Faribault Area Chamber of Commerce representatives will joins us on today's KDHL AM Minnesota program to talk about a number of upcoming events.

Shop Small Saturday is next weekend and the Faribault Chamber would like to remind all of us when you shop local you support small businesses that contribute to your community.

Local businesses are owned by people who live in the community, worship in the community and send their children to schools in the community.

On the Faribault Chamber website they say, "Each time you choose to spend your dollars at a local business, you are supporting the continued strength and vitality of our community."

That's not all.
