The Big Show was live on location with a broadcast sponsored by Growmark at Kirkwood Community. Together with Kirkwood, Trees Forever, Hughes Nursery, and special appearances from Governor Kim Reynolds and Iowa Secretary of Agriculture, Mike Naig, a ceremonial first tree was planted on Kirkwood's campus as a symbol for the start of the recovery from the August 10th Derecho. See some of the photos from the event, as well as listen to parts of the broadcast below.
