Unlike the snooze-fest that Doug attended, I was able to hobnob with not only Ed Malloy, Mayor of Fairfield, but His Magnificence, John Hagelin. It's good that FFL's power-wielding übermensches were able to attend both presentations and keep a finger on the pulse of the community, but clearly, I got the better assignment. To hell with "local dignitary", I want to, henceforth, be known as "Her Magnificence". ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <awoelflebater@...> wrote : ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com mailto:FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <j_alexander_stanley@...> wrote : Yep, total snooze-fest.

The property is just north of the Campus at 1916 Highway 1 North, next to the Reiff Grain Elevator. A building on the property is being remodeled to house classrooms, offices, and a kitchen, along with an attached greenhouse. Another building will be constructed to house a composting facility, with additional smaller buildings to store tools. The Center will evolve in three stages. The renovation, composting facility and irrigation lines will be incorporated in the first stage, with the planting of nut groves and orchards and installing an irrigation pond encompassing the second. The third stage includes prairie and woodland restoration along with the installation of a larger irrigation pond. Students enrolled in the 10 month program will each have a quarter acre of land to manage according to their particular business plans. The groundbreaking ceremony will feature local dignitaries, a discussion of the design and a program overview. The public is invited to attend." God, one day I would love to be known as a "local dignitary". ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com mailto:FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <salsunshineiniowa@...> wrote : On Oct 21, 2016, at 11:23 AM, dhamiltony2k5@... mailto:dhamiltony2k5@...
