State Parties

More than 70 attended Iowa party

Gary Astor

More than 70 SunBird residents with Iowa “roots” gathered for the Iowa State Fair West Party on Tuesday, March 13, which was held on the SunBird patio. Food, Fun and Fellowship was had by all and during the evening, many raffle prizes were awarded. Among some of the favorites were a number of CDs by Iowa songster Dennis Caraher, t-shirts and items from Iowa State University and University of Iowa, along with bottles of Iowa barbecue sauce and Iowa wine, dinner tickets to the SunBird Horizon Room and gift card from SunBird Golf Club.

Next year, we are planning an Iowa Mardi Gras Party to be held on Shrove Tuesday, March 5, 2019. This will be held on the SunBird patio again from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. Please plan to join us. Anyone with Iowa “roots” or friends of Iowa residents are welcome to attend. A sign-up sheet will be placed in the SunBird Library next February to register your plans to attend. Anyone with questions may call either Pauline Caraher, Iowa Party Chairperson, at 602-292-7858 or Dr. Gary Astor at 515-570-1382.
