Lawrence T. Bryant, field services coordinator, and Wendy Leonard, both with the Iowa Department of Transportation, are the featured speakers for the Kalona Area Chamber of Commerce meeting Monday, August 30, at noon in the downtown Chamber Building.

The two will speak about the proposed project that will see Iowa Highway 1 become a Super-2 Highway. Both will also explain what is involved in the project, that would not see any construction for at least six years.

The area involved is from Highway 92 near Washington to Highway 218, near Iowa City. There was an earlier information session held at the Kalona community Center.

DOT officials have confirmed that a by-pass at Kalona is no longer a consideration.

Lunch will be catered by Marilyn Bender of the Kalona Bakery.

Other agenda items are plans for the annual Chamber banquet set for Monday, September 27, at 6:30 p.m. in the Kalona Mennonite Church. Cost is $13 per person and the meal will be catered by The Parlor Cafe.

Sponsors for the banquet will be listed in the program for a $25 donation. The sponsorship funds will be used to purchase a new computer for the Chamber office that will be Y2K compatible.

Election of officers will take place at the August meeting, and officers will be installed during the banquet.

Officers are Dave Hochstetler, president; president-elect, open for nomination from the floor; Cyndie Koehler, vice-president; Jan Peterseim, secretary; Brenda Herington, treasurer. Directors are Jane Schlabaugh and Dave Clearman, three-year terms; Ken Petrone, one-year. Past president is Ron Slechta.

Tom Jepson will represent the Kalona Development, Inc.

Leaving the board are Bill Kinneer and Ray Marner. Wanda Beachy was president-elect, but resigned since she accepted a position in Cedar Rapids. Continuing member is Gary Bontrager.
