Alliance to host ‘Community Coffee’ socials

IRON RIVER—The Iron County Economic Chamber Alliance (“The Alliance”) will host two public coffee socials in which Iron County residents can come and talk community, workforce, tourism and economic development with trustees and staff.
    The first social will be on Monday, March 26, from 7:30-9:30 a.m. at the West Iron District Library in Iron River. The second will be on Tuesday, March 27, from 7:30-9:30 a.m. at C&G Old School Café in Alpha.
    “These Community Coffee events are intended to provide an opportunity for local stakeholders to hear what’s going on in Iron County’s economic development,” said Paul Schuytema, Alliance executive director. “Folks will also have the chance to share their ideas and learn about how to get involved – not to mention enjoy some tasty local treats on us.”
    The event is free to attend, and anyone is welcome. For more information, visit or call 265-3822.
    The Alliance is a Michigan 501(c)(6) nonprofit, tax-exempt organization and is governed by a local board of trustees. Funding for the Alliance comes from the generous support of many of Iron County’s governmental units, private businesses, as well as grant funding.
