Looking out the Depot windows this fine Saturday morning, you sure can see that the sun is out!  And, it promises to actually be warm!  Our Chamber webcam shows the city dumptrucks parked in the Depot park lot, as today is Friends of the Iron Belle Trail clean-up day, from 9-11.   When I got here this morning at 7 there were already folks hiking the trail!   More than ever before, this "mile 0" section of the Iron Belle Trail is going to see heavy use this year, now that it is possible to walk/bike all the way to Bessemer on the paved trail.  This past week I put away all the "snow" cards in our display racks and put up the trail, Porkies, and Lake Gogebic Times for this year.   I might even put away that snow shovel today!   One other thought of Spring besides trail hiking:  clean-up!  The Chamber's City Wide Rummage Sale will be on Saturday June 3.  On this website, under "events" you can find the registration form to download and mail in here to the Chamber.   Whether you are on the hiking trail or on the "rummage trail" this Spring Ironwood is the place to be!   

Come out next week to the Gogebic County Fair, Thursday through Sunday, and stop by the Gogebic Chambers of Commerce booth in the Exposition Building.  We are only two booths up from the 4-H ice cream booth, and we welcome ice cream eaters as well!   Each Gogebic Chamber will have business cards, brochures, flyers, and maps that showcase the wide range of economic enterprises that make Gogebic county the place to visit and the place to have a home.  The Ironwood Chamber will have a special table in the booth, where Summer Raffle tickets will be sold (only $5 each, with prizes of $1,000, 500, 250, 100, and 50 to be awarded at the annual Chamber picnic in September) and where Hiawatha Statue Restoration contributions will be gratefully accepted.  See you at the Fair!!
