On Saturday, residents heard the sound of helicopters flying above the city. They may have seen other activity too which was all in preparation for a visit from Vice President Mike Pence on Tuesday. Pence will be the first sitting Vice President since H. W. Bush to visit Forest City. Bush addressed the graduating class of Waldorf University in 1987.
He is scheduled to visit Winnebago Industries sometime after 1 pm in the afternoon after having lunch with Governor Kim Reynolds.
Pence will then speak to the workers at Winnebago Industries before flying back to Washington, D. C. Tuesday evening. Further details of this visit by Vice President Mike Pence are to be released soon. Stay with KIOW and kiow.com for upcoming bulletins.
