Progressive Luncheon– April 20 @Brackett’s Crossing Country Club
Greetings from your Chamber Chair - Dawn Schulberg - Premiere Dance Academy May is here and that brings graduations, confirmations, boating, baseball, and lots of fun in the sun on our beautiful lake. I hope everyone can take advantage of what our beautiful city offers. Go out and enjoy our shops, parks, our neighborhoods and lake!! The past few months have brought us many new businesses to our Chamber. Thank you to all the members that have renewed or recently joined. We are a supportive chamber whose goal is to help our members however we can. If you have ideas or questions about anything, we are happy to listen and help! We held our progressive luncheon at Bracketts Crossing On April 20th. It was a large group of people (96!) and as always, lots of fun! Meeting and greeting our strong business leaders and getting to know each other more helps us all become a better community. Thank you for contributing to “Bling it On”!! It has become a great tool to bring your business to the forefront of our meetings. Our earnings are well over the $700 mark and I was able to match someone’s donation this last time. That was great!!! Here are our upcoming Events - We will be entertaining Senior Citizens with our Annual Spring Luncheon on Monday, May 2nd. This event is always a success and extremely popular with our seniors. Thanks to our
event sponsors this year: All Saints Senior Living, Blahnik Law Office, Bryant’s Handiworks, Club Prior-City of Prior Lake, Goldsmith Eye Care, Integra Telecom, Keystone Senior Living-Prior Lake, KleinBank, St. Gertrude’s Health & Rehabilitation Center, and a HUGE thank you to those businesses who donated prizes and their personal time to help brighten someone’s day. I hope you will consider signing up to be a hole sponsor or get a foursome together to golf on Monday June 6 at the beautiful course at The Meadows. As always, I appreciate your support and commitment to the Chamber. It takes a strong community of business leaders to make our active Chamber continue toward success.
