We had a great morning here in the Chamber office last week when a representative from all of our fireworks stand volunteer groups gathered to receive their share of the proceeds. The Chamber wrote checks totaling $1,463.90 to 6 different organizations: Beta Sigma Phi, Xi Gamma Epsilon chapter; the Family Resource Exchange; Herington Municipal Hospital Auxiliary; VFW Post 1281; Modified Dolls, Kansas Chapter; and Beta Sigma Phi, Preceptor Gamma Gamma chapter. We want to thank all of these groups who volunteered!
I would like to thank everyone that came out to the Chamber’s fireworks stand and supported our fundraising event! The stand was a rousing success! All of the proceeds from our stand will be going back into our communities. We had six groups that volunteered with us in the stand and will be receiving a percentage of our proceeds: the Family Resource Exchange, the Hospital Auxiliary, the VFW, both local chapters of Beta Sigma Phi, and the Modified Dolls. Their help was greatly appreciated and it will be our pleasure to make donations to their groups.
It’s Tri-County Free Fair week. If you see a member of the Fair Board, be sure and give them a pat on the back; they are working extremely hard to put on another great event that pulls people into our community.
This Saturday the Chamber will have our Baa Baa Bingo event. Previously it was Horse Apple Bingo, but this year we went with sheep. Get your ticket from me or any Chamber board member and have a chance to win $500 in Local Bucks.
