Ribbon Cuttings
A ribbon cutting was held by the Grove Area Chamber of Commerce ambassadors for  Louise Templin  on Thursday, November 15 at the Chamber office. Louise recently joined the Chamber as an individual member. She saw an individual membership as an opportunity to meet new friends, find out more about the businesses in the area, and as a way to become more aware of how to help in the community. 
The Grove Area Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors and staff gathered for a ribbon cutting at Burke Eyecare on Thursday, November 15 to commemorate their Grand Opening and the complete remodel of their building. Dr. Burke has been practicing for the past 25 years, with the past 3 years being in Grove.
