Greetings from Growing Family Fun. This is the first edition of our new electronic newsletter.

This fall marks the fifth year for the corn maze at Growing Family Fun. The season runs weekends from Saturday, Sept. 5 through Saturday, Oct. 31.

Early bird reservations
We are now taking group reservations for this fall. If you have not tried our group experience, we ask for 10 paid admissions. Bring your own food and enjoy the camaraderie around the LP-firepit and a group hayride. Please contact us on the Web site or via e-mail to reserve a firepit for fall 2009. There is a $5 group fee for use of the firepit payable at check-in.

New for ’09
Save some dough and help the community by participating in the Share the Bounty food drive. Bring a nonperishable food item and receive $1 off your corn maze admission (limit 1 food item/person).

Maze Royalty
Congratulations to staff member Angie Plager for being selected Ms. Wheelchair Iowa.

Go Green
Farmer Darrell acquired his wish: a John Deere A tractor to use for hayrides. He brought the tractor home from Buffalo, Minnesota, this summer, gave it new tires and drove it in the Ankeny Summerfest parade.
