Despite heavy rains combined with sometimes strong winds, hundreds once again came out for the 2016 Clinton Chamber of Commerce Business Expo.
Executive Director of the Chamber, Marian Brisard, was pleased with this year's turnout despite the weather conditions and indicates she heard very few complaints.
53 business, community groups and entities were on hand to display what they offered doing various giveaways and drawings. One such entity hoping the public would aid first responders in finding their homes in emergency situations was the Wapella Fire Protection District in conjunction with the DeWitt County Sheriff's Department's booth. Wapella Fire Chief Nelson Thorpe explains their address signage is vital in finding homes both in rural areas and in DeWitt County communities.
Gene Witted was helping at the Farm Bureau Wednesday. He indicates some of the things they had on display promoted agriculture from a trivia game they had to literature for children. He says it was all about promoting agriculture and the Farm Bureau.
Hear more from Chief Thorpe later this week on Regional Radio News to learn more about the address signs they are trying to get installed across DeWitt County.
