Big Lake Chamber Gears Up for Business Expo | Business
Mark your calendar now--organizers say the Big Lake Business Expo features a TV star, lots of great food, entertainment and plenty of exhibitors to look at.
The Big Lake Chamber of Commerce is organizing the Expo for March 6th from 11:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. at Big Lake High School. Chamber President Tricia Skodje says last year the event drew about 2,000 people. But she thinks there might be more this year, thanks to an appearance by Discovery Channel's "Storm Chaser," Reed Timmer.
Timmer will appear at a booth, selling and signing his book, "Into the Storm." Then, after the expo he will make a presentation about storm chasing. Tickets are $15 at the show. Timmer is donating his time and giving all the proceeds to the Wadena Relief Fund. Skodje says that's because "Storm Chaser's" film crews were first on the scene when a tornado hit Wadena last June.
