K/PACEDC Golf Outing Creates Valuable Connections for Area Interns

The Kossuth/Palo Alto County Economic Development Corporation once again sponsored the Intern Golf Outing this year at the River Road Golf Club in Algona. This year’s event had a great turnout of 35 people that consisted of interns and area business leaders. While playing in four-somes, the interns enjoyed beautiful weather and the opportunity to connect with area business leaders on a more casual level outside of the office. This is just one of the events that is sponsored by Kossuth/Palo Alto County Economic Development Corporation for the summer Intern Program. Maureen Elbert commented, “These initiatives have been successful as networking opportunities for our area interns. This is one of the great ways K/PACEDC provides the interns with an avenue to learn more about the companies in our area as well as making those very important connections for the future.” 

Many businesses donated funds and gifts toward the meal, green fees, and numerous prize giveaways. A gracious “thank-you” is extended to the following businesses:

Algona Aquatic Center, Algona Dairy Queen, Algona Family YMCA, Algona Publishing, Allure Salon, Buscher Bros. RV Center, Cinco De Mayo, Citizens Community Credit Union, Ernie Williams LTD, Erpelding Voigt & Co., Fareway, Farm & Home Services, Good Samaritan Society of Algona, Hy-Vee, Innovations Salon and Spa, Kemna Auto Center, KOFAB, Kossuth Regional Health Center, MaxYield Cooperative, Murphy-Brown LLC, North Iowa Lumber, Northwest Communications, Oakcrest Funeral Services, Perky Parrot, Pitchers, Premier Pizza, Primetime Restaurant, Reding’s Gravel, River Road Golf Course, Roethler Electric, Sportsman’s Corner, State 5 Theaters, StateLine Cooperative, Styles Salon, Subway, The Chocolate Season, The Market, and The Water Connection.
