Angie McPhie is working with the Rich County Times regarding summer
advertising for Chamber members, which will be in the form of either a full page
or a half page listing of each business in a business card format and will be
run twice a month for the summer season. The
cost to the Chamber would be $100 for a full page and $50 for a half page per
publication. The paper will also
give all individual members of the Chamber a discount on other ads in their
Smith made the motion that this form of advertising be approved, seconded by
Brandon Moldenhauer and that we can decide whether to go a full page or half
page when the membership list is completed.
Angie McPhie sent the Certificate of Membership to the meeting and they were

Angie did a beautiful job of making up these Certificates and they are
perfect for framing and hanging in a business.

become chairman of the Chocolate Festival 2009, and that we should make her
Chamber membership for the balance of 2008 and 2008-09 dues complimentary
because of this service. Unanimous

nominees for the offices of President and Vice President of the Chamber.

Steve Allred (Zions Bank in
) reported on the possibility of a bank for Garden City.
They are looking at a trailer for the summer.
Scott Anderson, President of Zions, came to the area to fact find.
They would have to have an armored car come over two to three times a
week to pick up cash and take it to town. Moving
cash from here in the summer is a problem, and this would be a good way to do it
at minimum expense. This is still
under consideration by Zions.
Steve Allred reported that the
is offering entertainment to locals and also to tourists all summer.
Saturday nights during the summer will almost always have an event. There
will be posters put out in the next week or so.
There will be opportunities to advertise.
This is also a good opportunity for fund raisers.
Currently they have a production of local people performing on Saturday
night at $6 per ticket. This is the
“First Annual Can you Believe IT” concert and is being presented by local
business people – talented or not – and very comical.
You can get tickets by calling the

great chef at the Center.

acquainted for all of the members.
