Fireworks Stand a Success – on to the next!

Kimberly tries to talk her parents into the BIG firecracker!

I’m back in the Chamber office now and want to thank Mickey for filling in for me last week writing the Chamber Chatter column.

Every time we’re in the midst of a big event or project, I say “when this is over, I’ll have time to relax for a bit”; but then before you know it, I’m running 100 miles an hour with my hair on fire on another plan.  Someone pointed that out to me once and I explained that it’s just my way of compartmentalizing. If you look at everything that the Chamber does all year long, it would be overwhelming; so I focus on one at a time, but with an eye on the next few things coming down the pike.

The fireworks stand, although physically exhausting, was a big success!  The funds we raised through this stand allow us to keep the lights on and office operating; so thank you to everyone who supported us!

Next up on our calendar is the Grand Opening Celebration at Kay’s Pharmacy on July 10th from 12noon-6pm, manning the Think Local First booth at the Tri-County Free Fair, and Horse Apple Bingo Saturday night!

On August 2nd, we’ll be premiering a new event from the Chamber’s Fun Committee: the Wild Wench Photo Scavenger hunt!  Check out the event page on Facebook, stop in the Chamber office, or see any Fun Committee member for more details!
