Several guests attended the groundbreaking ceremony, including Dan Culhane, President and CEO of the Ames Chamber of Commerce; John Hollinrake, Deputy State Director for U.S. Senator Joni Ernst; Emily Schwickerath, District Director for U.S. Congressman Randy Feestra; Bill Johnson, Developer with Choice Commercial; Mark Lewis, President of Cedar Falls Building Systems Inc.; along with Jan Williams, Nikki Fischer, Dylan Kline, Steven Lawrence, Ottie Maxey, and Emory Widlowski, all representing the Ames Chamber of Commerce.
