAOLI) - The Orange County Fair is in full swing and will run through July 14th.

Officials honored a long-time volunteer in a private ceremony Saturday with the naming of the Rabbit and Poultry building. The building was named after Billy R. Drury, who passed away in April. A new sign was unveiled during the ceremony renaming the building the Billy R. Drury Rabbit and Poultry Pavilion.

Drury was injured in a terrible logging accident on March 17, 2015, but overcame what doctors called impossible odds. Drury dedicated his life to his family and helping others.
