Farm & Home moves to April
One of the tough things about a wintertime event is, well, winter.
For the second time in 36 years, Saturday's Windom Farm & Home Show was snowed out. Chamber Director Anna Smith said organizers saw Thursday afternoon's decision as both frustrating and necessary.
The show was moved to April 6. Ironically, that was the date selected in 2002, the only other time the event was postponed. In both 2002 and 2019, organizers had no choice but to raise the white flag and hope for the best on April 6.
"At the end of the day, it was a matter of safety," Smith said. "We wanted it to be a good show for vendors and we don't want people out traveling in bad conditions."
Will this work out OK for our Farm & Home Show? History is on our side.
A 2002 Citizen story about the postponement reported most booth holders and all of the major entertainment committed to the event. This time around, only six of the 70 booth holders are unable to return on April 6. Smith hopes more booths can be added in the coming weeks.
One new wrinkle planned for April 6 is that a MnDOT speaker has been added to the event. The 11:30 a.m. session will focus on the upcoming resurfacing project through Windom.
Township results
The annual township meetings were underway as this edition went to press.
Next week's Citizen will carry the results of those meetings, so I'm asking township officers for a little help. Please e-mail or call with the following information: number of attendees, levy amount approved by the board and any other important information.
Township officers can contact me at: rahnl@windomnews.com, or by calling 507-831-3455 (leave a phone number, if possible).
