Limestone Bluffs RC&D is celebrating 25 years of service to eastern Iowa.
Limestone Bluffs is a non-profit organization that works to bring a thriving rural lifestyle to six counties, including Delaware, Dubuque and Jones. Executive Director and Manchester resident Lori Scovel says it’s something they’re proud to do.
Limestone Bluffs promotes arts, culture, history and tourism through the Regional Cultural Council; coordinates projects through the Maquoketa River Watershed Management Authority; and promotes local producers and consumers with the River Bend Local Food Initiative. Scovel says they also help small businesses.
In honor of their 25th anniversary, Limestone Bluffs recently held an Anniversary Banquet in which they presented several honors and awards. Dan and Julie Woods of Big Jim’s BLTs in Delaware County and Sam Mulgrew of Trappist Caskets in Dubuque County were presented with the Excellence in Innovation Award, which honors area entrepreneurs and small businesses that were successful in growing and sustaining their business with help from Limestone Bluffs. Past RC&D Treasurer Eric Wahl of Jones County was also recognized for his outstanding service to the organization.
