Faribault Area Chamber of Commerce and Tourism President/CEO Nort Johnson stops by KDHL for a visit today.  Our AM Minnesota program begins 9:30 a.m.  We have a number of community issues to discuss that impact businesses around Faribault.

I'm sure we will talk about the Taste of Faribault scheduled for September 19th, 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the American Legion Post 43.  Advance tickets are $20, at the door $25.  You can get a group together and buy 10 tickets for $150 and purchase those on the Faribault Area Chamber of Commerce and Tourism website.

We will ask Nort about how the bench project is progressing.  When we visited with Main Street Coordinator Kelly Nygaard a couple weeks ago there were just a few benches left to sponsor.

These benches will be placed in the downtown area and help tell the history of Faribault.  They are supposed to combine function and art.

If you can't listen at 9:30, audio from the program will be on this page before the end of the day.
