Thank you to everyone who attended the Chamber’s annual dinner in January. A special thanks goes out to Copper Creek Golf Club and Events Center for hosting the event and Great Caterers of Iowa, Momma CT’s Cupcakes and Over the Top for a delicious dinner and fabulous desserts.
The 2014 annual dinner was once again a huge success. We had the largest turnout we have had, even surpassing last year with even more businesses in attendance. Congratulations to our Citizen of the Year Paul Rogness, Volunteer of the Year Brenda Reichert, Business of the Year Momma CT’s Cupcakes and Pillar of Service Becca Squiers. We cannot thank you all enough for your contributions in 2014 and hope you will continue to lead the way in 2014.
I would like to thank outgoing board members Cher Brown, Christina Anderson, Holly Bernal, Marta McCauley and Jill Meyer for their outstanding service in 2013. They all added extraordinary ideas and kept things moving in a successful direction. They will be replaced this year by Adam Choat, Mary Hamilton-Ross, Lance Hoffman, Barrett Rogness, Jodi Urich and Chelle Williams. I am excited to see the great outcomes from the board this year. I can already tell we have a lot of talent and enthusiasm on this year’s board.
Everyone is welcome to join the Pleasant Hill Chamber of Commerce whether you are a one-person business that operates out of your home or a larger company with multiple locations and a large number of employees. We even have individual members with no business affiliation.
I would like to extend an invitation to all the businesses in and around Pleasant Hill to join our Chamber. The Chamber gives you a great opportunity to network with others and show off your business. Remember, no one can sell your business like you can, and if you take advantage of the opportunities, you will see results. Here are a few of the upcoming events to get involved in:
Networking Lunch Club. Every second and fourth Thursday of each month at a Chamber member restaurant.
Chill On The Hill at Copper Creek Lake Park on Friday nights, starting the last Friday in May through the end of June.
The Chamber’s Annual Golf Outing. Friday, June 6, Terrace Hills Golf Course.
Jazz In July at Copper Creek Lake Park, Friday, July 25. New this year. We are very proud to be the first ever location on the east side to host this fantastic event.
Family Funfest, Saturday, July 26.
With each of these events comes an opportunity for a variety of different sponsorships which will allow you to showcase your business at the event as well as have your name featured on any advertising, flyers, etc. Each committee will be setting up sponsorship opportunities which will be distributed to our membership one it is established.
If you cannot donate financially, consider donating your time instead. We have the best group of volunteers, and we are always looking for more. Whether it be taking money or helping with set-up, we can always use a helping hand.
If you are interested in becoming a member or being involved with one of our events, please call the chamber off at 261-0466.
