The season was busy for us here at GD&T with many big events, including Stars and Stripes, RAGBRAI, and Celebrate Guttenberg. Several tour groups have come to visit Guttenberg via bus and river boat in just the past few weeks. Events like these showcase Guttenberg and remind us that we should be so proud of our community - a community in which we can count on each other to lend a hand. These events bring thousands of visitors to our town, giving exposure to Guttenberg businesses, attractions, and activities. I have received countless positive comments on these events, the beauty of our town, and the helpfulness and friendliness of our residents.
We are excited to welcome new members to GD&T: Lindsanator’s Liquor, Greaser’s Drive-In, Blooming Branches, River’s Edge Bakery, and the Reinitz Haus. It has been great to work with business owners that I’ve known for years and get to know several that are new to town. We will kick off our membership drive for 2015 at the October Business After Five event. We’re starting a little early this year to make sure that all of our members and any of their events are included in our new promotional materials, including brochures, business directories, our website, and the Calendar of Events. All businesses, members or not, are invited to attend this Business After Five to learn about what GD&T offers. More details will follow. As always, don’t hesitate to contact me at the Welcome Center: 563-252-2323 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
