Spring = New Beginnings!

Ah, spring! Nothing feels as good as the opportunity to open doors and windows and get a wiff of the fresh air outside! Although some days it seems the temperature can’t decide if it’s ready to let winter go yet, the birds are singing and our grass is starting to green up!

We’ve decided to re-dedicate ourselves to this blog, clearly we’ve slipped a bit! Blame it on dreary winter days or the months of cold. But, we’re back!

Would you like some updates?

  • How about that Grandstand Lineup? From Sugarland and Reba to Train to Lynyrd Skynyrd and Def Leppard, this year’s line up is sure to have something for everyone! Thanks to all of our Fan Fair donors, who have made this a great year. Besides getting great seats at the concerts, you’re helping a great cause! If you didn’t get involved this year, stay tuned for Fan Fair 2012!
  • Did you make it to the Hairball concert a couple of weeks ago? For all of you eighties music fans out there that just couldn’t wait for the Fair, we hosted another concert at the Jacobson Center. A great crowd turned out and had a great time!

  • If you haven’t turned you taxes in yet, don’t forget to participate in the Corndog Tax Checkoff! Look for the State Fairgrounds Renovation Checkoff on line 58b on Iowa Tax form 1040 or line 14 on Iowa Tax form 1040A.
  • Only 140 days to go until the Iowa State Fair! While it dreary outside today, I’ll leave you with an image of great things yet to come this summer!

Have a great rest of the week!
