Normally the Iowa State Fairgrounds would be moving and shaking as spring arrives with warmer weather. There would be flea markets, horse shows, weddings and other events filling the facilities.  With the current guidelines set in place to mitigate the spread the Coronavirus, the Fairgrounds are closed to the public and events have been postponed.

But don’t worry, the maintenance staff has used the “quieter” time around the Fairgrounds to safely continue work on improvement projects. One of those projects is the renovation of the Livestock Pavilion restrooms. 

The restrooms located within the building have not been updated in more than 40 years. The only toilet facilities in the area, they are heavily used and in desperate need of renovation to meet modern standards. The updates will bring the restroom facilities into the 21st century, providing a better service to our customers and make cleaning them more efficient for our maintenance crews.

The updates include tiling the walls, installing metallic epoxy flooring, replacing the toilet partitions, adding solid surface sinks, new counters and improving the electrical fixtures.

You can be part of this renovation project by joining the T.A.G. Team. It’s a simple concept; Together we can Accomplish our Goals. For a $250 donation, the first 100 donors will be accepted into this unique group. Your name will be listed as a key player in the renovation project and you will receive a commemorative pin to denote your membership in the 2020 T.A.G. Team.

We haven’t reached our goal of 100 members yet – join today.
