Downtown Owatonna Hotel Groundbreaking Set
The Owatonna Area Chamber of Commerce and Tourism (OACCT) announces Thursday June 3 at 5 pm as the groundbreaking ceremony on the "transformational projects downtown," as indicated in the Tuesday Talk e-newsletter. "It's celebrating $30 million invested in the new Marriott Courtyard Hotel, restaurant, Pearl Apartments, Old Town Bagels and Streetscape project." The public is invited to attend.
That groundbreaking event comes on the heels of a similar happening at the site of the new Owatonna High School in early May. Chamber members helped moved the first shovels of dirt on the $104 million campus.
The Chamber Ambassadors presented OHS senior Jenna Gleason with the 24th annual Ted G. Ringhofer Memorial Scholarship, honoring the longtime chamber president and Owatonna City Councilman.
Steele County Works will hold its Signing Day on Wednesday, May 26 at Torey's Restaurant to recognize area high school students who are jumping into the workforce after high school.
