As part of Small Business Week in Minnesota (May 3rd — May 9th), we are highlighting the Small Businesses here in our community! As part of a new Chamber initiative to kick off Small Business week, as well as feature the businesses that keep our community vibrant, we are going to recognize and feature a different Chamber Member business every day this week.
A decision was made to CANCEL the annual Kids Day, Take a Kid Fishing and Bike Rodeo on Saturday, June 6th due to the COVID-19 Virus. With the size of this event and the many activities we would not be able to follow the social distancing and other guidelines to keep everyone safe. We plan to celebrate KIDS DAY again June 5th, 2021.
NOTE TO BUSINESSES THAT DISPLAY THE WELCOME TABLE CARDS:
DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC AND MANY EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES BEING CANCELLED THIS SUMMER, THE WELCOME CENTER ADVISORY BOARD MADE THE DECISION THAT THE TABLE CARDS WILL NOT BE PRINTED FOR THE SUMMER MONTHS. WE ARE HOPEFUL THAT WE WILL PRINT AND DISPLAY THEM AGAIN THIS FALL.
