The chamber is a member-run organization. It receives no public, state or area funds. The Jamestown Area Chamber of Commerce currently has more than 350 businesses in its membership.
Currently, there are five major committees in the chamber. The Ambassadors Committee visits new and local businesses for ribbon cuttings, new locations, etc. The Ag Committee is busy with a couple of major dinner projects, the fall Farmers Appreciation Dinner and the spring ag luncheon. The Beautification Committee has undertaken the Yard of the Week program this year and has also been instrumental in hanging flower baskets that grace the downtown area. The After Five Committee works with the interests of younger members of the community as well as with the Local and Regional Issues Committee, which helps work elections and helps get information out about referendums and other voting concerns, and they help with some of the meetings during the legislative session where legislators have an opportunity to share what has gone on during the period of time they were in the Legislature.
Sayler works full time for KSJB and KSJZ radio stations. He is a senior account manager and is also a partner in the station. He answered questions from Rotary members.
The Sept. 14 business meeting was presided over by Rick Pfeifer. Harvey Huber gave the invocation, Larry Hoffman and Bev Kennison led the group in patriotic songs in remembrance of Sept. 11. Gary Riffe collected numerous “Happy Dollars” for Rotary projects.
Moe Brown from Baltimore, Md., was a guest of Riffe. He is a past Rotary member and was president of his club in 1988. Joan Morris, the chief financial officer at Agricover, was also a guest at the meeting.
Gail Martin reminded members of the Rose project and encouraged them to continue to sell tickets and to get their count to her no later than today. An announcement was made to check e-mail messages for information regarding the final week for the Rotary group to clean Mill Hill.
The program for the next meeting is in Jason Braun’s hands. He will also give the invocation. Music leader will be Quincy Backen and Huber is sergeant at arms.
