Winnebago Area Community Club - formerly Chamber of Commerce
Winnebago Area Community Club mission statement:
Winnebago community members and businesses working together to promote local activities, business events, and commerce for the mutual benefit of Winnebago and the surrounding areas.
Just a few months ago, the Winnebago Area Community Club was formed. The goal of the Community Club is to bring residents, community members, and businesses together on the same page in their efforts to promote our wonderful community. Great things already happen here in Winnebago including Bago Fun Fest, Frosty Fest, Easter Egg Hunt, Community Thanksgiving Dinner, and more. We also have great city parks that include a skate park, swimming pool and ice skating, an amazing museum and a fabulous library. As the Winnebago Area Community Club moves forward, we would like to continue to promote these wonderful aspects of our community as well as offer even more events, activities, and community service projects that will only add value to our community and bring even more people together in a positive way.
If you have great ideas or would like to offer your help in promoting and assisting with any of the current city-wide events, please join us! Our meetings are held quarterly and membership dues are listed below. The Winnebago Area Community Club is in the process of developing a 501(c)(3), non-profit, charitable organization and membership dues are used to help fund all these wonderful events.
