We Couldn’t Do It Without…
Winneshiek County Development & Tourism Special thanks to Steph, Lora, Kristin, and the Board of Directors for providing major support to Decorah Now both over the past year and at a moment’s notice!
Volunteers! So many people have jumped in with both feet and are helping get this off the ground. Not sure how to list them all here, and you definitely won’t find us all in the same place at the same time (yet!), but we are incredibly appreciative to live in the same community as all of these folks!
Lauren Bonney Huge thanks to Lauren for making the network a logo in record time!
