Spahn & Rose Foundation awards grant for chamber addition

The Prairie du Chien Area Chamber of Commerce has been pondering the idea of adding to its facility for the purposes of a community/conference center, observation deck and a wrap-around walkway. With a recent $5,000 grant from the Spahn & Rose Foundation, the chamber has now reached over 70 percent of its project costs. Spahn & Rose has been in business since 1904 and is headquartered in Dubuque, Iowa. The Prairie du Chien lumber yard has been in town since 1991 and at its current location since 2005. Every year, the Spahn & Rose Foundation donates to nonprofit organizations in the communities that are home to its 24 lumber yards. According to Brent Posten, Prairie du Chien’s general manager, this is the first time any entity from Prairie du Chien has ever applied for the grant. Chamber CEO Bob Moses said he expects the project to utilize Spahn & Rose materials during the construction process. Moses said the goal is for groundbreaking to happen in April.
