A Message from the 2008 P
resident, Wendell Noble


The underdog NY Giants won the super bowl. It started a year of upsets that no one would have
predicted. Obama and McCain won over the favorites in their respective parties. Followed by
Obama defeating McCain in the presidential

election, the ultimate winning by an underdog.


In the world’s eyes we are the underdog, the global economy is the worst since the great
depression, but I have faith that our country can turn it around and become a country that uses
renewable, sustainable

energy, as the next great economic driver.


Now the highlights closer to home in Lake City, the last year’s successes!




As a membership, we were able to educate citizens about the structure and importance of
a viable EDA. Thanks to the Lake City Chamber,

members the EDA and its board still
exists!



One of my biggest accomplishments as President is the two
-
hour boat parking agreement
with the Chamber. Thanks, Mark!



The Chamber and Tourism Bureau announced a new event! Tour de Pepin was a
regional success!



On a day in April, ANNE & I GOT MARRIED! That was, for me, one of the best days
of the year, and the party in July was fun too! Ask Pat & Steph Murphy what day it was?



WATER SKI DAYS had something new on Sunday morning, June 29
th
! PROJECT
PINK 5K FUN R
UN/WALK was added at the Jewel Golf Course addition. Co
-
sponsored by Lake City Medical Center & Lake City Rotary Club. Lake City was truly
in the PINK!



It was the Ambassador group that led the way as we helped businesses be recognized for
their milestone
. I am proud that when I started working with the Chamber I helped found
the Chamber Ambassador group.



I ran for a seat on the City Council, I made it to the general election, but was defeated. I
learned a lot, and made new friends along the way.



My bett
er half, Anne Noble started a business called Life in Lavender. I am proud to say
that she is a Chamber member.



I started a consulting company, A & W Consulting and plan on going public in the spring
of 2009, and am also a Chamber member.



We changed some
things with the tourism bureau. I believe the change was needed and
am proud that it was done under my year as President, regardless of the outcome.


I knew that when I took the job I had some big shoes to fill, Past
-
President Jeff Erickson,
THANK YOU! A
nd thanks to all the past presidents that were willing to share their wealth of
knowledge. Kurt Schreck will lead the Chamber with honesty, integrity, and a unique ability to
feel both sides of an issue. He will do a great job!


As we take time to reflec
t on a year gone by, and I hand over the reins, I want to thank the
Chamber board, Nancy, Tracy, Bridget, Cheryl, Carol, Jeff, Mike, Gordy, and Kurt, along with
Robyn and Emma, and especially Mary for making 2008 a year we are all proud of.


Thank you,


We
ndell Noble

2008 Lake City Chamber of Commerce President

A Message from the Incoming President


Before we move forward to the opportunities of 2009, I would like to recognize the
efforts and performance of our Chamber staff, board of directors, and member
ship for
their tireless support, dedication, creativity, and perhaps most importantly, patience as
we navigated the challenging year that was 2008. Also I would like to extend a special
thank you to the volunteers of the 2008 festivals and events committe
es, the Chamber
Ambassadors, Retail Action Team, Tourism Bureau and the Manufacturers/Large
Employers Group. The successes of their respective projects are clear evidence of their
inspired efforts and exemplary teamwork.

To outgoing President Wendell Nob
le, I would like to extend my sincere appreciation.
From the very beginning of his term Wendell set out to create and maintain an inclusive
and collaborative environment for the Chamber organization. His emphasis on
collaboration provided excellent exper
iences to draw on, while I contemplated the
upcoming challenges and responsibilities of leading the Chamber in 2009.

We scarcely need to be reminded of the challenges facing us in 2009. I have always
believed that the biggest challenges provide the bigges
t opportunities. Lake City’s
unique array of assets makes it better equipped to thrive in even a difficult economic
climate. A few initiatives that I hope to emphasize over the next eleven months:

Realignment of Highway 61 to a continuous three
-
lane road
way within our city
limits, with emphasis on spurring downtown revitalization and improved access
to lakefront.

Investigating and supporting efforts toward developing a more regional
economy, with particular focus on “new agriculture” and better collaborat
ion
with neighboring market communities, particularly those river communities on
the shores of Lake Pepin.

Continue 2008 progress in providing service to our industrial and manufacturing
members as they adapt to substantial market changes in 2009 and beyo
nd.

Leverage the phenomenal first year experience of the Tour de Pepin, growing
and refining this signature event and educating the community and region on its
potential for desirable, orderly economic development.

I am proud of the commitment and resilie
ncy shown by our board of directors and
Chamber staff in 2008, dealing with extremely difficult and unpopular issues. Although
I expect entirely different opportunities, the personal and professional development that
I witnessed with these groups will ser
ve us well in 2009.

I hope to earn your confidence, support and most importantly, your involvement for the
Chamber in its important work for the membership and the community in 2009.

Respectfully,

J. Kurt Schreck

2008 FESTIVALS


WATER SKI DAYS



Wat
er Ski Days turned out to be a great weekend in spite of the rain
we got on Saturday morning! We had to cancel one or two events, but we
still ended up adding more! The new events this year included Bingo
sponsored by Impact Wrestling all three days, and

the 5K Fun Run/Walk
on Sunday sponsored by Lake City Medical Center and Rotary Club.
These two events were very successful and hopefully we can have them
again in 2009. We almost sold out of buttons again, for the second year in
a row! This shows great

community support for this festival. New and
improved events are always great to see for Water Ski Days. This allows
for some change and more family events in there, since it has been going
on for 37 years! Planning is already under
-
way for the 38
th

An
nual Water
Ski Days! If you have any ideas or want to work on the committee feel free
to contact the Chamber.



JOHNNY APPLESEED DAYS



Johnny Appleseed Days was also another great success! We had a
little rain on Sunday of this event as well. Even tho
ugh we had to cancel
the inflatable rides for kids on Sunday, it was even more successful
financially than the previous year! It was great to have all of Wild Wings
Fall Festival events at Patton Park and City Hall this year, so the two
festivals could jo
in and create one common area for people to go.
Thankfully our baby girl decided to come 3 days after Johnny Appleseed
Days instead of on her due date 3 days before Johnny Appleseed Days, so I
was able to be around that weekend to help! We would love to
add more
activities for this festival as well, so again, feel free to attend the planning
meetings starting in July!

Chamber Events Coordinator





Retail Action Team, 2008

By Jil Garry, Chair


During its second year as a Chamber of Commerc
e entity, the Retail Action Team continued its
mission of generating sales for our retail shops, especially in the off
-
season.


Girl’s Day Out is a retail event that we created to generate traffic between Easter and Mother’s
Day. Our Girls Day Out in 200
7 was a beautiful spring day. 2008 brought us horrible weather,
which reduced the number of customers participating, but some shops still had increased sales
over the Girls Day Out of 2007!


The Holiday Gathering is our holiday season kick
-
off and it is h
eld on the Saturday before
Thanksgiving weekend so that we aren’t competing with Red Wing’s event and the big box
Thanksgiving weekend specials. We had 22 Chamber member shops participate this year!
Through our team effort we were again able to project to

local residents and shoppers from
nearby towns that we do indeed have shops in Lake City.



In addition to our retail promotions, this team recognizes the impact of other events on our
business environment. Our partnership with the EDA is invaluable to u
s. We expressed our
concern about proposed changes to the city charter by organizing a low key “Vote no on #4”
campaign so that business leaders who live outside the city boundaries can continue to serve on
the EDA board.



Our “shop local” campaign for
2008 resulted in another team being formed to “Strengthen Our
Local Economy” (SOLE). I asked three non
-
retailer stakeholders to participate and all three
enthusiastically answered the challenge, asking you to “SHOP LAKE CITY, YOU’RE ALREADY
HERE!” Andrea
Hamilton represented education, Bruce Carlstrom represented banking/finance,
and Terry Schumacher represented the local media. These non
-
retailers understand how each
segment of our local economy affects all of us. They created this year’s theme, printed a
nd
distributed window clings, hosted weekly radio talk shows, and created articles and ads for the
newspaper and the city’s cable channel. With assistance from Ron Ziegler representing the EDA,
the SOLE team worked to remind people of the benefits of doing

business locally. Please extend
your thanks to Andrea, Bruce, Terry and Ron for the time and energy they have given to help our
local retail economy and to the EDA , the Graphic and Shopper, and Fiesta Foods for their
financial and in
-
kind support for th
is effort.


The RAT meetings provide a forum for discussions of issues affecting us, such as downtown
parking, and an opportunity for education, such as our guest presenter on energy use reduction
for businesses.


We also decorated the downtown for autum
n, organizing low
-
cost group ads to publicize the
stores that are open on Sundays, business card size walking maps that we use to refer shoppers
to other shops, and the holiday coupon book.


All of this didn’t just happen. Cheryl H., Kathy B., Nancy D.,
Angie H., Paul L., Shar Y., Terri and
Jeff E., Kandace L
-
T, Dean S., the “SOLE mates” and Mary H., got up early to participate in
meetings and/or worked after their store hours and made events and ads happen.


2009 will bring new economic challenges for
our local retailers along with new leadership for the
Retail Action Team. My sincere thanks to everyone who helped during these past two years.



Respectfully Submitted, Jil Garry

Explore Mississippi Bluffs


Report by Robyn Dankers, 2008 Representative


I
n 2008, the Tourism Bureau provided funding for Lake City to participate in a regional
marketing cooperative group. Formerly known as Southern Comfort, the group became
“Explore Mississippi Bluffs” (EMB) in April 2008. A press release announcing the name

change and addition of Lake City received quite a bit of coverage. Other participating
communities are Wabasha, Winona, Red Wing, and Lanesboro.


Meetings are held monthly, in conjunction with the Southern Minnesota Tourism
Association conferences. Duri
ng non
-
conference months, the meeting host alternates
between partner communities.


The marketing focus is primarily within a 200
-
miles radius, where most tourist traffic for the
region is generated.


2008 Activities Summary



A Lake City insert was created
for pre
-
printed Southern Comfort guides



Professional photographs (summer and winter shots of Lake City) were prepared for
advertising purposes. These were also used to upgrade the

d, and are also promoted through
the e
-
mail blasts. A winter package is currently listed on both the Lake City and
EMB sites.

mail addresses for

web marketing projects.
