Greater Grand Lake Region Visitor’s Center Executive Director Donna Grube

Greater Grand Lake Region Visitor’s Center Executive Director Donna Grube talks at the New Bremen New Knoxville Rotary meeting on Tuesday at Speedway Lanes in New Bremen.

NEW BREMEN — A self-described “cheerleader for the area,” Greater Grand Lake Region Visitors Center Executive Director Donna Grube swung by the New Bremen New Knoxville Rotary meeting on Tuesday morning to talk about everything that’s going on in the two-county area.

Grube, who is in her 19th year as director for the visitor’s center, said she originally had a list of things she wanted to see when she first took over which included: breweries, wineries, specialty candy stores, real creamery ice cream places and farm heritage.

“That took a while,” Grube said, referring to farm heritage. “Farm is big business ... but with MVP Dairy, north of Celina, at least now we have a place to send folks to learn more about agriculture. When you talk about being in the top agriculture area in the state, it’s kind of nice to have somebody to let them see that.”

She said her list is “nearly complete”, adding maybe she would like to see a distillery in the area at some point.
