The Missouri State Fair is underway in Sedalia, MO.

We're proud to once again sponsor the Pig Races, held every day in the large tent next to the Dairy Center. Come watch the piggies race around the track for an Oreo cookie!

Our team will also be in attendance on August 11, 13 and 20 with plenty of balloons and temporary tattoos for the young and young-at-heart.

Socket employees raised $271.72 for the 9th annual Back 2 School Bash in Hallsville!

This event, sponsored by the Hallsville Inter-Church Council, provides school supplies free of charge to approximately 500 area children. It will be held Saturday, August 6, at Tribble Park.

You see, the cause is an important one to our friend Ralph, who provides janitorial services for our Columbia office. Ralph shows up here at 5:30 AM every day to clean up our messes and keep the place looking great. So this is our way of saying thanks.

It's almost time for the Missouri State Fair!

Socket is once again sponsoring the Pig Races at the Fair, and to celebrate, we're giving away tickets to Lynyrd Skynyrd, Championship Bull Riding, and the sold out Jason Aldean concert.
