Previous Chamber meeting
The Summersville chamber of Commerce met on Monday, January 11 at Community Bank, NA.
President Cathy Tuttle called the meeting to order at 12:04. Motion by Colleen Bradford, second Cathy Tuttle to approve minutes from December.
Discussion about the Christmas parade and the positive feedback. The money raised from the elementary queen candidates help pay for the parade prizes and expenses. The crowns were very nice and were an appreciated donation from Community Bank. Next year the elementary candidates will receive banners for their participation. Chamber members need to be thinking about a parade for the next parade to be held December 4, 2015.
President Tuttle said Cloyce Puckett brought a CD of the Christmas parade to the chamber. Many thanks to him. The lighting contest had nine participants and raised $45.
Easter is April 5, so the Chamber's annual Easter egg hunt will be April 4 in the square weather permitting.
Discussion about creating a corn maze in the fall on school property with help from the FFA and local farmers.
David Barnett made a motion to keep the same officers for next year. Second by Colleen Bradford. All voted in favor.
President Tuttle asked about moving the meeting date to Thursday at noon at KT Kitchen, so members can eat on their lunch hours. Motion by Merlyn Johnson, second by Colleen Bradford to change the meeting time and date to the first Thursday of the month at 12 noon. President Tuttle said she sent a plant from the chamber when KT Kitchen opened.
David Barnett asked that we put on next month's agenda information about an "Adopt a Christmas decoration" for the streets in Summersville. The street ornaments are from $250-$400 depending on the lights on them. Discussion about getting someone to build them and use LED lights. More later.
With no further business, motion by David Barnett to adjourn. Second by Merlyn Johnson.
Next meeting, February 5, Noon at KT Kitchen.
