Jason Mehl led the Pledge of Allegiance and Franky Todd gave the prayer. Welcome was extended to all members pres- ent and to Shawn Coverdall of Fairground Chevrolet. Mark Parkinson, Deputy District Office Director at Senator Christopher Bond's office, was also introduced. Treasurer Steve Paulus gave the financial report. Norma Bretz read the minutes of the March meeting. Patti Campbell reported for the Chamber's Awards Banquet that was held the end of April. The Silent Auction had 75 items and everyone was very generous at signing the auction sheets. Table decorations were taken to Cuba Manor after the banquet and everyone enjoyed  them. The small coke bottle brought back many memories. It was our best banquet yet. Patti has said that she will help plan the banquet again next year. Hope we have the ice sculp- ture on the serving table again, it was really special. Many people help with lots of nice things for the event. Jason Mehl reported that the membership discount card was nearly fully subscribed. If you want your business to be on the card offer- ing a discount to members you have to hurry and get it to Jason or Jeff Bouse. Ribbon cuttings took place at M&M Flooring, Ecentrix Hair Salon and Glenn's Overhead Door during the last month. Robert Wheeler, Franky Todd and Ken Goodrich have had a meeting for this year's Christmas Lighted Display. Start looking now for ideas to put in your display. Members of the chamber are needed to talk about what their business was doing. The Chamber will be having this type of meeting every so often. It gives members time to tell what's new at their places of business. Kim Robinson reported that school will be out soon and summer school will be starting very shortly. Plans for next year are being worked on. Norm DeLeo attended a conference and was informed that the fast food business was the fastest growing type of business at this time. He reported for his wife that the Crawford Historical Society had four tours go through the museum. Barbara Turner, postmaster, reminded mem- bers that the Lewis and Clark commemorative postage stamp are on sale. Bob Bretz and Patti Campbell reported that they had visited some of the Lewis and Clark events in St. Charles. It was well attended and there was much to see, hear and do. This type of event is a real tourism event for the state. Mark Parkinson from Senator Bond's office updated us on the transportation bill that will increase construction jobs and that it is a $1.5 billion item. Mark answered questioned from members. President Pegge Martin announced that in July we will be having our first anniversary at the visitor center. After the July meeting mem- bers will be encouraged to visit the center and enjoy punch and cookies. What's happening at the Visitor Center: Becky Murdock is now one of the employees at the center. Becky will have no problem giving information about our community to guests in the center. The count for the Visitor Center at this time is: calls received 2,187, cars/people 6,825, 15 people from different countries have visited and 106 people from different cities in Missouri. The volunteers for this past month have been Bob Bretz, Nan Coffman, Carol Ottatinger, Bette Price, Lynda Weingart, Evelyn Eyerman, and Becky Haferkamp. We could not do it without them. The center is open seven days a week. Monday through Saturday 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sun 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you are a member of the chamber you need to make sure that your business card or other information about your business is in the center. It is time to pay this year's dues. We have advertising spaces that you can rent and Kathy Bick is in the center on Monday mornings and Tuesday afternoons, if you wish to talk with her about a space. The June meeting will be held at Country Kitchen at noon on Monday June 21. Our guests will be Crawford County Fair Queen Candidates.
