State Fair Volunteer Group

Military Appreciation Day at the MN State Fair-August 27, 2013

It was a beautiful day at the fair to honor the Vietnam Veterans.  Volunteers from Hennepin Technical College, Best Buy, Thomson Reuters, DNR and Prudential were all there to help out.  We handed out bandanas to all in attendence along the parade route.  It was great to see everyone waiving their bandanas and clapping as the Veterans came by in the parade.
