Diane:

As an ex-Chamber of Commerce President, I have to tell you ... these volunteers do not get the appreciation they deserve.  How nice that you took the time to showcase their efforts and accomplishments!  I'm sure they appreciated it greatly ...

Have a great Holiday!

Diane, Chambers of Commerce do a lot of good work and it is hard to find good people to lead them.  I am glad to see that you found some good ones for yours.

Diane, just stopping by to say Hey! Looks like a great party and a group of wonderful volunteers. Communities really benefit when people are willing to give something back and/or be a leader. Good on you!

June:  When these posts are shown, the cities themselves get an opportunity to get spotlighted for the community.  Hopefully this will breed new members!  Thanks for taking the time to come in!

Diane--Great localism post featuring such dedicated volunteers.  Isn't it wonderful how helping fellow AR members are, too.  Kudos to Gene for his offer to assist.

The music is another great holiday treat, however we didn't have time to fit one of our favorites in our schedule.

Enjoy the holiday.

congrats on your chamber position Diane - it's a great networking opportunity - I used to belong and be active when we lived in St. John, years ago, since we moved to Valpo - I'm more involved at church.

Nice way to give recognition to those who serve your community.

Sincerely,

Grace

Thank you Grace.  In addition to the networking, it is a way to get involved in issues pertaining to the community, and help when possible.  Last year we were able to assist a homeless family get into one of our places.
