MENOMONIE – A Boyceville High School graduate took over the helm of Main Street Menomonie today.
Dustyn Dubuque filled the vacant executive director position that had been open since June.
Most recently Dubuque was employed at the Dunn County Historical Society and Washington County Historical Society where he event planned, did programming and fundraising. At the Dunn County Historical Society he developed and implements multiple events including Ghosts of Dunn County, Old Fashioned Fourth and the annual summer kids event Show me Fridays.
“I have lived in the county all my life and enjoy the unique experiences downtown Menomonie has to offer,” Dubuque said of Dunn County. “Menomonie has a vibrant mix of shops, restaurants, breweries, events and entertainment. My goal was to build on the previous successes of Main Street Menomonie while bringing something new and fun to the position. Promoting pride, growth and enjoyment for all of our downtown is my top priority. I look forward to working with local businesses to make that happen.”
Dubuque is a graduate of UW-Eau Claire where he received a master’s degree in public history and non-profit management.
It is always fantastic to see locals from Dunn County stay and grow with the community.
When not on the job, Dubuque enjoys listening to music, reviewing movies for the local newspaper or playing vintage baseball with the Menomonie Blue Caps.
