As our organization's core purpose is facilitating job and busi- ness growth for existing and new businesses in the county, WCEDC was certainly a major partner in the effort of the 'Warren County Citizens for Good Jobs' to bring 600 jobs, 250 construction jobs and $4.5 million in annual revenue for our sclxools, charities and infrastruc- ture and new dollars into our county. Though there is disappointment, we wish to thank the many individu- als who contributed in some way to supporting this project. We are proud of the proponents' hopeful, opti- mistic and positive campaign which was put before Warren County voters. Further, we wish to invite those who opposed this project to put forward alternative ideas for economic development projects in Warren County and to harness those same energies from the campaign to contribute to our county's advancement. Warren County has many exciting projects for 2013, WCEDC has a strong portfolio of economic develop- ment projects looking to invest in Warren County and WCEDC recently received the "Overall Program" award from Governor Terry Branstad for our Business Reten- tion & Expansion program. The future is bright!"

For those of you who have never seen it, you are in for a treat. Soap Box Derby racing has been around since the 1930s. Youth ages 8-17 from all over Iowa come to Norwalk to compete in downhill, gravity-powered rac- ers that they build themselves with a parent/adult to compete for a chance to represent Norwalk at the 76th annual All-American Soap Box Derby in Akron, OH. The All-American Soap Box Derby is the premier youth and family-oriented racing program in the United States: Established in 1933, it is an American tradition. Racing is not just for boys; many girls compete also. The Norwalk race is one of 450 races held throughout the country each season. The race is held on Main Street going downhill from the Christian Church to Elm Street starting at 10 a.m. For some, it is the first time that they have competed in a race. We race both stock and super- stock divisions. Come help us cheer on the drivers. Bleachers are set up on Main Street for your viewing pleasure. For any boy and girl interested in racing we do have a few extra cars that can be used, but you need to contact us by May 15. We also have a raffle to help defray costs of the race. Many great prizes are donated by local business own- ers. Raffle tickets can be purchased in advance by call- ing Pat Wahl at 981-4928. Drawing will be held at the race. For more information on the race you can contact Pat Nigon, Race Director at 515-991-8206. Hope to see many of you there!
