Kraus reviews summer of events

Sep 02, 2015

To the editor:

We have had a tremendous summer of events at the Mt. Pleasant Area Chamber Alliance, which could not have been done without the countless volunteers, elected officials, sponsors, donors, and great people in our community. We are incredibly grateful to the individuals and organizations that support our efforts to make Mt. Pleasant and Henry County fun and vibrant places to live. Thank you! We really could not do it without you.

The Rock Around the Block series hosted by the Mt. Pleasant Area Chamber of Commerce, in particular, was a great success (awesome weather didn’t hurt!). We received a lot of positive feedback about our August concert, which also was part of the kickoff for the Iowa Wesleyan University academic year. With so many college students in Central Park, August’s Rock Around the Block was a great example of the community and university integration that lifts up the entire community. Thank you to everyone that came out and made that a special event, and to the IWU administration for their leadership.

As usual, sponsors of the Rock Around the Block really stepped up with both their investment and their time. I appreciate that in Mt. Pleasant you can see company logos on the marketing materials, and company representatives themselves working the volunteer stations. Please be sure to thank our many sponsors for helping make these community events possible by looking local first.

Big thanks once again to the sponsors of the 2015 Rock Around the Block Series, without whom the concerts wouldn’t be possible: Family Dental Health Services, MP Municipal Utilities, Kempker’s True Value, Temp Associates, CARE at Home Iowa, IWU, Mt. Pleasant Electric, WEMIGA, Brad Holtkamp Automotive, Henry County Democrats, Geode Energy, West Liberty Foods, Team Staffing Solutions, Quality Equipment, Refreshment Service-Pepsi, Golden Eagle Distributing, the REC Center, Community 1st Credit Union, Farm Credit Service of America, Pilot Grove Savings Bank, Two Rivers Bank & Trust, US Bank, Wayland State Bank, and Henry County Farm Bureau.
