The clouds were sparse and the vendors plentiful at the 2016 Whistle Stop Festival!
The day set records for heat index on a Saturday in September, but those who attended the WSF in downtown Irondale were not disappointed. The food was delicious, the music was toe-tapping, and the vendors provided information, crafts, and merchandise for just about every interest! Check out our photos here.
We'll see y'all next year!
Last week the Greater Irondale Chamber was delighted to host international speaker, Joe Thomas, author of the book, Everybody Knows Joe: 11 Keys to Impactful Networking. Mr. Thomas was both informative and entertaining! We're confident anyone you speak to who attended the luncheon will tell you they were glad they did. (To see photos, click here.)
Thank you, once again, to Sain Associates for sponsoring this month's luncheon.

September is National Library Card Month! A great excuse to visit your Irondale Public Library.
Maybe you've been avoiding the library lately because of a few outstanding late fines. Well, take advantage of the Food for Fines program this month! For each canned good or boxed food item (must not be out of date) you bring in to the library during the month of September, $1 in late fines will be waived (late fines only)!
For all the other exciting events the Library has planned, check out their September calendar, too.
