The Owatonna Area Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Ambassadors recently visited the newly named Sharon Stark Auditorium at the Little Theatre of Owatonna. Stark, who passed away in May 2018, helped found LTO in 1966. Nearly 200 productions have been hosted there since then. Currently, "Sweeny Todd" continues through February 24.

The Ambassadors also stopped by the new location of Edward Jones-John Havelka and Edward Jones-Jeffrey Hall at 143 W Bridge Street

Chamber president Brad Meier reports, "The Chamber Ambassadors raised money to cover five years of the Ted G. Ringhofer scholarship at the annual Golden Opportunity Dinner."
