August 2013

August is here, and it’s almost time for the Iowa State Fair. I don’t know about you, but it seems to me this was a short summer. The only good thing about that is that it’s time for the Fair. I love the Fair. The sights, just when you think you’ve seen it all, you shake your head and think, now I’ve seen it all. The sounds, animals, kids, adults, music and so much more. The smells, grease, sugar and animals. Sounds bad, but it’s hard to resist a corn dog, the mini donuts or little chocolate chip cookies, chicken (or anything else) on a stick.


How do they keep coming up with new things on a stick every year? As many times as I have been to the Fair, I know there are parts of the Fairgrounds that I have never been to. So if you love the Fair, go and have fun. If you haven’t been in a while, yes, a lot of things stay the same, but there is always something new. Whatever you do this month while summer is winding down, have fun!


Our meeting this month is at Prairie Meadows. Our speaker is Karen Parman, a cancer survivor who climbed Mt. Everest with the Above and Beyond cancer awareness organization. I’m sure she will have stories to inspire and encourage us. Also, we will have a drawing for members of $25 cash. If you feel lucky you can gamble, but if you are not a gambler, you can spend it or save it for whatever you would like. It’s been 2 months since we were together, and it will be great to see everyone.


Hope to see you there.   Remember to submit your nominations for our Woman of the Year before 8/31, too!
