Rotary at the State Fair - August 30th
By now you must have August 30 circled on your Rotary Calendar, right?! If not, why not? As mentioned in the Rotary year kick-off video (, the Rotary Blitz is coming to the Minnesota State Fair! Now is the time to make plans to join with Rotarians from Districts 5960, 5950, and 5580.
We need you and yours (families encouraged) to build a blitz with hundreds of our upper Midwest Rotary Family. And what better way to throw a party than at the "Great Minnesota Get-Together!" We are not the only ones that recognize how spectacular this annual must-go event is. Newsweek recently honored it as the sole North American entry [“Americana at it’s best”], in late summer worldwide festivals.
If it’s been a while since your last fair visit, now’s the time to get reacquainted with this Minnesota staple, and no better way than with a couple hundred Rotarian friends and family!
Our Public Image team is working on ways to get us noticed through the day. Maybe the Governor will declare this Rotary Day at the Fair?!
We encourage you to bring your family members to share in the FUN! Kids 10 and over are welcome to work alongside their parents/ grandparents in “act of service” in Equimania” in the Horse barn. Forty volunteers will receive FREE Fair admission tickets!
We are also looking for groups to blitz broadcast booths (television and radio stations) through the day.
