About the IACC

The IACC was formed in February 2006 by a group of citizens whose purpose was to improve the appearance and the quality of life in the city of Iroquois. Since that time, IACC continues to plan and implement many fun, family-oriented activities throughout the year.

Past community activities include a summer potluck supper with family games, a fall festival, Christmas tour of homes, soup supper and tour of holiday lights, visit from Santa, Easter egg hunt, welcome baskets for new families, community beautification projects, spring cleanup, help with Sports Day activities and fundraisers for area families or individuals in need.

One significant recent project was the purchase of playground equipment for Woodall City Park. The group raised money through many fundraising activities to go toward the improvements at the park.

The IACC is always looking for people interested in community improvement, to join the group or volunteer for events. For information, contact Mary Wienbar at 605-461-2699.
