Member Announcements & Events
I need your help, Kearney. I'm looking for community events to put in the I-35 North magazine calendar for the upcoming issues of April, May, and June . I prefer to keep the events to Kearney if possible. And remember, they need to be public events - not kids' birthday parties, etc. :-) Email details to Kristin@engagepublications.com . Thanks in advance!

The American Legion is the nation’s largest wartime veterans service organization, committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow service members and veterans.

The Kearney Chamber was contacted this week by Army Veteran, Will Akin, looking for a sponsor or sponsors to help send 'one male applicant from Kearney High School' to the American Legion Boys State.

According to Akin, "This is a record year for applications and we have more than we can financially support. We have 9 boys and 8 girls (for girls state) and we’re looking for sponsors."

Please contact the Chamber office ASAP if you know of a business or organization who would like to sponsor this Kearney student to attend. The cost is $500 and applications have to be in by March 1st to secure a spot. Thanks for your help!!!

Chamber members and prospects (over 500 individual email addresses), posted on the Chamber website, and social media sites. If you are interested in sponsoring an edition of the Chamber Chat e-newsletter contact Stacie at stacie@kearneychamber.org .

Deadlines for article submission: Noon each Thursday.

Who may submit articles and/or photos: The newsletter accepts submissions from any member.

Desired content: Content can be anything newsworthy about your business. Suggestions include:
• New hires or promotions
• Awards won
• New product or service
• Description of services available
• New location or hours
• Special upcoming events or promotions

Format:
All photos and flyers should be jpg files. They can be color or B&W. Articles should be 500 words or less. A short announcement (one to three sentences) is also encouraged. If you’re announcing a new hire or promotion, a portrait photo of the employee is nice to send as well.
IMPORTANT: All text should be in Word document form – NO PDF files, please. Do not embed art, photos, logos etc. into the document. Send them separately as jpg files. Do not use fancy formatting or use special fonts, colors, etc. All your formatting will be stripped out when the newsletter is created. Keep it simple.
