I hope everyone had a happy holiday season and that 2006 is a great year for the Sikeston and Miner areas. I wanted to take time to mention a few things coming up soon for the SACC staff and membership.
The Sikeston Area Chamber of Commerce will be publishing our fifth edition of Images Magazine this year with a release date of April 10. I am very excited about this year's issue and the stories that will be told about the Sikeston and Miner area but one of the things I am even more excited about is the video streaming that will be a new feature to our Images Website.
In case you have never been to our Images Website just go to our Website, www.sikeston.net and click on the Images Magazine on the home page. There you will find the current issue with the articles and pictures in addition to listings of important numbers, such as government offices, school phone numbers and so on. There are other features such as our past issues that you can click on to see the contents of each magazine. The new video streaming will be added this year and will be a collection of past and current scenes of our area.
So much information is now being given out by way of the Internet we are very excited to be adding this new item to our Website to show off the best our communities have to offer. Take time to go to our Website and check out what we have and what is available through our Images link and you will be pleasantly surprised.
Along with our new Website features we continue to host our annual SACC events such as the Business/Education Expo. The Expo will be coming up on Thursday, Feb. 16, at the Sikeston Senior High School Field House. The Expo will run from 8:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. Area high school students (14 different high schools last year) will be attending as well as the general public. SACC members are given first opportunity for booth space. This is a great opportunity to get your name out. If you are interested in participating please contact the Chamber at 573-471-2498 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like more information about the Chamber of any of our events please don't hesitate to contact us.
