Welcome Wagon

Emmetsburg provides a Welcome Wagon program to help welcome all newcomers to Emmetsburg. We feel it is important that new citizens to Emmetsburg are made to feel at home. Each newcomer is given a personal visit by our Welcome Wagon representative, Lou Ann Huberty, to meet and greet the family and present them with gifts.

During her visit, the newcomer’s questions and concerns are addressed. In an effort to involve newcomers in our community, a list of churches, organizations, clubs, etc. is provided. In addition, a gift bag is given that provides coupons, gifts and household items. This program is sponsored by participating businesses.

Names of the newcomers are obtained from the Emmetsburg Utilities. Utilities are not always in the name of the newcomer, so names are also obtained through other contacts.  If you know of anyone who has moved to town and has not been contacted, please contact Lou Ann Huberty at 852-2334
