It took collaboration to put on a show | News, Sports, Jobs
Small utility vehicles, window frames and storage containers for use in the kitchen were among dozens of products on display at the recent Home, Garden and Lifestyle Show, held Friday, Saturday and Sunday. And if anyone came to the show for information about the services available to help homeowners, they were in luck because companies that provide everything from renovations to disaster cleanup were also there.
Participation in the show resulted in prizes for some lucky ones. A Husqvarna ride-on mower worth $2,400 was donated. Five $100 gift cards from Sears Hometown Store and a $500 gift card from Menards were also given away.
Presentations on everything from martial arts to the new Fort Dodge Fiber broadband utility were held
Food from Clayton’s Ribs and Chicken in Fort Dodge was also available. Fort Dodge Ford Lincoln Toyota hosted a pancake breakfast Saturday morning at the show.
To see and get all of this in one place, you usually have to travel to a major city. This is however not the case here. The Home, Garden and Lifestyle Show brought it all together for residents of the East Campus area of Iowa Central Community College. And no one had to pay big city prices to get into the show because admission was free thanks to Hy-Vee.
Many collaborations have made this show possible for local residents.
It was sponsored by The Messenger, The Daily Freeman-Journal in Webster City and Sears Hometown Store. Sears Hometown Store also donated the donated riding mower.
Iowa Central Community College granted permission to use East Campus for the show.
P & R Entry Doors Inc. of Duncombe sponsored the speakers’ presentations. Speakers included Kelsey Felch, of Faiferlick Taekwondo, Martial Arts, Self-Defense and Fitness LLC and Next Edge Performance.
And then there were the dozens of vendors.
All of these people and companies have come together to produce a quality show.
We thank them and look forward to working with them on future shows.
We also thank the hundreds of people who came to East Campus for the show.
