Hi, It is certainly looking a lot like Christmas with all of the towns lighting their beautiful decorations and having Santa visit. I am attaching a poem I found that sums up how working for the Chamber has made me a better person because of the many wonderful people I have met and had the honor of working for the betterment of Henry Co.

I will be out of the office Dec. 8-12, but plan to be in the week of the 15. If I can help with anything even if I am not in the office, please call me at 502-641-1512. That is my cell, and if I do not answer, leave a message and I will return the call. If the phone is in another room, I usually do not hear it.

Have a delightful holiday and I will look forward to working with and for you until the end of June 2015 when I retire (for the second time in my lifetime).

Pat Wallace, Executive Director

Chamber Ambassadors

The Board approved our working toward a way to help you get to know other chamber members and also help keep information flowing. We plan to start an Ambassadorís Club with interested volunteers, adjusting the ideas to fit our smaller organization.

The only requirement to be a Chamber Ambassador is that you be a employee or owner of a business in good standing with the Chamber or be an associate member and want to expand your knowledge of our business community. There are numerous ways to take part in this program. [[MORE ABOUT THIS PROGRAM ]] This gives you an opportunity to meet other chamber members, discuss ideas and problems in common, and strengthen both your business and the chamber.

If your business can benefit from our (Check) Henry County First campaign to keep money in Henry County, call the office to be a member. It costs the business nothing, and when a certificate is used in your business, let the Chamber know and a check is written for the amount of the certificate. We all win because that money stayed in Henry County. We have 15 retail businesses listed now, and we certainly could use more.

Maintaining your membership in the Chamber not only helps you, but it helps the entire community. If there were no chamber, businesses would have no unified voice to promote the county and its resources. Our executive director goes outside the county to meetings and events to promote Henry County. It is another arm to make sure Henry County stays successful.
