Chamber Insights - February 2013
The monthly newsletter of the Columbia-Adair County Chamber of Commerce, 201 Burkesville Street, Columbia, Kentucky 42718 (270) 384-6020 / firstname.lastname@example.org
Editor: Sue Stivers
President's Message: Roger Meadows
Feature Writers: Ramie Hutchison, Kanisha Frye, Kathy Johnson
The Purpose of the Columbia-Adair County Chamber of Commerce is to promote and enhance the Business, Cultural, Educational and Civic Well Being of Columbia and Adair County.
Thought of the Month
"Imagine what a harmonious world it could be if every single person... both young and old... shared a little of what he is good at doing."
At the beginning of each year, it is exciting to look back on the progress made by the Chamber and the community in the prior year. Even in these tough economic times, the Chamber was able to continue all of our annual events in 2012 such as the Annual Banquet and Awards, Annual Golf Tournament, Annual Picnic in the Park, Buy, Swap, Sell and Trade Days and the 2012 Christmas Parade.
Through the wise use of our budget, we are pleased to continue our service to Columbia-Adair County. It is through the support of our members that allows us to keep the Chamber doors open and improve our current services while looking to implement new things for the community.
The 2013 Columbia-Adair County Chamber of Commerce membership drive is currently underway. This is a 100% tax deductible investment that has many rewards. Some of the ways you benefit with a membership in your Chamber include:
United Citizens Bank of Southern Kentucky

We take great pride in the fact we are "Home Owned & Home Grown". United Citizens Bank serves individuals and businesses with a full range of banking products and services including Checking and Savings accounts, Certificates of Deposits and a wide variety of Loan products including 30 year fixed rate loans which are serviced by our in-house staff.

WELCOME TO COLUMBIA, DREW MITCHELL
The Columbia-Adair County Chamber of Commerce welcomes Drew Mitchell, the new Manager of Wal-Mart to our community and looks forward to his participation in the Chamber. Manager Mitchell comes to us with much Wal-Mart experience having served as Manager for the Bardstown and Lebanon stores.
A special "Thank You" to Wal-Mart and Manager Mitchell for donating a Bunn-O-Matic coffee maker to the kitchen/meeting room of the lower level of the Chamber building...an item that was badly needed. The beautiful part of this donation was the fact that the Chamber did not have to ask for it. We shall forever be grateful to Wal-Mart and Manager Mitchell for this wonderful gift!
