2014 Progress edition
This special 22-page section in today’s edition of The Fairfield Ledger includes stories and photos that celebrate Fairfield’s rich 175-year history.
2014 is a special year for many businesses and institutions in town. It marks the 80th birthday of Iowa State Bank and Trust Company. It is the 40th anniversary of Maharishi International University’s move from Santa Barbara, California, to the former campus of Parsons College. Duke’s Yamaha Kawasaki opened its doors a half century ago and is still going strong. Creative Edge Master Shop has been an industry leader in manufacturing for the past quarter century. The Dairy Bar has provided residents with cold treats on warm summer days for more than 60 years.
Though the year is a time to reflect on past accomplishments, it is also a time to plan for future greatness. Schaus-Vorhies Contracting has grown tremendously in three decades and shows no signs of slowing down. Studio 100 Hair Salon doubled the size of its shop this year to accommodate its booming customer demand.
