Can you believe it? Summer is practically here! Where in the world has the time gone? We are so excited for the upcoming summer season and all the great things happening in Wabasha and Kellogg.
May was a great month, even with all the rain and storms we had. I want to give a special shout out to all the volunteers who helped make the spring show for Grandpa's Barn such a success - we could not have done it without your help!

June marks the start of summer, and what better time is there to get outside and enjoy the warmer weather! Make sure to visit our website for the latest news and upcoming events. If you have any questions, or if there is anything I can help you with, please give us a call at (651) 565-4158, or stop on by our office on Main Street.
All the best,
Chrissy Dawson
Executive Director
Wabasha-Kellogg Area Chamber of Commerce and CVB
