Thank You Chamber Member
The Chamber would like to send out a special Thank You to chamber member, Dave Corder with A&D Custom Cruisers.  Dave donated his time and painting supplies to refinish the chamber's "Ground Breaking Shovels".  They were painted a beautiful gold color and they came out looking remarkable.  Stay tuned as we hope to be using them soon for an upcoming ground breaking event.
