Chair’s Message – March 2017
In a little over a week March will be here, what happened to the first two months of 2017? February brought us some beautiful weather and a great Chamber Luncheon. The February Membership Luncheon was held at Catering to You Banquet Center, and if you weren’t able to make it you missed out on some really good food, thanks Jon, and a motivational presentation from our guest speaker Alfred Long with Renewed Mind Life Coaching. Our Lunch sponsors, Catholic Family Services & Boy Scouts of Greater St. Louis, shared information with us on their community involvement and the services that they provide. We also welcomed our newest members, Dodge Mayflower Moving & Storage and Total Access Urgent Care. Lastly, we recognized three of our outgoing board members Rick Dorsey, Melissa Rakers, and Dhari Pearson. They have finished their three-year term serving on your Chamber Board of Directors and I would like to thank them for their hard work and dedication while on the board. We also had a Business After Hours at Cannoli’s. I would like to thank Tom Freesmeier and his staff for hosting. Everyone enjoyed the food and the atmosphere.
I mention these events because as I said earlier, if you don’t attend these events you’re missing out on the chance of meeting fellow North County business owners like yourself, priceless networking opportunities, and some of the best food North county has to offer. If you haven’t hosted a Business After Hours think about it. It is a great way to showcase your business and let everyone experience what it is that you do. So next month in March attend the luncheon, Wednesday, March 15th at Glen Echo Country Club, put it on your calendar and give it a try. Also add the March Business after Hours for Thursday, March 9th from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm at Johnny Londoff Chevrolet. As they say “try it you’ll like it.”
Thought for the month:
“Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won’t, so that you can spend the rest of your life like most people can’t.”
