Presenting for "The Season"

This morning, 3/13/19, with its above freezing temperatures, drizzle, and uncompromisingly dangerous wet-ice "walk path" (glide path) into the Chamber Depot Office, is a strong reminder that "The Season" is beginning its start for Ironwood and the Gogebic Range.  "The Season," of course, refers to a) return of snow-bird residents, b) melting of snow, c) the shift from ski to bike/walk, d) the planning of trips here by people who live elsewhere, and d) both a period of "break" as well as "plan" for local businesses and organizations for whom "The Season" is the principal time of full-range outdoor activity.   Yesterday, Chamber received two calls from Chicago area folks wanting planning information on August events and weather.  These calls (and emails) will now start to increase, and do provide a daily nudge that warm, sun, and action-packed long-daylight days are coming very soon.  With all of this in mind, our Ironwood City Wide Rummage Sale will be on Saturday, June 1.   Please see our website "events" to download the 2019 registration form!
