2016 State Fair Fun

By: Rebekah Bjork | November 12, 2016

This summer we had a team of 20 volunteers who worked at the State Fair to fill the brochures for the Minnesota State Fair History Walking Tour. They contributed 95 hours to making sure the brochures stayed filled for the visitors who completed the tour. After surveying the volunteers, 79% said they are very likely to volunteer for this program again. One of our volunteers said what they liked most about this program was “I could experience the Fair and at the same time help out MNHS.”
