The Norwalk Area Chamber of Commerce will have its fall event on Friday, Nov. 15, featuring live music with Chris Ranallo, lasagna dinner prepared by the Norwalk High School culinary arts class, wines from Madison County Covered Bridges Winery and Prairie Moon Winery from the Ames area along with Las Vegas-type games. Two dollars from every ticket sold will go to the Norwalk Student Education Foundation. The event starts at 5:30 p.m. and is being held at the Wright Place. Ticket price is $25 per person. Raffle tickets will also be for sale at the event.
Our next event will be on Sunday, Dec. 1. It is our third annual lighting of the big Christmas tree that is located on the corner of Main Street and Highway 28 (Sunset Drive). We will have kids activities, hot chocolate, Christmas songs sung by members of the Norwalk High School choir, and a special guest will be there, too. This event starts at 5 p.m., and everyone is invited to attend. It is a great way to wrap up your Thanksigiving holiday and get ready for the Christmas holidays.
Congratulations to all the people who won in the city council election. We hope with a new mayor and council members we can keep moving forward to making Norwalk noticeable and attract businesses and people to adopt Norwalk as their new home.
Our membership drive for 2014 is currently underway, so if you are interested in joining the Norwalk Area Chamber of Commerce, please give us a call, email us or just drop in. You do not have to be in a business to join, as we have a few individuals who are members, and your business does not have to be located in Norwalk as we have several members who either do business in Norwalk or they live in Norwalk.
Remember to Shop Local! Shop Norwalk, especially this holiday season.
