The guest of honor was former presidential candidate Bob Dole, but
the star of the Purdue Ag Alumni Fish Fry just may have been the show's
new home, West Lafayette's Cumberland Place.
"This is an excellent change," says Richard Ward, BS '43,
a Montgomery County farmer and Ag Alumni board member who helped oversee
the Fish Fry's move from the Purdue Armory to its off-campus location.
"This is a change that is long overdue. The facilities are just
beautiful. I don't know how you would improve it. I have been an advocate
of change for three or four years, but you don't change things overnight."
