Last week the Ottumwa Chamber of Commerce hosted their 70th Annual Golf Classic. The American Gothic House Center was fortunate enough to share a booth at hole 13 with the Ottumwa Area Convention and Visitors Bureau. Representatives from AGHC and the Ottumwa CVB braved the heat to meet with golfers as they stopped by the booth before teeing off. Since the golf outing was 70s-themed, the normal American Gothic fare came with some funky twists.
As golfers stopped by they were welcome to have their picture taken in the American Gothic face cut-out, which was decked out in 70s flare. Check out these pictures of some of the golfers.
Representatives at the booth wore overalls with tie-dye shirts, and the usual apron was adorned with some flashy chains and hair bands. Those who stopped by could learn more about the American Gothic House Center and events in the Ottumwa Area. The Ottumwa CVB created a list of 70 things to see and do in Wapello County. If you would like to have a list stop by the American Gothic House Center and pick one up!
