Yesterday during the Rice County Fair's 'Best of the Best' agricultural awards Jerry was surprised to learn that he had won an award, one that wasn't listed in the program, and on top of that honor, he was then surprised with his whole family being in attendance.
Wednesday Jerry Groskreutz is looking forward to hosting the "Best of the Best Agriculture Awards" from the fair in an expanded KDHL AM Minnesota program. Minnesota Department of Agriculture Commissioner Thom Petersen is scheduled to be in attendance.
Here in Minnesota, we are trapped by cold weather for longer than (seemingly) humanly possible, so when summer comes, we seize all the sunshine we can; hence the reason we have county fairs nearly every summer weekend.
During a special broadcast from the fairgrounds in Cannon Falls we learned from fair organizers the Truck and Tractor Pull in the Grandstand Thursday was so large it didn't get over until 2:30 Friday morning.
