It’s that time of year when it is cold out, so make plans to join us for a great night indoors to celebrate the many accomplishments of 2013. The annual dinner will be held on Feb. 13 at Stoney Creek Inn with food catered by Mama Lacona’s. We will recognize our 2013 Business Persons of the Year, Jolene and Shane Goodman, Citizen of the Year, Willona Goers, and Ambassador of the Year, Jane Dirks. Congratulations to all of you on your award, and thank you for your efforts that make a real difference in Johnston. Please contact Heather at 515-276-9064 or firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot by Friday, Feb. 7.
There are many events for Chamber members to attend. Make sure to go to our website www.johnstonchamber.com, like us on Facebook or follow us on twitter to learn more about upcoming events.
Look for the Johnston directory in your mailbox in the next coming weeks. Please use the directory as your guide to support all the local businesses to make Johnston the best place to work, play, shop and raise a family. The directory contains all the Chamber members’ contact information, information about the highly ranked Johnston School District, City of Johnston and Johnston Economic Development. If you do not receive yours or would like an additional copy please contact Heather at the Chamber office.
