In anticipation of RAGBRAI cleanup continues; much entertainment planned

Four students from the University of Iowa have agreed to help with events when RAGBRAI passes through Postville July 28. They are pictured here with some of the committee members: Doyle Allen, Paula Enyart, Mayor Leigh Rekow, Terrie Allen and City Clerk Darcy Radloff. The students are Alex Behnke, Audrey Neislawski,  Katherine Crosby and  Laura Schwager.

As the community of Postville prepares for RAGBRAI  riders to pass through town July 28, the committee is making every effort to beautify the community.

Community cleanup will continue between now and the day of the event with the next cleanup day being July 5 at 5 p.m. Those able to help should contact Paula Enyart or City Hall at (563) 864-7454 or merely show up at Turner Hall.

Any local food vendors (profit or not for profit) need to sign up at City Hall. Interested parties may call City Hall at (563) 864-7454 to sign up or for more information.

Volunteers are needed when the RAGBRAI bikers come through Postville on July 28. Set up will begin at 5:30 a.m. Take down and clean-up will commence at 5 p.m. as the bikers head to Waukon.

Many fun activities are planned for the day of the event including, but not limited to, a spinning couch, giant jenga and corn hole games.

Some of the entertainment includes the band Challenger in the beer garden, Los Heroes De Ooxaca band in Roberts’ Park and DJ David Gallagher on East Greene Street.

T-Shirts promoting the event may be purchased at Second Best Resale and are available in tangerine, blue and lime green. The shirts promote Postville as “Hometown to the World.”
