The Hamilton County Fair Foundation will host their annual Sundaes on Sunday event February 2, 2014 at the Webster City Middle School.

The sundaes feature hot roast beef prepared by the Hamilton County Cattlemen's group with mashed potatoes and gravy, topped with shredded cheese and a cherry tomato. Fresh baked cookies will top off the meal.

Tickets are $8 and are available at the door or in the drive-up lane located at the rear door of the middle school. Diners can eat in the middle school commons or carryout. Serving runs from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

More than 160 Hamilton County farmers and businessmen banded together in 1919 to have W. J. Zitterell build the Sales Pavilion and Stock Barn on the Hamilton County Fairgrounds. The Fair Foundation has an on-going project to restore the historic buildings. They hope to have these “Ads On The Wall”, which were painted between 1919 and 1929, restored in time for the Fair’s 100th Anniversary in 2018.

Erin Anderson, 2014 Fair Queen, will provide one of her scrumptious pies for silent auction.

The event celebrates the generosity of Fairground supporters in providing funds to build the Hamilton County Events Center.

Foundation members continue in their quest to restore the 1919 Sales Pavilion and Stock Barn. The Burt and Fern Richardson family recently donated funding to provide a new floor surface for the Sales Pavilion. The Pavilion walls and the "Ads On The Wall" are also slated for restoration.

The Hamilton County Fair Foundation is a volunteer group formed in 2000 to aid in improving and promoting the Hamilton County Fairgrounds in Webster City.

In addition to the Hamilton County Cattlemen providing and cooking the choice roast beef, the Hamilton County senior 4-H group will also lend assistance.
