I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who worked on or donated to the 33rd Annual Farmers Recognition Banquet. It was a great evening celebrating or agricultural community. Congratulations to our farm families: Donnie Deline family in Charleston, Tony Johnson family in Vanduser, J.W. Minehart family in New Madrid and the Harold Fleeman family in Puxico.
The Chamber had a very exciting membership Drive Blitz Day with the following new members joining: The Leaping Frog, Ronald Galemore Architect, New Madrid County Port Authority, New Frontier Financial Services, New Deliverance Missionary Baptist Church, Lawn Design/Northside Plant Supply, Holiday Inn Express, G&D Communications, Fisherman's Net, First Choice Healthcare, China Garden, Buttons and Bows and Bill Lewis. We want to welcome these new SACC members and we look forward to working with them.
As we head into the Christmas holidays, the Chamber would like to remind our area residents to shop with the Sikeston and Miner area merchant members. These businesses continue to support the charitable efforts in our community and your patronage of their establishments will allow that support to continue. Look for the Sikeston Area Chamber of Commerce (SACC) sticker in their window to identify them as a Chamber member.
If you want to know what special events are taking place during the holidays, check the community calendar on our Website at www.sikeston.net.
Here are a few of the things listed:
December- The Sikeston Depot will feature international artist Paul Jackson. Jackson's medium is pure transparent watercolor.
Dec. 13 -- 16th Annual SEMO Farm Toy Show at the Ramada Inn. For more information call 573/ 628-3643.
Dec. 18 -- 12 p.m. Chamber Membership Luncheon at the Raudmont Inn.
As always if you have questions about the Chamber contact us through our Website or call 573-471-2498.
The SACC staff would like to wish everyone a blessed Christmas and a happy New Year.
