June Communications

The Menomonie Area Chamber & Visitor Center will be hosting Independence Day Fireworks on Saturday July 3, 2021 at sundown. A map will be released in June which features a variety of viewing locations for community members to enjoy the show.


Sponsorships are available for this year's FREE community Fireworks display! Your sponsorship of $250 includes a logo space on over 500 flyers/posters fireworks promotional maps that will be distributed throughout the community as well as on signage in Wakanda Park the day of the event.  Sponsorships directly assist with the cost of fireworks.



Take a 'shot' at one of these great prizes!  This NEW Summer Raffle has limited tickets so purchase those tickets at the Menomonie Chamber & Visitor Center, an Ambassador or Board member.  The drawing will take place live at the 25th Annual Golf Outing on August 11 and aired on Facebook Live as there is no need to be present to win.

JFC Increases Youth Apprenticeship Funding

At its meeting last Wednesday, the legislature's Joint Finance Committee increased annual funding to the state's Youth Apprenticeship program by $1 million per year, moving its annual appropriation from $5 million to $6 million. The committee also approved increasing the maximum per student grant from $900 to $1,100. This now becomes part of the budget JFC will eventually present to the Governor. The YA program connects high school juniors and seniors with an employer of their choosing. After obtaining a job during the school year, the students are paired with a mentor at their worksite--allowing young individuals to earn money while gaining experience within their chosen industry. In Eau Claire County, the Eau Claire Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation serves as the administrative consortium for the program, serving the Altoona, Eau Claire, and Fall Creek school districts.  “Today’s vote continues our commitment to helping our local businesses connect with talent as they recover from the effects of the pandemic,” said Rep. Warren Petryk (R-Eleva), who chairs the Assembly Workforce Development Committee. “This program continues to be popular with students, parents, and businesses as students get on-the-job training to help prepare them for the next step in their lives, whether it be future education or starting their career.”  Also last week, Petryk's committee unanimously approved AB 220, authored by Rep. Loren Oldenburg, which requires schools to notify parents and students about the availability of the Youth Apprenticeship program in their school district.
