Craving 2012 “It’s a Sweet Thing” Corndog Kickoff photos? Here are a few! 

More pictures will be up soon on the Blue Ribbon Foundation Facebook page!




On a side note, around the Blue Ribbon office, visitors, volunteers and fellow Fair staff members often ask “Are you ready for the Fair coming up?  Those eleven days are crazy!” Even though I haven’t witnessed the “craziness” of the Fair from a staff member's perspective yet, I can already begin to understand what everyone is talking about.  On Wednesday, the Blue Ribbon Staff attended the Superintendent’s meeting to learn about the Fair’s crisis management, marketing, concessions, special events and other departments.  It was definitely helpful to learn what’s going on across the Fairgrounds so we can do our best to assist with questions during the Fair.

Thank you for all the volunteers that came to the volunteer reception yesterday!  There was a great turnout.  The volunteers, along with the Blue Ribbon Staff enjoyed a “fiesta-chicken” meal catered by Campbell’s Catering followed by Molly's presentation of Fair facts and unveiling some new attractions you can expect to see on the Fairgrounds.  Following, the volunteers had an opportunity to get a tour of the Fairgrounds. Can't remember the day you volunteer for the Fair?  Check out the volunteer page to view the master schedule!

Stay tuned! The Iowan of the Day winners will be announced soon!  The panel of judges are very excited about recognizing this well-deserving group of Iowans who have made a great impact in their community.  Once again, thank you so much to all the Iowan of the Day nominators and Fair volunteers!
