President’s Report – June 2019
In a lot of ways, summer never ends in St. Louis. Before we can even tell that Spring has arrived, summer has sashayed itself to our daily lives, bringing with it the warmth of the sun and summer fun. Did you see us at the Valley of Flowers parade? Our very own Queen Candidate Hannah Crowder was chosen as Special Maid for this year’s court, and our float was chosen as the Best Organization float! Thank you to our amazing team that built our Loretta Academy Building: Mike Moehlenkamp, Gary’s Auto; Kitty Harrison, Johnny Londoff Chevrolet; Julie Berthold, Aperion Care Hidden Lake; and of course, our very own Chamber trio! And thank you to our Chamber members, friends, and family that walked with us during the beautiful day!
