Iowa chambers try to break world record for ribbon cutting
Monday, July 22, 2013 2:01 PM
Gov. Terry Branstad and representatives from 21 area chambers of commerce are to participate in an Aug. 15 ribbon cutting hosted by Golden Openings Inc., which is opening a new warehouse at 1200 Brookside Circle in Grimes. If successful, it will be a new world record for the most chambers of commerce cutting one ribbon at the same time. Golden Openings makes ceremonial scissors and custom ribbons, and in 2011 partnered with a company at a ribbon cutting in Florida to set the record for the longest ribbon cutting, chopping a 4.5-mile-long ribbon. The event will take place from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m., with the cutting at 5:30.
