Under Old Business, the Chamber Facebook page is down due to the fact that it was not attached to a person’s name. Someone is working on getting it going again. The Chamber website no longer exists. The Chamber needs to decide how to proceed. It was suggested to look into getting a college student to work with the Chamber, possibly from U Rock or Blackhawk, or the Chamber may go with Go Daddy or Vista Print or something similar.
The Chamber December Christmas Party took place Dec. 14 at Boxcars. A short meeting was held at 7 p.m., followed by a social hour at 7:30 p.m.
Under New Business, the Chamber will hold a bowling fundraiser tentatively scheduled for March 12 or April 19, 2017. The fundraiser will have 12 teams of five; so get your teams together! Business After 5 will be held April 19, 2017 at Country Pride Meats.
