MINOT, N.D. — The North Dakota Coordinating Council of Cooperatives (NDCCC) is teaming up with KX News to host KX/Co-op Day at the North Dakota State Fair (NDSF) on Wednesday, July 24. The event will include a free pancake breakfast and ice cream social. Fair goers can also benefit from coupons for discounted gate admission, carnival rides and rodeo tickets.

“KX/Co-op Day is a day we look forward to every year,” say General Manager and Executive Vice President Josh Kramer, NDAREC. “Co-ops have a large economic impact on the state of North Dakota. We power our members’ homes and businesses, keep them connected, help finance their dreams and so much more. This event brings many of the state’s co-ops together and provides an opportunity for us to celebrate the work of North Dakota’s cooperatives.” 

Co-op employees will serve a hot breakfast in the parking lot north of the Commercial II building from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. From 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., co-ops will have booths under a tent in the State Fair Park.
