Gary’s View From The Shore…
The planning has been going on since last September and now it’s time for The Big Show. The 127th Annual Clear Lake 4th of July Celebration runs from Wednesday, June 30th thru Monday, July 5th.. The Evans Carnival will take over the area around City Park with rides and games for everyone and music will be presented in the bandshell every day. It’s Clear Lake’s time to shine and we hope you will join us for all the fun. Remember, with the holiday falling on Sunday, the big 4th of July Parade will be held on Monday morning at 10AM. The fireworks will be held as usual on the evening of July 4th.
On a number of occasions in these newsletter articles and in other mediums, I have talked about Chamber Membership and the importance of having a strong membership base. Sometimes, I think we lose sight of the fact that if the Chamber doesn’t have members, none of the great events that happen in Clear Lake would take place. All of the events that are sponsored by the Chamber are designed to do one thing, bring people to town to shop at our businesses. We thank all of our members for their support and encourage them to talk with their fellow business people who are not members and suggest that they too, join the Clear lake Area Chamber of Commerce.
We would like to welcome those who have joined the Chamber over the last few weeks: Lake Liquors, Wine & Spirits, North Iowa Vocational Center, S & B Novelties, Titan Pro, Tony’s Tire, Truck & Towing and individual member Edwina & Leo Formanek.
Emerson’s by the Lake in Clear Lake was presented the Chamber’s Customer Service Award for the second quarter of 2010. Emerson’s was nominated by one of their customers for giving outstanding customer service.We congratulate Ken and his staff. Nomination forms are available on the Chamber’s website, www.clearlakeiowa.com or at the Chamber Office. Members are free to make copies of the form and use as bag stuffers in order to encourage their customers to make a nomination. The next Customer Service Award will be presented in September.
The Chamber has unveiled its new logo. You can see the new logo in this month’s newsletter. You’ll be seeing it more and more on letterhead in advertisements and on Chamber retail merchandise. Let us know what you think.
