Join members and small businesses of the Danish Villages Improvement Organization's mission to inspire growth throughout Elk Horn and Kimballton, Iowa. Use #inspiregrowthdv to spark growth through social connection, economic development and community promotion. Highlight local, your local! This organization is a merge of DVEDA and Better Elk Horn Club to strengthen the ties between Elk Horn and Kimballton because you can't have one without the other. We're a package deal, share a school system and have strong historical ties that make us home to many. The Danish Villages may be small but we do big things and together we can keep adapting to whatever the times present us. Don't have a business but have ideas to help our communities flourish and/or to spruce up our streets? Reach out to any of the following board members for more information or email DVIO@metc.net: President Peggy Mortensen, Bob Mortensen, Chelsee Jacobsen, Beth Larsen, Klare Chapman, Terri Johnson, Maria Hughes, Emily Paulsen, and Jodee Dixon Remember that just by joining doesn't mean you have to tackle it all at once. Start small and develop your niche with us! Little projects and endeavors can go a long way! We are communities of the working class so we understand your work comes first and volunteering should be nothing but fun! Ohh and before we forget, not Danish? No problem! Our communities were built by Danish Immigrants. Their growth is apart of our story but your growth is too.
