Dodge County Expo just keeps growing
Kelly Wilkins, 4-H Program Coordinator, shows Morgan Ness and Ashley Christensen Dr. Suess' Oobleck. The girls dipped their hands in and discover the mix of 2 cups cornstarch and 1 cup is strange stuff. It is a liquid but as soon as you touch it and move it around it because a solid. The moment you stopped moving it around it becomes a liquid again.

Dreary, cold spring weather may have contributed to making the 15th Annual Dodge County Expo a popular place to spend a good part of the day but, whatever the motivation, more people attended the Expo Saturday, April 13 at Triton High School than ever before. More than 3,000 people turned out to meet the 103 businesses and organizations exhibiting at the Expo this year.

One of the notable differences from past years was the absence of the queue of early morning visitors coming for the Farmers' Share Breakfast. This year, for the first time not all the breakfasts planned for were served.

Parking was the only issue anyone complained about as all the parking areas around th school were filled with cars most of the morning from about 8 a.m. until after noon.



There seemed to be more people attending from outside Dodge County this year. There were many from the Pine Island and Byron areas registered for the many drawings held by exhibitors and the Expo sponsoring chambers and community clubs. Several people from outside Dodge County expressed surprise at the number of exhibits and the size of the crowd coming to the show.



The Expo is hosted by the Dodge Center Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by all the Dodge County chambers and community clubs, which include Claremont, Hayfield, Kasson, Mantorville and West Concord. The mission of the Expo is to give Dodge County residents to become acquainted with the many businesses and organizations available to serve them in Dodge County and to encourage residents to shop for those services locally whenever possible.

Members of the Expo committee are Dodge Center: Gerry Fahning, Carol Johnson, Kristy Faber, Melanie Dobson, Larry Dobson; Kasson: Bill Kase; Hayfield: Tom Monahan; West Concord: Dan Rabe; Claremont: Romell Matejcek; Mantorville: Lynnette Nash.

The Expo is held each spring at the end of March or beginning of April.
