This is the first of what we hope becomes a monthly update for you, the reader.
We began our Chamber Golf Series, with our first tournament in July. The next one is October 8th. The Golf Series is being played at The Arrowhead Golf Course and we couldn’t be happier with the course.
Last week, we had a group come to town and set up a Pentagon Memorial for the 911 at Arvest park, next to the Million Building. It was a solemn but great reminder to never forget what happened that day.
This past month we were happy to have two new companies join our chamber. RealONE with Ashley Riley is a new real estate company. Stride Mortgage Company is new to the area as well, but Christi John isn’t new. She’s available to help you with your home mortgage like she’s been doing for years. It’s always exciting when people venture out on their own to realize their dreams. Join us in congratulating them.
This year’s Membership Directory will be coming out soon, available for the Chamber Member’s Banquet on the 23rd. The McAlester Newspaper always does a wonderful job putting that together for us. One of the things we are incredibly proud of is our Leadership McAlester class. The annual class is one of the greatest benefits to being a chamber member. The networking and the knowledge gained from this class is immeasurable. We are looking forward to this year’s program that begins on September 29th.
Looking ahead, keep an eye out for details about the Christmas Parade, job fairs, and our annual rodeo in March. We have other things on the horizon that we will soon update you about, but one thing you can do is to keep an eye on our facebook page and listen to our weekly radio show on Friday mornings on KNED.
See you next time.
