Cobblestone Hotel Opening

We also enjoyed food and drink in the totally "no smoking" facility. People from the Cobblestone Headquarters in Wisconsin were there and introduced. I was sitting next to one of them who was very familiar with Tomah. He said his Dad was a contractor and build several buildings there. I expect he and Jerry were probably acquainted. The Governor talked about this Hotel being an example of the use of Tax Increment Financing (TIF) to make things happen. The local Banks, individual investors and most of all, Shane were recognized as important in the process. The Mayor, City Administrator and others were also acknowledged. The new Hotel comes at a time when our Super 8 is undergoing changes in ownership. We certainly needed the new one.
