posted in Chamber of Commerce on February 12, 2019

Waverly, IA – In January, the Waverly Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors visited four local businesses and presented them with Progress Awards.

The Ambassadors recently visited Walsworth Family Dentistry to welcome Dr. Jessica Corcoran to Waverly. Walsworth Family Dentistry is a full service locally owned general dental office that prides itself on excellent care and customer service.  Dr. Corcoran joined Dr. Joel Walsworth’s office in January 2018 after practicing dentistry for 12 years in Algona, Iowa. She received her B.S. from Iowa State University and her D.D.S. from the University of Iowa College of Dentistry. She enjoys seeing patients of all ages and has been a certified Invisalign provider for several years. Dr. Corcoran has a particular interest in cosmetic dentistry. Helping patients regain confidence in their smiles is one of her favorite things about practicing dentistry. One of her personal goals in her career is to provide compassionate care and reduce her patients’ stress during their appointments. Dr. Corcoran and her husband are enjoying the Waverly community and keep busy with their three children.

The Ambassadors also presented a progress award to Self-Help International at their new location at 207 20th St. NW Suite A in Waverly.  Self-Help staff showed the Ambassadors around the offices and remarked on the amount of volunteer work that went in to making the move possible.  “We, the U.S. staff, are grateful for all the time we spent at our old office on the Wartburg campus, but we are excited to start this chapter of Self-Help history with our new location,” said Megan Sehr, Director of Development at Self-Help.

Visitors are welcome to stop by to see the space Monday-Friday, 8:30 AM-4:30 PM.  The office is wheelchair accessible and has plenty of parking.  Self-Help International works in rural villages in Ghana and Nicaragua to help people help themselves, and their U.S. office in Waverly is celebrating 60 years in 2019.

Century 21 LSB Real Estate has recently joined forces with Century 21 Signature Real Estate out of Des Moines, resulting in recognition from the Chamber’s Ambassador Committee.  The addition of the Waverly and Cedar Falls offices makes a total of nine locations throughout the state of Iowa, with knowledgeable agents serving the entire state.  Owners Joe Schafbuch and Dylan de Bruin work closely with broker, Karmen Schwake and the team of relentless agents serving northeast Iowa.  Along with a name change, there are many other positive changes taking place behind the scenes.  The tools and foundation that Century 21 Signature brings to the area are unrivaled and will only increase the level of professionalism, innovation and customer service that has always been expected from the agents here at Century 21. 

Kilo Trained of Waverly received a Progress Award after moving into their new, larger space last spring.  Kilo Trained is a physical fitness / strength and conditioning program. It was adopted through The Gym, CrossFit Kilo out of Cedar Falls. The programs at CrossFit Kilo are designed to help our members reach their highest potential in terms of endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy. The class-based format is intended to ignite friendly competition between members, as well as create personal goals to improve upon. Our daily workouts are always changing, preventing the feeling of monotony that often accompanies “working out.”

The Waverly Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors Program serves as a public relations arm of the Waverly Chamber by welcoming new businesses, recognizing business expansion efforts, recruiting new members to the Waverly Chamber and by serving as a representative of the Chamber throughout the community.
