On the last day of my visit with the Schlutz family, I went with them to a talk being given by the Governor of Iowa, Terry Branstad and Lieutenant Governor, Kim Reynolds. They had been in the area giving talks on the drought-stricken parts of the state and were then given a tour of the Grimm Brothers Plastic Factory, where I attended, in the eastern part of the state. A breif talk was given by them both after the tour, and afterwards people in the auidience were free to ask questions about a number of issues. After the Q & A session was held, I was lucky enough to be able to meet them both!
A brush with fame!
