Vriendschap Village celebrates State Fair


The Pella Chronicle

---- — “Nothing compares” to the Iowa State Fair but Vriendschap Village Retirement Community of Pella came close.

As the Iowa State Fair kicked off on August 8, residents celebrated with a day of traditional fairgoer activities, including trying their hand at carving likenesses of cows, horses and goats from butter and enjoying fair-inspired foods on-a-stick.

“The Iowa State Fair is such an exciting time and we wanted to bring a taste of the fair here — literally!” said Executive Director Brenda Colvin. “Residents had a great time sculpting their own miniature versions of the butter cow, as smaller replicas of the State Fair’s life-size butter cow, and reminiscing on family trips to the State Fair.”
