“The State Treasurer’s Office is committed to connecting citizens with their property,” said State Treasurer Curtis Loftis.  “It only took a few minutes to step away from the rides, stop by our booth and see if you, or your business has money waiting to be claimed.

 Staff helped people find money by looking to see if they had any unclaimed property in their name. "The best part about checking your name is that it's free!" added Treasurer Loftis.
