The Owatonna Area Chamber of Commerce and Tourism (OACCT) invites you out to eat. And people seem ready to go. But at what kind of restaurant? The chamber is taking a survey through the end of May on the type of restaurant residents would like to see come to town. Over 800 people have already taken the survey.

In their weekly Tuesday Talk e-newsletter, OACCT states, "As part of downtown redevelopment, we foresee one of more restaurants securing space in Owatonna soon. We need your input to help determine which kind of establishment and cuisine is desired by the community."

In other news from Tuesday Talk, the Chamber Ambassadors visited Brick-Meger Funeral Home in recognition of their 125th anniversary, "Glen, Cheryl, Mike and Brett Meger are the owners. The Megers look forward to carrying on the tradition of funeral service and caring for families for another 125 years."

The Ambassadors also stopped at Corporate Recognition to help celebrate their 25th anniversary. "Corporate Recognition provides ideas and imprinted products to promote and advertise all types of businesses and events.

The 25th annual presentation of the Ted G. Ringhofer Memorial Scholarship went to Owatonna High School senior Arianna Shornock. The daughter of Shane and Amy Shornock, Ari is planning to attend the University of Northern Iowa and major in accounting.

The $1,000 scholarship is given by North Risk Partners and the OACCT Ambassadors. The chambers website says, "

Ted was a graduate of Owatonna High School. While in school Ted was in wrestling, the President of the Student Council, worked on homecoming floats, and involved in many other activities. He was President of the Owatonna Chamber of Commerce for over 29 years and on the Owatonna City Council for 24 years. Ted’s respect for our community can be seen in his many years of dedication and volunteer work."
