Good Morning,

Wouldn't it be nice if the weather would stay like this, but we all know it will not - so enjoy while it lasts.

Girl Scouts have their annual cookie sales going on, I know you can pick some up at 4-State Printing, if you can't wait to get your hands on some.

The board of directors at last weeks meeting decided to pick up the Miss Columbus program for this year. They did not want to see the program lost, as it is good for the young women that participate. A committee was formed and they will begin work now. It is a little late to be starting the program for 2017 so they are working hard. If you would like to help with the program contact the Chamber office. Several members have stepped forward to help.

The first 4th of July cook out will be Thursday, March 9, from 11a.m. to 2 p.m. in front of Maple UnCommon Hotel & Gallery. We will need help during those hours. Let the office know if you can help, Thanks.

Have a good week.
