Hello I am Brenda Bengard, Mayor of Exira. I want to welcome you to our town and I hope you come back often. We may be a small town ( population 840) but we have several annual events that have people coming back year after year.

The Community Club, Lions, Masons just to name a few have been working and achieving many good things all year long:

  •  Super Shopping Bowl (February)
  • Lions St. Patrick's Day Meal (March)
  • Easter Egg Hunt
  • Trivia Nights
  • Hwy 71 Garage Sales (May)
  • Breakfasts by the Lions & Masons
  • Car/Tractor Ride & Show (June)
  • Road Run 10K/5K/Walk/Run
  • 4th of July Parade/Rodeo/Rides/ Fireworks & more
  • National Night Out (City, Sheriff, Community Club, Lions, Masons & Fire Department)
  • Lions Garden Tractor Pull
  • Fall Festival
  • Festival of Light          

I may have missed a few events but as you can see Exira has alot going on and without the support of the whole community these events would not take place. I would like to thank each and every person for working so hard who continue "Keeping Exira on the Map".

See you soon.

Brenda Bengard

Mayor of Exira            

On a personal note June 26, 2015:

Today we lay to rest Jeff Jensen. He was a son, brother, husband, father, grand father,, uncle, Cop, City Council Member, Fireman, and I hope he consider me his friend. He will be missed by everyone he touched in his life. Rest in peace dear friend. Keep his family in your thoughts, Linda, Tina, Chad, Angie, and his grandchildren , Jayden, Emma, Rylan, his sisters , Marsha, Vicky, Peggy, and Kim.

Thank you
