Community News: All Things Italian and The Roches

Our corporate headquarters is located in Fairfield, Iowa. This past weekend Fairfield was host to 2 wonderful events that add charm and interest for residents and visitors alike.

* ALL THINGS ITALIAN The first event was the All Things Italian edition of First Friday's Artwalk. This was hosted, sponsored, supported, created by SOFIA, the Society of Fairfield Italian Americans led by the irrepresible Dick DeAngelis. Looking at the list of events and artists and bakers and cooks and musicians and galleries and merchants...you'd think the whole town of 10,000 had parents from Italy.

This year's event was twice as large as last year's. Thousands from around the area in Iowa attended as nearly everyone in Fairfield. The weather was perfect. The food delicious. The art inspiring. the music charming and the company...the entire community...was wonderful. It just shows you what you can do with an inspired community and an inspired, charismatic leader.

You can find pictures from the event here.

* The Roches. The 2nd event was an evening with The Roches. The Roches are a trio of sisters who've played together and recorded together for...30 years? Is it that long? You'd never know it from the power of their performance, the beauty of their harmonies and the ease they share with each other on the stage and with the crowd.

Or...that last part, the ease they share with each other, only comes with time. So, you may recognize their longevity from that ease and spontaneity they share on stage.

And they graciously shared their singing, playing, humor, charming and touching lyrics with a crowd of devoted fans Saturday night at our local Cafe Paradiso. This was the first concert we sponsored here in Fairfield together with the owners of Cafe Paradiso. We see it as a corporate responsibility to invest in our community with events like this. We expect to sponsor a few more such events this summer with Cafe Paradiso.  Here's a photo from the concert:
