It's official! Summer is just about over. How do I know? Today was opening day at the Minnesota State Fair. It will run for just about two weeks, winding down on Labor Day. 
It's been a great summer and while I'll be sad to see it go, I'm excited to see what fall will have in store for us. In fact, I've been working on some great programs this summer so keep an eye out for more information the first week in September.
