The Reader’s Have Chosen

The Reader’s Have Chosen



Every year, the Globe Gazette compiles a list of local businesses who have received the ultimate accolade.  To be chosen by the general public as “the best” of something is such an honor, mostly because it comes from you – the customer, the consumer, the ones who keep our local businesses afloat and contribute to the incredible economy in North Iowa.

So if we had to choose – we would choose YOU!  Just for being awesome.

I know each and every one of these businesses appreciates your support.  And if there’s a establishment listed you have not yet visited… well, now is your chance to check them out!

Congrats to the following Clear Lake Chamber Members on being the Reader’s Choice for “best of” in 2019!

**Each business is linked to their Facebook Page**

Clear Lake Chamber: Best Summer Event, Fall Event, & Winter Event:  A bit surreal to have THREE of our events take the top spot!  Our summer event – July 4th Celebration (Chair is Alice Hanley).  Our Fall Event – Harvest Festival… aka Best Girls Day out of all Time (Chair is Jennifer Larsen).  And our Winter Event – Christmas by the Lake (Chair is Gene Madsen).  What an HONOR to be chosen!  Keep your eyes peeled for lot of fun and excitement this year as we celebrate some significant milestones in these events.
