|CHAMBER LUNCHEON - Aug. 8th
We know that it is important to you, our
chamber member, that you get your business
information out to as many people as possible
with as much detail as possible. As you meet
other members one-on-one at events, you
have the opportunity to do this. But there must
be a more efficient way! There must be a way
that is more fun!
The next chamber luncheon on August
8th "Pitch Your
Business" gives you that chance....come on
out and take advantage of it! Surrounded by a
baseball theme, this luncheon will give each
chamber member who wishes, a chance
to 'pitch' their business for 45 seconds to all in
attendance. This is not one-on-one, but more
efficient and memorable.
RSVP early -- by 5pm Monday Aug 6th -- so
we can put you in the lineup. Also, if you
would like to attend and not pitch, let us know
that, too. Non-members in attendance will not
be able to pitch. All who plan to attend should
bring 90 business cards.

|AFTER HOURS/VOLUNTEER EVENT - Aug 21
The usual chamber After Hours event doesn't involve
rolling up your sleeves and digging in, being a part of
a project and volunteering.
On August 21st, there will be a Chamber After Hours
that isn't usual. It's unusually wonderful. Chamber
members who are interested in donating two hours of
their time can assist in the Kids Against Hunger
program, which will be held from 5:00-7:00pm at
Harris/Roselle, 402 E. Irving Park Road in Roselle.
Kids Against Hunger is a volunteer-driven effort to
distribute food in communities worldwide where
hunger and starvation
is rampant. Each week, as volunteers package
hundreds of much-needed food servings, they also
get a chance to talk, share, laugh and reconnect with
one another through the program. More importantly,
through their packaging efforts, volunteers learn and
reaffirm the importance of looking beyond themselves
and towards serving the needs of others.
you would like to be a part of this event, contact the
chamber office to RSVP as we gather together to
make a difference.
"When you feed a child, you feed our future."
|GOLF OUTING A SUCCESS
The weather was perfect; the course was
manicured; the golfers were plentiful. The
2007 "Golf Classic" was a success!
The chamber golf outing set at Klein Creek in
Winfield boasted 152 agile golfers, 42
generous sponsors, 10 delightful drink
sponsors, and 27 willing volunteers.
We thank all those who were a part of this
