Edna Schrandt joined the Winneshiek County Agricultural Association Board in 1992.  The board is responsible for running the Winneshiek County Fair.

Every year since then, she's been a fixture at the fairgrounds, becoming Business Manager of the Fair Board in 1997.  Current Board President Becky Winkler says Schrandt has brought in over $500,000 in sponsorships of the Fair in her 27 years working with the board.

This year will be her last year--officially--working with the board.  A celebration of those 27 years took place--where else?--at the Fairgrounds this week.  Edna and her children and grandchildren enjoyed a piece of cake and heard stories about the contributions she had made.

It's not just the Fair which benefits from her work--Edna has been active in volunteering for the 4-H, United Way, Saddle Club, Pony Express and many other community causes.
