June 4th Chamber of Commerce General Meeting Highlights
The crowd was in an informally festive mood for our quarterly evening meeting. The sprits and food was great. If you missed the June meeting you missed the opportunity to win some fun prizes.
This month’s website spotlight winner was Jay Kurtz with STL On Line, Inc and the Chamber Chatter spotlight winner was Jean Tucker with Rockwood Bank. Magnolia’s Garden donated a huge beautiful floral arrangement won by Dennis Cunningham of Cunningham - Millard - Cantriel Funeral Home. Since Dennis sees and smells more than enough flowers at the funeral home, he gave the arrangement to our lovely Ramada hostess server, Doris. Rockwood Bank brought in golf balls and a cooler for the drawings and American Solutions for Business gave away a summer fun pack of promotional items won by none other than Inferno Promos – another promotional products business!
Mayor Coffey To the Rescue:
Due to pending legislation, our scheduled speaker Senator Jack Jackson was unable to escape Jef City to attend. Mayor Kevin Coffey filled in and enlightened us with some of the key projects in the area:
