I don't know about you all, but I am ready for some nice warm weather.

Leadership Class from last week was rescheduled until April 23 for their Health session. A lot of the kids were out for other rescheduled activities.

If you are planning on attending the Legislative breakfast on April 16, 7:30 a.m. at Maple UnCommon Guest House, we need your RSVP by this Friday, so I have a count for breakfast. At present, both Rep. Houser and Senator Hildrebrand are planning on being their, unless of course, something in session makes them stay in Topeka.

The Columbus Day committee needs help. The company that has been doing inflatables the past several years, overbooked themselves and cancelled out our festival. Have left messages with a couple of other companies and none have called us back; so if you have a name or phone company of an inflatable company we would like to have suggestions. We also need someone to do the Children's Festival with games and activities for the kids and someone to do the Car Show, if no one steps forward we will not have one, which would only hurt the festival. We need activities for all ages. If you can help, let Janet Lindsey or the office know.

Registration comes in everyday for the All School Reunion, June 22 - 24. You can check out the activities planned on the Chamber Facebook page. Don't wait until the last minute to register, if you haven't gotten information from your Class, contact the Chamber office.

Several have already joined the 150 Club to celebrate the City of Columbus 150th Anniversary from the first platting of the community. To join, it is $150 and you get two tickets to a special dinner, two shirts, two sesquencinntial coins and a few other things.

We are at the $3,200 mark and you want $10,000 in fireworks, so there is a long way to go.

Come out and catch up on what is happening in Columbus.

We are still in need of Columbus Titan t-shirts for some Titan throws - any color, sport, etc. Thanks to Team Thread, Methodist Church Thrift Shop, Susan Schultz, Trish Carroll and Anita Davolt for helping out. It takes 20 shirts to make one throw, when we get one done will post so you can see what they look like. The plan is to do a raffle during the all school reunion.

Have a good week,

Jean
