NEWS IN BRIEF
The Flag Marks the Spot
We're taking the Chamber's marketing literally to the street, thanks to the creation of a new feather flag bearing the Chamber's logo. The flag can be used for ribbon cuttings, grand openings or any other event involving the Chamber.
Congratulations to our very own Colley & Company that celebrates its 65th anniversary this year! Colley & Company is a third generation, family-owned wholesaler of steel building supplies and agricultural products. They provide materials to a wide variety of businesses: lumber yards, roofing wholesalers, drywall supply houses and concrete pre-cast manufacturers.
The Chamber's networking event at The Grille July 19 drew about a dozen members who enjoyed appetizers and good conversation. Look for more events like this in the future.
