New Group Aims to Attract Young Professionals

–A new social club is kicking off this month, with the goal of providing networking opportunities for newcomers or individuals who have recently returned to the area. Algona Communications Manager Joanne Roepke Bode tells KLGA News how the idea of this group got started.
