Clubs and Organizations

Oelwein is fortunate to have many dedicated, enthusiastic and hard-working groups of volunteers who devote their time, talents and efforts, working tirelessly in the community to benefit others. These active and community minded clubs and organizations provide opportunities for people of all ages throughout the year. Included in this group listing is OCAD's Positively Oelwein committee. Positively Oelwein was established in 2005 and has recently undergone revitalization efforts by its members to make bigger impacts within the community. Go to the Positively Oelwein page to learn more about the committee.

Oelwein Chamber

Oelwein was named "Hub City" because of the rail lines coming into town and the repair shops located there.
