The Minnesota State Fair 2016 Day 1 = A Great Get Together or What I did at the Fair

Just a minute, A little research for your reading pleasure: “The Minnesota State Fair was named the best state fair in the United States in 2015 by readers of USA Today.[7]

My first trip to the Minnesota State Fair on Tuesday was in support of the Minnesota Brain Injury Association, which is a non-profit organization that supports people with brain injury and actively campaigns the legislature on their behalf. I brought my camera to document our trip to the various booths to promote awareness regarding health care spend downs for people receiving medical assistance. Stops included the Education building to talk to State Legislators and take a survey; The DFL booth where we posed with Amy Klobuchar; The Republican booth – people talked to the Chair of the Minnesota Republican Party, Keith Downey; final stop was at MPR Booth where Amy made a radio recording to go out over the airwaves on behalf of the Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance.

These are but a few people the Brain Injury Alliance advocates for throughout the year.

Thanks to Jeff Nachbar and Erica Schmiel  (See the tall guy in the very back is Jeff and the woman with brown hair in front of Jeff, is Erica) for organizing us and leading us so well. We appreciate having our voices heard and your tireless support.


Thank you to all the people who talked to us too!

Our next Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance event is the Twin Cities 2016 Walk For Thought  and will take place on Saturday, September 17, 2016 at Long Lake Regional Park in New Brighton.

Thanks for stopping by my kitchen.

Have a great week.
