It may have been wet and dreary, but the weather this past Saturday morning didn’t dampen the spirits of the men and women who gathered at the Tulip Toren to join the fight against breast cancer. Breast cancer survivors, their friends, families, and medical professionals all participated in the annual Pella in Pink 2K Saturday morning. Pella Regional Health Center held the walk and run in conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness Month activities. Resident Becky Rozenboom was diagnosed earlier this year, and was overwhelmed by the support of those closest to her and all that turned out for the event.
More jobs are coming to South Central Iowa as Lely North America intends to continue growth at their facility in Pella. Vice President Chad Huyser says as the dairy industry becomes more automated, demand increases to provide up-to-date products to operations throughout North America, which also provides the opportunity to increase market share. Huyser says they are continuing to expand their staff and are in discussions to expand their facilities — both their location on Vermeer’s Campus and their recently-opened training facility, in the coming years.
