Our first networking dinner for 2015 will be March 31 at 6:00 at the Henry County Extension Office with appetizers sponsored by Henry County Rural Diabetes (Mona Huff), and dinner by All the Way Shoppe (Linda and Darrell Aldridge) at 6:30. We really need a sponsor for the dinner, and if your company would enjoy sharing information about what it does, we welcome you to call me at 845-0806. You have time on the program to provide information and your logo will be on the program. We have 2 levels of sponsorship: $250 which give you 2 dinner tickets and shared time on the program and $500 which gives 4 dinner tickets and more time to discuss your business. Please let me know of your interest by March 15.

We have tentatively scheduled an evening of discussion of motivation with Tommy Lanham, Chamber President, leading you in some ways to motivate your employees and perhaps yourself. We will also hear from George Saliba, the owner of four McDonalds (Eminence, Pendleton. LaGrange, and Clarksville, Indiana) who came to America not speaking a word of English but who has been motivated to make the American dream come true. I think you will enjoy hearing our local people share this program with you.

We look forward to seeing you on March 31. It is our sincere hope that the weather will decide it is spring, and we will not have to wear our snow boots.
Please return your dinner reservations ($20 per person) by March 26. Thank you for being a Chamber member, and I look forward to seeing you on the 31st.

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.

Good cold morning, I hope you all had no problems with the snow and ice. I just wanted to remind you that the deadline of Feb. 27 is coming up this week for your ad in the This is Henry Co. magazine. If you are not in there, how will people know you exist? Relocation information is important to people who call for it, and this lets them know what we have. Henry County has wonderful businesses and the rural atmosphere is loved by so many. Where better to raise a family??? Shout it out that you are here and ready to do business! I always look forward to each new magazine, and I think I have a copy for every year I have worked with the Local to do this. I also thank them for all of their hard work.

Your invitation to our next networking dinner will be mailed shortly. Mark March 31 on your calendar and save the date. I am in need of sponsors for the dinner. If you are interested in having your logo and business name on the cover of the program, time on the program to share info, and let everyone know what you do, give me a call (845-0806) or respond to this e-mail.

ALSO (Day at the Races): I must have a number for the races this week so we could reserve seats. If you did NOT e-mail me about wanting tickets, please let me know no later than tomorrow (Tuesday, February 24). I only have 12 now, so if no one else wants to go, I will cancel the order. I have to have at least 24 to be a group on millionaire's row. Just let me know if you wish to go. I am trying for May 7 and it is a late day and early evening event. The lady I spoke with thought the first race would be about 4 and they are calling it Twilight Racing. This is different from our past times at the races.

Hope your week is good and NO more snow!!!

Thank you for supporting Henry County and helping to let people know who we are and what we have to offer. If you have questions, call me at 845-0806 or 641-1512.

Just a few things to update at this time:

Several have asked for more info (regarding the sidewalk project). I...wanted to let you know that the Leadership Class 2014 has their brochures ready on their sidewalk project at the new park. They are available here at the office, the Henry Co. Library, and will be placed around the county. I hope you will be able to support this great project, and it is tax deductible as a charitable donation. If you have questions, call the Chamber.

This Is Henry County

It is that time of year again to advertise in the This is Henry County magazine that will be published with the Henry County Local on March 25. This magazine showcases our county, and your ad lets people far and wide know you are here and ready to do business with them. These magazines have been sent to Maine, California, New York and so many other places in our relocation packets. Not only are they sent all over the country, but also we gave out over 800 at the state fair in our Pride of the Counties booth. That is not counting the people who live locally who read and keep it as a reference throughout the year. People who receive them have come by the office when they move to Henry County and tell me of their enjoyment of seeing the many businesses located in our county. But if you are not in the book, they may never know you have a great business to share with them. Churches, organizations, industries, and service organizations are encouraged to give their information through an ad as well.

Ads from 1/8 page to full are offered. As in the past, chamber members receive a 15% discount on the ad and a 1/8 page is only $81.00. Prices for the slick pages and inside pages are on the order form. You can either fill out the order form (LINK HERE and print form) and mail it to the Henry Co. Local or call Barbara at 845-2858 or e-mail her at advertising@hclocal.com. Deadline for ads is Feb. 27. The Local will bill you for your ad after publication.

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).
