Today's AM Minnesota program will feature another edition of Rice County Fair Talk. Rice County Fair Manager John Dvorak will be in studio along with Art Madsen. We will talk about the Rice County Fair Hall of Fame program, now in I believe it's eleventh year. This is a program sponsored by the Faribault Chamber of Commerce Agri-business committee, the Rice County Fair and Doug Gilbertson owner of the Nerstrand Agri-Center. I think Art will announce this year's inductees into the Rice County Fair Hall of Fame. In addition Doug will join us on the phone.

There is a lot of activity these days on the Rice County Fair Grounds. Monday afternoon the construction crews were just finishing repaving the road through the fairgrounds. Construction volunteers are really making progress on the 1900's era barn. The frame is up, the roof is on and they are working on the sidewalls. Yes, it sure looks like it will be finished in time for the Rice County Fair.
