COKATO, DASSEL, MN Cokato and Dassel Chambers of Commerce are again teaming up for the ninth annual Dassel-Cokato Business Expo set for Saturday, Feb. 19 from 9 a.m. to noon.
More than 30 booths are expected again this year representing businesses from the area.
“The annual business expo is an excellent way for local businesses and community members to get to know one another,” said Dori Kimball, expo committee chair.
It’s also another way for businesses to get their name and the services they provide out there in an effort to boost the economy, Kimball added.
An added incentive for those who venture out to the Dassel-Cokato High School Saturday morning, is the free pancake breakfast served by the Cokato Lions Club from 9 a.m. to noon.
Cokato Lion Jim Frickstad said the club was pleased with the turnout, with an estimated 275 free pancake breakfasts served in 2010.
There will also be a chance to win a number of door prizes including gift certificates for various local businesses.
For those businesses not already signed up, there is still time to register for a booth, at $75 for members, $90 for non-members. Call Kimball at (320) 286-2118.
