One of the exciting things about being on the Chamber Board is the opportunity to welcome new Chamber members and then let you, the citizens of our great community, know more about them.
This past month we welcomed Hurd Real Estate, a development and investment firm based here in Des Moines. The firm owns and manages a portfolio of more than 90 income-producing commercial properties in 10 cities throughout the Midwest and Southwest. They are a developing the Hickman and 63rd area here in Windsor Heights. We also welcome Z’s Fresh Start Cleaning. The company, based in West Des Moines, thinks everybody can use a fresh start so they help with home cleaning to janitorial services. And you know what? We’ve got several more to announce next month.
Join us at the Windsor Heights Lutheran Church on Sunday, Sept. 28 at 3 p.m. for a ribbon cutting to celebrate the new addition to the church — which just happens to be a member of the Chamber.
Windsor Heights City Hall Open House
This is so exciting for us. Join the Chamber and city officials on Tuesday, Oct. 7 at 5 p.m. for a ribbon cutting and open house at the new city hall. Mayor Diana Willits, city council and staff will dedicate the new location at 1145 66th St. This move will be a welcome addition to our community and ease the crowding at the current city hall, which will remain the headquarters for the police and fire departments. Refreshments and conversation for all. See you there.
Because time is money, why not accelerate the networking opportunity? That’s exactly what we’re doing with the Des Moines West Side Chamber on Oct. 15. Members will meet more people in a short amount of time with the goal of getting to know others and then extend that business opportunity. Save the date — Monday, Oct. 15 at noon at the Colby Park Community Building.
A huge thank you
By the time you read this we’ll have had a successful Windsor Heights Chamber Golf Outing. A big thank you to our presenting sponsor, Colby Interests and to sponsors 3E, the Windsor Heights Hy-Vee, Hurd Real Estate/Development, the many volunteers from the Chamber and, of course, the golfers who attended. Thank you all.
