Today we offer our condolences to the family of Joyce Elaine Mercer of Middlebourne, WV. Joyce was the owner/operator of Joyce’s Floral Bow-K located on Main Street in Middlebourne and a longtime Chamber member. We are grateful to Joyce for the years of beautiful floral arrangements that have brought comfort to so many. We wish her the peace and rest that she so richly deserves. Joyce is survived by her husband Scott Mercer; her children, Jimmy Mercer (Hope) of Cambridge, Ohio, Susan Scharf (Mike) of New Martinsville, Debbie and Jane Brown of Reader; her grandchildren, John Mercer (Amber) of Cambridge, Chase Mercer (Madison) of Cambridge, Sydney Mercer of Cambridge and Matthew Scharf of New Martinsville; her great grandchild Bentley Mercer of Cambridge, Ohio.; her sister Elizabeth Fraser (Evan) of Virginia; and her sisters-in-law, Connie McHenry (Tim) of Middlebourne and Nancy Mercer of Middlebourne.
The Small Business Breakfast Club has our first stop this coming Thursday, on February 24, 9:00-10:00am. We will be in Hundred at the Route 250 Corner Café for breakfast. We are also planning to offer on Zoom. I can’t tell you all of the information available through these sessions! Just take a look at our poster to see the agencies/organizations/businesses represented. If you plan on joining us in person, get there early and grab a delicious breakfast. The setting will be comfortable and cozy and the information will be useful in helping to build our communities. Hope to see you at the Café or on Zoom.

Each issue during Black History Month, the Chamber will be honoring West Virginians who have made significant contributions to our state and country.

This week, we turn our focus to:
