The first day of August brings evokes mixed feelings for many of us. For some, it is the first sign of summer nearing an end, with the start of school just one month away. For others, it generates excitement, as many festivals and fairs are about to get under way.
This year at the Dan Patch Project, August 1 is a signal that the start of the Minnesota State Fair is just 25 days away. That means we have just over three weeks to achieve our fundraising goal of $100,000 by the time the first basket of cheese curds is ordered.
How are we doing? We’re about one quarter of the way there. We know human nature is to wait until the last minute, so we’re not worried yet. Nonetheless, we know we’ve got a ways to go.
Please help us achieve our goal of bringing Dan Patch back to the Minnesota State Fair and honoring he and his final owner, M.W. Savage, by making a tax deductible donation today.
