Are you using our community calendar?

Local organizations, churches and clubs are encouraged to use the online community calendar on the estherville.org website. The calendar was launched in September by the Estherville Area Chamber of Commerce and Excel! Estherville. It was a priority for both organizations to provide a one-stop calendar for those looking for something to do as well as those wanting to schedule an event without conflicting with other similar events.

Anyone running an event or fundraiser in Estherville or Emmet County is urged to look at the events calendar when considering a specific date to avoid conflicts. All are also encouraged to submit their events as soon as they are scheduled to assist others who are planning an event. Anyone can submit an event at no charge – please visit www.estherville.org and click on “Events Calendar”. For questions, please contact the Chamber on 362 3541.

Ambassador visits

Do you have a new staff member, or are you relocating your business? We need extra eyes and ears in order to stay on top of things for our Ambassador visits. If you have hired a new staff member and would like the Ambassadors to come visit your business, please call the Chamber on 362 3541!
