Fall Feel Good: Farmers Edition is complete! 😀 We have been able to reach 100 farmers this month with this campaign! 😮 It really has been great getting to be out in the community, touring the backroads of Guthrie County, and visiting with all the farmers. We hope that we have made some sort of impact with the people that were nominated and the items they received. 😊

Again, we weren't able to get everyone's pictures but we snapped some! (The last picture is a sneak peek at some of the items)

Thanks to everyone willing to stop for a couple minutes to let us deliver your goodies to you! #StrongIowa

10/13/2020

People experiencing homelessness may be eligible for a $1,200 Economic Impact Payment and $500 for each qualifying child under age 17. To get this payment, they must register with the IRS by using the free Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info tool by Saturday, November 21, 2020.

If someone's income is below $12,200, or $24,400 if they're married, they probably don't file a tax return. That means the IRS may not have enough information to issue their payment.

The free tool is available in English and Spanish at https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/non-filers-enter-payment-info-here

Please promote the Facebook Live on the Guthrie County Fair page. People need to be aware of this way to view the judging. Thank You. And we're not all aware of what/where Facebook Live is......so you might add a few directions for those who have never used it. Thank You to those individuals responsible for the filming! Awesome!
