From the Desk of the Executive Director
Welcome to October and the final few weeks of  SeptOberfest ! It is finally beginning to feel like fall around here, and we cannot wait to see the changing leaf colors and take in everything this season offers. There are still plenty of events taking place for  SeptOberfest , so make sure you stop Under the Bridge  every weekend  for carriage rides, music, and more, and enjoy some of the  seasonal meals  many of our great restaurants are offering.

Have a great October and, as always, please reach out if there is anything I may assist you with.

All the best,
Chrissy Dawson
Executive Director

They work just like a gift certificate, but lets the receiver decide where to spend the money. Chamber Bucks can be used at any local business that is a member of the Wabasha-Kellogg Chamber of Commerce or taken to First State Bank to be cashed.
