We’ve Got the Cure for Winter Blues

It’s the end of January, which means we are officially living in the dead of winter. We’ve made it this far, but we’ve still got a ways to go. It’s fair to say that the snow, sludge, frigid temperatures, and ice are enough to make most of us sad. However, we think we have the solution to the sadness that many of us suffer from during the winter. It is one word: community.

It’s one of our core values and something we hold of great importance. We strive to be a place where our community feels welcome. We strive to be a place where a community can exist, grow, and flourish. A place where families can get together after spending months apart. A place where graduations, birthdays, and anniversaries can be celebrated. A place where people can have fun, be entertained, and meet new people.

Winters in Northwest Iowa have a way of making us feel trapped. Trapped in our own homes, trapped in our sadness and trapped in our mundane routines. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be that way! We can gather together for a variety of purposes and enjoy the company of others. We think community is the best way to beat the winter blues!

While we try our best to create fun events to bring people together and out of their winter rut, our abilities only extend so far. We love finding musicians to play in concerts, hosting poetry slams, and being a space where people can play games. We also understand that there are so many incredible individuals with exceptional talents and passions to share with the rest of us.

We want to invite members of our community to share their passions with us! It could be pretty much anything!

Maybe you love making jewelry. There’s plenty of people in our community who would love to learn from you.

Perhaps you paint for fun. Host a paint and sip event; people would LOVE it!

Maybe you have a huge puzzle collection. Host an event for puzzle lovers!

Maybe you’re super passionate and knowledgeable about a particular topic. Host a community conversation for people that are interested in learning more!

There are endless possibilities!

Everyone has a hobby, a unique interest, something they love to do and learn about. We would be honored if you would share your talents and passions with our community and us.

If you have something you love, we’d love to hear about it. Comment on Instagram or Facebook to let us know or send us a DM. You don’t have to be an expert, just willing to share. We’d love to hear your ideas!
