Dell Rapids Mayor Tom Earley and the City of Dell Rapids made a proclamation that Monday, February 22nd was Dan Ahlers Day of Appreciation. Mayor Earley made the proclamation during the Dell Rapids Chamber of Commerce’s annual banquet on Sunday, February 21st.
Ahlers made the announcement during the banquet that he was stepping down as president of the Dell Rapids Chamber of Commerce after over twelve years serving on the chamber.
“Tonight the city wants to recognize Dan for the work that he has done. His involvement in Quarry Days is a great example. I did not realize how much stuff has to happen and be done, preparations in such detail, and Dan was right in the middle. And if it wasn’t for the work Dan has done and the other people he’s got to support him, a lot of these things wouldn’t have happened,” said Mayor Earley.
Mayor Earley presented Ahlers with the framed proclamation in appreciation for his service to the Dell Rapids Chamber of Commerce.
