Just a reminder to those who put recipes in the 2018 Miss Columbus cookbook: You will need to prepare that dish and provide for the Tasting Bee, June 1. If possible, place your dish in a disposable container, bring to community building on your way to work. I or committee members will be here around 8 a.m., or at least have it here by 10:30 a.m. Tasting Bee tickets are $7 per person, they may be purchased in advance for any of the Miss Columbus candidates. The 2018 Miss Columbus cookbook will be available on that day also at $15. You may pre-order your book with any of the Miss Columbus candidates.

The All School Reunion/City Celebration will meet this Wednesday, May 23, during the lunch to proof the Sesquenintal Book. The final meeting will be held at noon on Wednesday, June 6. If you have not registered for the All School Reunion, you may do so at the Chamber office. Jim Green's band (Class of 1971) will be playing on Saturday evening. You must have registered for the all school and have your Alumni name tag on for admission. For an up to date schedule check out our Facebook page.

Membership is still available for the 150 Club for the City Celebration Sesquenintal. Membership is $150 for two and you will receive polo shirts, special sesquicentennial coins, book, tickets to Saturday Masonic breakfast and dinner on Friday evening at the State Theatre, plus special seating for the opening of the time capsule. Register with the Chamber office.

Calibrated Forms/Folder Express is hosting a special tour of their facility for Chamber members at 8:30 a.m. on June 6. If you haven't taken a tour lately, this is your opportunity to see what is going on - so mark your calendar.

The last firework cookout is from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on June 14, in front of the community building. The firework fund is up to $7,500, so we have a little ways to go to reach the $10,000 mark. Of course, we are hoping with the last cookout we will reach the goal. Commerce Bank will be the grill master.

The CDF brochure is just about ready to take to the printer. If you want sometime listed in the schedule for CDF, we need it by May 30 - it will go to the printer on that day.
