The leaves are turning and it is time for football, the fall play and all the other fall activities. Good luck to everyone participating, coaching and organizing. Things have been steadily progressing at the Bondurant Chamber during the last month, too. We are pleased to say our new website is getting closer to being fully built, and we hope to have it up and running before too long.
We still have some spots left for home page sponsors on our website. Please contact Molly Suarez, executive director, at either 515-771-8316 or email@example.com if you are interested. We are offering a two-year advertising opportunity at a 25 percent discount. Your business would be allowed a 30-second video to showcase your business and what you do best for your customers or clients.
Hopefully you had a chance to check out the newest addition to our school district at the ribbon cutting for Morris Elementary School. The school is for kindergarten through second grade children and was definitely needed; especially as our district is growing at such a high rate.
If you have driven around town much at all during the past several years, you cannot help but notice the growth that is all around our community. With this growth comes opportunity and responsibility. We will all benefit as our town grows by having more access to the amenities enjoyed by larger communities. We will also have the responsibility to work with those who are moving to Bondurant and help them feel welcome. We should also support those businesses who choose to focus on Bondurant. With our support they can, in turn, support us in a mutually beneficial way.
The Bondurant Chamber is excited to provide you with a Lunch and Learn opportunity on Oct. 23 from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Bondurant Community Library. The cost to attend is $10; this includes lunch. Jeff Meislahn, FLMI, FFSI, is a financial services representative of Princor, a division of Principal Financial Group. The workshop — “Shifting Gears: Considerations and Strategies for Pre-Retirees” — will provide information on hazards you may face, Social Security and turning savings into income in retirement. This event is packed full of information that is applicable to anyone, of any age, who desires to retire.
The Board of Directors of the chamber will be meeting in November to discuss our plan for 2015 and your input would be greatly appreciated. If there are things we are doing well, or that we could do better or that we are not doing but you feel we should, please let us know. Our primary objective is to provide our members with an advantageous way to engage potential customers and clients. Your information will help us make an effective plan to benefit our whole community.
