Posted: Updated:
INDIANOLA (KWWL) -

Senator Tom Harkin announced Monday that his 37th and final Steak Fry will feature President Bill Clinton and his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. It will be President Clinton's fourth steak fry and his wife's second.

In a written statement, Harkin said, "That's why I couldn't be happier than to share this special day with two such close friends. They have contributed so much good, inspiring leadership to this country for many years, and I am sure they will continue to do so in the years ahead."

The Harkin Steak Fry, which has become a signature political event in Iowa, was first held on a farm in Madison County. Past guests include President Barack Obama, Vice Presidents Joe Biden and Al Gore, Senators Paul Wellstone, Al Franken and Bernie Sanders, Governor Martin O'Malley, now-HUD Secretary Julian Castro and all of the major Democratic presidential candidates in 2003 and 2007.

The 37th and final event will be held Sunday, September 14th from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Indianola Balloon Field.

General admission tickets are $30 and include refreshments and a steak dinner. For tickets, to get directions or learn more, visit www.TomHarkin.com or call 515-277-9966.
