The Ireton Booster Club is comprised of businesses and individuals interested in promoting Ireton.  Membership is open to the public and may be purchased through Becky Gradert at the Ireton Vet Clinic (712-278-2577).  The cost of an individual or family membership is just $25 a year.


The Booster Club has its roots in the Ireton Commercial Club founded in 1911.  Through the years, the Club has been the primary organizer of many of the town's celebrations and events including Ireton's Diamond Jubilee, Ireton's observation of the U.S. Bicentennial, and the Ireton Centennial and 125th celebrations.


The Booster Club sponsors a variety of events each year including "Ireton's Community Christmas Party", the annual Bud Kemper Pee Wee Tournament, and an employer-employee banquet.


The Booster Club initiated a "Citizen of the Year" Award beginning with 2011.  Recipients were Ardis Eilts, Delbert (Deb) Schipper, Jr., George Wakeman and Doug Houlton. The 2016 recipient was Bud Vreeman.  Thanks to all of them for the countless hours of volunteer service they've given to the town over the years.


The Booster Club was also successful in obtaining Sioux County's only set of Burma Shave Signs in a program sponsored by Our Iowa magazine.  The signs are located just north of Ireton.


Members of the Booster Club Board are:  Dustin Houlton, President; Tim Bonnema, Vice-President; Kris Ebel, Secretary; Becky Gradert, Treasurer; Don Mulder, Ag Rep; Mike Tiedeman and Curt Kluver.


Contact one of the board members if your business or family would like to become a member or to volunteer for activities!
