Spirit Lake Chamber to hold Hometown Heroes event August 14 

The Spirit Lake Chamber of Commerce is hosting a Hometown Heroes Event and Community Gathering on Wednesday evening.

Nancy Vierkant, Director of Membership and Events says, over 30 businesses and services will be on hand.  "You're going to be able to come and take your picture with the firetrucks and police car and ambulance, some of those things that you would expect, but we're also going to have things like a race car from Jackson Motorplex, we're gonna be having Ruthven Locker, the banks are all gonna be there.  We're also going to have services from Lakes Regional Healthcare, come and meet your doctors, there's gonna be boom trucks from the electric companies in town.  We have such a wide variety of places that are coming out to really make those connections with our community that we can get up close to and find out lots of things maybe that we don't quite know that our community even has to offer, so we're really excited about that."

She adds that food will be available at the event.  "It is a free event, open to the public.  We are gonna have Kiwanis grilling some hot dogs, chips, cookies that will be a free will donation.  We are going to do that for the first 200, so we're looking at it like a picnic, with all those big vehicles and then there will be the center where all the different companies and businesses are going to be showcasing what they all have to offer for our community."

The Hometown Heroes Event will be held at the Spirit Lake Elementary School Parking Lot on Wednesday from 5-7 pm.
