Rural Missouri - August 2011 - (Page 26)

Meet us at the fair! Rising temperatures and kids complaining about school starting back up can only mean one thing: It’s time for the Missouri State Fair. Join us Aug. 11-21 in Sedalia for the state’s most tradition-rich event that the whole family will enjoy. Besides the big-name concerts, free entertainment and agricultural competitions and exhibits, make sure to stop by the Missouri’s Electric Cooperatives Building to chat with electric cooperative employees and the Rural Missouri staff. The magazine will have on display some of its award-winning photography, favorite articles from the past and “Online Extras” from the magazine’s digital edition. Perhaps no addition to the Rural Missouri booth has been more engaging than the “People from our Pages” showcase. Each day, a person or organization featured in the pages of the magazine will be on hand to meet with visitors and display the talent or the cause that made them a subject in Rural Missouri. Back by popular demand are the folks from the PHARM Dog program, cowboy mounted shooters and the people from P.E.T. who will showcase N E W S their mobility wheelchairs. From recent articles, watch artist Jim Peters paint a Missouri landscape, see a bird of prey up close from professional falconers and marvel at the photography of Mike McArthy.
