The second annual Regional Development Tour is being held on Thursday, June 15, 2017!
This collaborative event is led by CEDA (Community and Economic Development Associates) and J2G (Journey to Growth). The tour provides an opportunity for individuals and organizations who are potentially interested in commercial investment to learn about multiple communities within the southeastern Minnesota region. In one afternoon, participants will talk directly with economic development professionals, community leaders, and decision makers in each of the featured communities: Chatfield, Eyota, Lewiston, and St. Charles.
By participation, you will come away with a heightened awareness of the assets in the toured communities and excitement for regional development opportunities. Does this sound like a fit for you or your business? Email email@example.com. Only 10 spots left!

Memorial Day is about honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. The freedom we enjoy is a result of their service and we owe them a debt of gratitude that can never be repaid.
