Around the Town By Emma Drissen As we approach another month, we see more and more activities filling our calendar. We hope you will mark some of the events that will be here before we know it! The Chamber's annual banquet will be Thursday, April 6, in the Rushmore Rooms at the Coyote Student Center. This will be a joint banquet with the Vermillion Development Company. More details will be available as we confirm preparations.
Saturday, Feb. 26 is the American Cancer Society's "Relay for Life" at the DakotaDome from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information on how to get involved call 624-2437 or 624-9373. This event is sponsored by the Clay County Cancer Society.
On Monday, March 6, the Austin-Whittemore House will host a Business After Hours from 5 to 7 p.m. We cannot say enough about the importance of attending all Business After Hours to show support to fellow members. This is a great way to meet and network with one another.
Our membership drive continues and we remind everyone to renew membership for 2000. Thank you to all who have sent in their renewals and to those who have joined for the first time. Please keep in mind that we will be publishing our Chamber Directory toward the end of March and only paid members will be included. It is exciting to see the growth and strength of the Chamber.
