Hello Chamber Members,

Someone by the name of Mike is calling Chamber members saying he is doing a survey, under the guise of working with your Chamber and using my name, to get personal information about your business.  We are NOT doing any PHONE surveys of the membership, at this time.  

We ARE doing an email survey about proposed tax increases.  We would like your responses to this three question survey, if you haven't already done so, to get our members input on this issue that directly affects you. Two significant increases are proposed to both payroll and net profits taxes to fund projects in this year's city budget.  Please take one minute to give us your input - no later than Friday noon, June 2.  Go to here to participate.

Restoring the Spiritual Center Project

The largest preservation project at Shaker Village since the initial site restoration in the 1960s, Restoring the Spiritual Center will preserve, protect and interpret the site's two most iconic buildings-the 1820 Meeting House and the 1824 Centre Family Dwelling. The $5.1 million rehabilitation project is part of a multi-phase effort to revive the preservation of Shaker Village's rich cultural landscape, while equipping historic spaces for new community-centered programs and activities.
The ceremonial project launch is planned for 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 3 on the front steps of the Centre Family Dwelling. From noon until 2 p.m., representatives from John Milner Architects will join Shaker Village history experts to host four distinct, 30-minute tours that talk about preservation in a global way and will use features from the building to address specific planned improvements.  
Two performances of solo Shaker Music will take place in the 1820 Meeting House at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Guests are invited to help "close the Meeting House and Centre Family Dwelling" at 7 p.m. that evening. Other daily tours, talks and activities will continue as planned. 
The event is free and open to the public.
Mark your calendar for June 20 as the Danville-Boyle County Chamber of Commerce hosts a follow-up Community Forum on Workforce. The meeting will be to share work underway since issues were identified in a February 21 Workforce Development community forum.  That meeting was to invite dozens of interested agencies and individuals to meet and discuss issues and resources in our community.  As a result of facilitated small groups, a list of issues was developed and the Chamber's workforce committee prioritized those and began work on two.  This meeting continues the discussion and shares the work underway on developing a pre-employment training course and the implementation of a resource list into the Bluegrass and Heart of Kentucky United Way's 211 Resource Directory.  The meeting will be held at the Boyle County Fire Headquarters, located at 1500 Lebanon Road, and will begin at 8:30 a.m.
