State Fair Story
"Every year we log over 70 hours of leisure time at the Minnesota State Fair. Until recently, we thought this was the best way to express our love for the event. You can imagine how thrilled we were to learn of a better way to show our appreciation.
By purchasing a recognition bench, we not only leave our mark on the fair, but we also help to raise funds and provide a necessary resource, a place to sit. We are grateful for the opportunity to support an event where people from all walks of life converge with one common goal – to have fun."
