Ashcroft to Visit Missouri State Fair, Attend Governor’s Ham Breakfast
Jefferson City, Mo. — Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft will visit the Missouri State Fair tomorrow and join Gov. Mike Parson, other elected officials and agricultural leaders at the 66th annual Governor’s Ham Breakfast, which begins at 8 a.m. at the state fairgrounds in Sedalia.
“The breakfast is a great chance for Missourians to meet their elected officials and talk with them in a more casual setting,” Ashcroft said. “I’m excited to visit with people from around the state and hear their stories.”
After the breakfast, Ashcroft will tour the fair, visiting a number of booths and talking with fairgoers.
Meal tickets for the breakfast are sold out, but attendees can still purchase tickets to get inside the director’s tent, which will house the breakfast.
The Secretary of State’s Office is also hosting a booth in the agriculture building for the duration of the fair, which ends on Sunday, Aug. 19.
