On April 21st, 2023, at the Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center in Des Moines, Main Street Manning participated in the Main Street Iowa Development Awards. At the event, Manning was recognized for their revitalization efforts as a Main Street Iowa community. Manning became a Main Street Iowa community in 2009. At the event, guests could mingle and network with other Main Street Iowa communities. Each community was recognized for their focus on bringing out the best in their towns.

Among the guests, employees of Puck Enterprises were in attendance. Puck recieved the Leadership Award for their involvement in streetscape projects, as well as the lighted structures for Main Street Manning banners. This award “recognizes inspirational leadership and volunteers who have made significant contributions to the local Main Street programs’ downtown revitalization mission.”

Puck’s Application Manager Jake Doyel was one of the employees in attendance to accept the award. “I feel like it was much deserved because one of our main focuses is community, so we always like to give back and help build the community in Manning,” Doyel said. “I think that it was very well deserved.”

Additionally, Puck was recognized for the consistent savings provided for Main Street Manning.

Economic Developments Improving Iowa

According to Governor Kim Reynolds, the Main Street Iowa economic developments have led to hundreds of jobs created. These developments also created nearly 1,300 new downtown businesses across the state of Iowa in just the last two years. Private investments into the local communities totaling more than $365 million made these achievements possible.

Manning is no stranger to grassroots economic development. At the end of 2022, Main Street Manning had $5 million from private investments for the commercial district.

Puck Enterprises is grateful to be acknowledged by Main Street Iowa for our participation in Main Street Manning. We hope to continue to invest in the betterment of our community in the future!
