Its a rare thing for any business to celebrate 75 years, said Frank Brownell, Brownells Chairman of the Board. And the whole night turned out just wonderfully. The weather was perfect, and the music was beyond great. I just want to thank everyone who helped make this happen all the volunteers, the Poweshiek County Sheriffs Office, Vannoy Chevrolet, Montezuma State Bank, Grinnell Regional Medical Center and everyone who came out. What a fantastic party!
