Ankeny's Bill Campfield will break from museum duties to spend a day as an honored guest touring the fairgrounds.
...
Bill Campfield of Ankeny hasn't seen much of the Iowa State Fair for someone who has been there nearly every day it has been open for the past five years.
That changes this year.
As superintendent of the Richard L. Easter Museum Complex, Campfield will still spend most of the fair there, supervising volunteers and answering questions about fair history as he has since 2002.
On Wednesday, however, he gets to take a break.
In late July, Campfield was named an Iowan of the Day honoree for this year's fair.He will not only have Wednesday off, but also the use of a golf cart - great for making up lost ground.
"It was a total surprise to me - and I don't know why (I was chosen)," Campfield, 75, said on a recent afternoon.
"It was a pleasant surprise," his wife, Judy, interjected.
Pleasant, indeed.
In addition to the golf cart, Campfield will enjoy a free night's stay at the Downtown Des Moines Marriott and receive grandstand tickets and $200 cash.
He will be introduced at 2:15 p.m. Wednesday on the Anne and Bill Riley Stage at the fairgrounds.
The Iowan of the Day program is now in its 10th year of honoring individuals who have made significant contributions to their communities.
John Putney, executive director of the Blue Ribbon Foundation, which raises money for restoration projects at the fair, said the award is often given to volunteers such as Campfield who tirelessly labor without public recognition.
...
Campfield, who spent 12 years of his career working at John Deere in Ankeny, has been attending the State Fair since he can remember, dating back to 1936.And what he can't remember directly he has probably heard of through his role as museum superintendent or in his research.
Campfield started volunteering for the Blue Ribbon Foundation in 1993.He later became the driving force behind the creation of a history book about the fair.He did much of the research for "Our State Fair: Iowa's Blue Ribbon Story," which was published in 2000.
"It's something I always wanted to see," he said.
