As a business owner in downtown Marshalltown, I want to extend thanks to many others who help make the heart of Marshalltown sparkle for the holidays.
First, thank you to the city and a raft of volunteers who teamed up to hang the banners and greens on the light posts. This really makes the historic downtown district look festive, especially at night!
To the Marshalltown Noon Optimists, thank you for once again making the courthouse square look like a wonderland!
When Fisher Controls lights Santa and his sleigh over Center Street, it feels like the holiday season is official. Thank you, Fisher Controls, for a wonderful tradition!
To all the volunteers and participants who helped make the 20th Annual Holiday Stroll a success, please accept warm thanks!
To my neighbors - the retailers, restaurants and agencies throughout downtown Marshalltown - the holiday sparkle you have added to your businesses is noticed and appreciated!
And finally, to our friends and business associates, thank you for your support of small business!
