Golf the show, and win chance at prize

This year's Buena Vista County Ag & Home Show Saturday, January 31, will feature indoor mini golf, cash door prizes, a Storm Lake Ambassadors Lunch, and over 70 exhibitors.

The event runs 9 a.m.-4 p.m. at 1403 N Lake Avenue (South of Dollar General in the previous Moeller Furniture site). Admission is free. The BV Pork Producers will be grilling.

The show is sponsored by the Storm Lake Chamber of Commerce.

Area ag products and home improvement ideas will all be displayed under one roof. Over 70 related exhibitors will be on hand to showcase their products and services. A total of $100 in Storm Lake Bucks will be given away as door prizes at the end of the day.

A new feature this year is a miniature golf course throughout the show floor. The Hy-Noon Kiwanis and the vendors have teamed up to provide this special activity. Collect a score card at the front desk, and golf your way through the show. Turn in your card when finished, and qualify to win part of the $100 in Storm Lake Bucks prize.

Dr. Elwynn Taylor, renowned agricultural meteorologist and extension climatologist from Iowa State University, is the featured speaker at this year's show. Dr. Taylor speaks at 2 p.m.

Molly Wilson, owner of the Sugar Bowl Gift Shop of Storm Lake, will be presenting "Entertaining with Pizzazz, from Appetizers to Zinfandel." Each person who attends will receive a gift to inspire their own entertaining creativity. Audience participation is encouraged. It will be a fun, hands-on program with lots of demonstrating! Wilson is speaking at 10 a.m.
