Bremer County Fair Board members gratefully celebrated the life of long time board member, John Droste, on September 16th, 2013. It is unlikely that any fair goer of the last decade has - knowingly or not - attended without benefiting from John's passion for our Fair. John served in whatever capacity he could - from pouring concrete for sidewalks or starting the park bench memorial program to serving as Secretary/Manager for many, many years. John has the disctinct honor of having a fair building named in his honor, a city building named in his honor and a building at Cattle Congress named in his honor just this year for his long involvement in the Dairy Hall of Breeds. John's long association with the Fair and his memory of the history will leave us with a void that just won't be filled. We will honor his memory by continuing his passon for the youth of Bremer County.
