It's the 11th annual Tama-Toledo Business Farm and Home Show coming next Saturday, March 7, at the Veterans Convention Center at the Meskwaki BingoCasinoHotel, located four miles west on U.S. 30.

"We're hoping with the longer hours (10 a.m.- 8 p.m.) more people are able to attend," said Chamber of Commerce President Brittany Hunt. She said planners for the popular event added hours so even more persons can add it to their weekend schedule. It is sponsored each year by the Chamber organization.
