I cannot believe that summer is nearly over. If your summer was anything like mine, it just flew by.
What a flurry of activity and fun summer 2012 has been. Hopefully you got to catch a few days of the London 2012 Olympics. It certainly is inspiring to see so many Iowans competing at that level and doing so well.
The Waukee Area Chamber of Commerce has been very busy with all of our summer events, too. We have held a number of ribbon cuttings recently for our member businesses including Achieving Inner Peace, Growing Again Children’s Resale, Heeling Hands Massage Therapy, RE/MAX Innovations, Thai Basil, Waukee Patch and Villa Catering.
The Second Annual Cow Patty Business Bingo was another huge success. It did take Josie over four hours to decide a winner, but it was a great networking event. I think all in attendance had a fun time. Congratulations to State Savings Bank on winning a full page ad in the 2012/2013 Waukee Chamber Directory and Community Guide (created by Waukee Living magazine) along with the second Annual Cow Patty Business Bingo trophy, donated by American Awards. Thank you to Gilcrest/Jewett Lumber Company, Inc. for hosting and to all members who sponsored a bingo square.
