Various organizations within the community strive to build character and bring economic growth to the city. Most organizations are volunteer and are always looking for new members and ideas to bring more to our city. If you're looking for a way to get involved with the community, organizations are a great place to start.

Hope Days

The Hope Days Committee throws a town celebration every year in the second week of July, where we attract a multitude of people to our events. Hope Days was established around 1998 as a way for the community to get together and enjoy everything our summers have to offer. Our goal is to independently raise the funds needed to host these events, and to provide fundraising opportunities to local organizations during our celebration. Hope Days is known for event staples like the golf scramble, parade, old time tractor drive, demolition derby and the street dance. We aim to bring family oriented events and live music and entertainment to our small town.
