2017 Ag Tourat
Join us on  Wednesday, August 30 for the  2017 Ag Tour  at the Cedar Valley Produce Auction in Elma, Iowa and Stillwater Greenhouse in Orchard, Iowa. Fresh, local produce is a sought after luxury in North Iowa. Do any of these statements connect with you?
  • I want the freshest food possible.
  • I am concerned about the distance my food travels before reaching my plate.
  • I want to support my local farmers and support local economy.
If one or more of the above statements rings true for you, you won't want to miss this year's Ag Tour!

The group will depart by bus from the lower Southbridge Mall parking lot in Mason City at 8AM on Wednesday, August 30.
Please contact  Kativa for more information.

"Building Our Brand" Mural Project bob

We are happy to announce that we've received grant funding for a pilot mural project! The concept is to "build" our brand as an architectural destination by painting the rear facades (which  serve as our front door to Downtown) with geometric designs in the spirit of Frank Lloyd Wright's Prairie School. An MFA  student from the University of Iowa will be in Mason City soon to start work on the back of the Brick Furniture building. 

We are in need of scaffolding for this project. If you can help us  out, please contact  Robin Anderson at the Chamber for details.

Wellness Tipwt

August 3rd is  Watermelon Day ! Watermelon is nearly 92% water, and it's full of  great vitamins which can relax sore muscles. Even the green rind of the fruit is edible when stewed, fried, or pickled. If watermelon's not your favorite, head over to the  North Iowa Farmers Market , on  Tuesdays  and Fridays for other delicious produce options!
