Groundbreaking for McGregor’s New Community Center


In honor of the anticipated construction, the City of McGregor held a Groundbreaking Ceremony on February 1, 2019 for The Exchange Event Center.

Speakers at this event included Jimmy Hering the Mayor of McGregor, Paul Allison a city Councilman, John Sneed the President for the McGregor Downtown Exchange Corporation, Frank Leos the President of the Economic Development Corporation and Cassie Thomas the Event Center Manager for The Exchange. Also, in attendance was Bobby Jones from CWA Construction, David Wright from RBDR Architects and Charles “Doc” Anderson, State Representative.

“This event center holds a unique position in the market. It is 14,000 sq. ft and can fit up to 700 people. It was designed as a universal space that will be able to host several types of events including but not limited to Banquets, Weddings, Trade Shows, Reunions, Quinceaneras, Prom, Project Graduation and more. We hope to be open for the McGregor Chamber Banquet in October of this year,” said Cassie Thomas.
