President’s Report – November 2019
The season of gratefulness is upon us! November is a time to reflect and be thankful for the people we cherish and the daily life we are fortunate to live. Every day in November, let’s make a conscious effort to stop and think about just ONE thing we are thankful for… it may be your family, friends, business or it may be the car that takes you from point A to point B. There is so much joy in being thankful.
I’m so excited to announce our new incoming Board Members: Paul Manganelli, American Family Insurance; Derick Wellman, Amore Pizza; Mike Moehlenkamp, Gary’s Auto; Dr. Nettie Collins Hart, Hazelwood School District ; and Sara Savat, SSM Health DePaul Hospital. They will serve a 3 year term, starting January 2020.
As we near the end of 2019, please be sure to stop by and bring new un-wrapped toys to the chamber office, as well as cleaning supplies for our Holiday drive. I know we’re all excited about the holidays, let’s include those in our community that may be struggling during this time of the year.
