Chairman of the Board’s Welcome

Geneva is a place where residents and guests to our community prosper from the genuine warmth of those who work and live here. It is a place known for its vibrant activities.

We are a community that has the commitment of the Chamber and city volunteers who create a core spirit and make Geneva a spectacular gathering place in which we can come together and celebrate our community spirit and our hometown life.

We are proud of our city staff, police department, fire department, local officials, downtown merchants, dining venues, volunteers and residents. This human tapestry makes Geneva a wonderful place to live and visit. It creates a blending of vibrant experiences into a destination city where all participants can enjoy friendship, laughter and family life.

Robert F. Kennedy explained the benefits of a strong community as: “It is not more bigness that should be our goal. We must attempt, rather, to bring people back to … the warmth of community, to the worth of individual effort and responsibility … and of individuals working together as a community, to better their lives and their children’s future.”

That is exactly what Geneva has given to each and every one of us who either call Geneva our home or who drop in for a visit. It is those opportunities to share, celebrate life and participate in the essence of American life that make up the fabric of the best qualities of our country. Welcome to our little niche of the world that is known as a “Picture Postcard” called Geneva.
