Samuel Adams

American Patriot & Politician

1722 - 1803

If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.

Hot Issues From Linn County Iowa
Wednesday, 29 July 2015

Some of us made a Road Trip recently to the Lee County Fund Raiser.

It is to tell the truth something I look forward to,

We have been doing this for years,

It is nice to get out, support other Counties, Network and see what they do to make an effective event. 

One thing that is constant

The Fund Raiser is always the Last Saturday in July

That Continuity IMO makes it an effective event

How effective?

Take a look.


They had about 220 people show up.

They had to pull in some extra tables.

Now the Tickets were $25 and the meal, which was quite tasty btw cost them $15.

They also had an auction.

Some of the Pies brought as much  as $100.

Tha might surprise some people, but this has become a tradition and there are people who every year compete with each other to see who will get the best pies. 


I would say the Auction probably paid for the Room and extra expenses with something left over

I expect Lee County might have cleared between $2000 and $3000 on their event at a guess

Now remember they are about 1/4 the size of Linn County and it is in heavy Democrat Terrritory. 

Linn County also had a fund raiser recently

Our Chili Cook Off

Which in the last 3 years has been held in the Spring, the Fall and the dead of Summer this year at the Linn County Fair


Unfortunately each time we have moved the Chili Cook Off the Take on it has gone down

The Good News is that we already have a Winter Event so the Chili Cook Off will have to stay in Spring, Summer or Fall. 


Some may not agree, but it seems to me Continuity Works

It creates Traditions that can be built upon

Moving things around all the time?

Does not create stability

Deciding when to do something at the last minute does not help either

Before there was even mention of doing the Cook Off at the County Fair I for one had already made a commitment for that Saturday

The October before I was actully 1/6th of their ticket sales.
