How does it feel to be the new Chamber President/CEO? It’s really an amazing feeling to be back in Jefferson City again! It’s especially great to reconnect with old friends and meet new and emerging business leaders as well. Half of the Chamber staff are great people I actually hired over 20 years ago, which helps with my transition. The other half of the staff are also very dedicated to their work. What is your professional background? I started out wanting to be a journalist and worked for a small daily in my hometown in Shenandoah, Iowa during high school and college. My first chamber job was in Shenandoah at the tender age of 21 and chamber work has been my career of choice ever since. I think what has kept me enjoying this field for so long has been the opportunity to work with the best and brightest leaders from both the private and public sectors. Please share a little bit about yourself: I grew up in Iowa and graduated from Northwest Missouri State University. I have four children and the two youngest lived with us during COVID. Those two boys, Sam and Ethan, get their entrepreneurial spirit from my wife Dana, whose family ran Pizza Kwik in Jefferson City for 50 years. The boys and Dana recently reopened Pizza Kwik as a food trailer and have been doing a lot of business here in Jefferson City, which was another reason why I sought the Chamber job here. What do you see as the primary focus for the Chamber? Our chair Jeff Davidson, in a recent column, talked about a renewed focus on the Chamber’s mission: To promote economic vitality and strength in the area and be a leading public policy advocate for business; to provide services to our members; and partner in activities that improve the economy and quality of life. What other top priorities do you see for the Chamber? First and foremost, the Chamber’s here to serve our members, which comes down to identifying and addressing their needs. If we do that well, then the goal of growing Chamber membership will come naturally. I also am a big believer in inclusion, which means the Chamber should be a welcoming place for business and community leaders from all backgrounds and walks of life. What is your message to Chamber members? I always ask Chamber members to get engaged in this organization and to share their passion about the Chamber and Jefferson City with others. Tell your customers, vendors and business associations why you believe in the Chamber and invite them to be a part of this movement. That’s the most powerful way to get the story out about this great organization and community!

ON NEW OUTPATIENT SURGERY CENTER ON WEST EDGEWOOD Photos provided by Jefferson City Medical Group March 16, 2021 was a historic day for healthcare in Jefferson City. Community leaders joined Jefferson City Medical Group physicians and staff to celebrate the official groundbreaking of the new JCMG Outpatient Surgery Center. The new surgery center will be a standalone facility on a six-acre plot of land at the junction of West Edgewood Boulevard and Harper’s Ferry Road. Established in 1993, Jefferson City Medical Group (JCMG) has quickly grown to become one of Missouri’s largest independent multi-specialty groups and one of Jefferson City’s largest employers. JCMG employs more than 115 healthcare providers in 30 medical and surgical specialties, serving more than 70,000 people each year. Physician leaders at JCMG have been considering a larger, more modern surgery center for years. The demand is quickly rising for outpatient surgery across the country as procedures are being redirected to the outpatient environment, which offers high-quality services at a lower cost than a hospital. The new outpatient surgery center will be easily accessible, convenient, and offer a high-quality, streamlined experience for patients and their families. JCMG’s current Outpatient Surgery Center, located on the lower level of its main campus on Stadium Blvd., opened in 1998 and has served the Mid-Missouri community for over 20

years. As healthcare has shifted and outpatient needs grew, JCMG physicians determined the current space did not offer enough room for expansion and began planning to build a new facility. JCMG’s new surgery center be a onelevel, 28,000 square foot standalone facility with ample parking, an expanded waiting area, state-of-the-art surgical space, and covered entries and exits for patients and staff. The center will also include two 23-hour overnight suites.

ABOVE: JCMG physicians and staff at the groundbreaking ceremony in March 2021. Procedures and surgical services offered will include gastroenterology, orthopedic surgery, foot and ankle surgery, hand surgery, gynecological surgery, ENT surgeries, pain management procedures, plastic and reconstructive surgery, general surgery, and more. This expansion benefits the MidMissouri economy as well. Over 88 percent of the expansion work was awarded to mid-Missouri companies,

boosting local infrastructure. Upon completion, JCMG estimates that the expansion of their outpatient surgery program will add approximately 15-20 area skilled jobs, including 3-5 physicians, with an estimated $3 million increase in annual gross wages. The facility represents one of the first major developments on West Edgewood, an area the City hopes to see grow. This project could help spur additional development in the future, which could bring more resources to the Jefferson City community. At the groundbreaking ceremony on March 16, Jeffrey Patrick, M.D. (JCMG Board President) and George Carr, M.D. (JCMG Board Vice President), donned keepsake hard hats and posed with traditional golden shovels along with several other JCMG physicians and staff. For Dr. Patrick and Dr. Carr, the ceremony was a trip down memory lane. Both were also present at the original groundbreaking for the main JCMG campus in 1998. JCMG will repurpose the existing surgery center space at the Stadium Boulevard campus after the new facility is built. The group is currently exploring options and reviewing community needs.

OUTPATIENT SURGERY CENTER Photos provided by Capital Region Medical Center Capital Region Medical Center continues to advance healthcare delivery in the communities it serves. In April of 2021, CRMC began construction on a 24,000 square foot, $20 million Outpatient Surgery Center located on the hospital campus. Located on the ground level of the Capital Region Physician’s office building, the new outpatient surgery center will house four operating rooms, two endoscopic procedure rooms, and space to accommodate for future growth. All pre- and post-procedure rooms will be private and thoughtfully designed with a patient-centered approach. Patients receiving care in the new facility will recover in the comfort of their own private room and the entire space will be carefully curated to enhance the patient experience for the duration of care. Postoperative patient privacy will further be enhanced with a separate comfort area and exit for those being discharged. Physicians and staff will enjoy large surgery and procedure rooms, strategically designed to optimize safety and efficiency. Ergonomic workstations will enhance the comfort and safety 12


for staff and employees. The entire center has been designed to maximize efficiency. On-site sterile processing, for example, will help expedite the delivery of supplies to the operating suites. The decision to expand services in an outpatient setting is part of CRMC’s commitment to continued innovation allowing more surgeries and procedures to be conducted on an outpatient basis, thereby allowing patients to recover in the comfort of their own surroundings. With the growth in surgical volumes, especially those done on an outpatient basis, the local demand for procedures in an outpatient setting is growing. CRMC’s goal is to be able to provide the right care, at the right time, in the right place for our patients and the community. Having the surgery center located adjacent to the hospital offers a huge advantage not only for patients but for collaborating physicians as well. No surgery or procedure is without risk and such close proximity to hospital services provides additional peace of mind. The additional space will also help CRMC continue to recruit physicians to its vast

provider network. A sixth general surgeon is expected to join the organization later in 2021. With added physicians and more volume, CRMC expects the addition of new, well-paying jobs to the community. CRMC anticipates opening the new surgery center in summer 2022.

JEFFERSON CITY MEMORIAL AIRPORT TAKES FLIGHT The Jefferson City Memorial Airport has served the community and region since its construction in 1948. Interest in a hard surface airport began prior to WWII, as the first recognized airport was located near the current site of the Missouri Department of Conservation and Unilever in 1927-1929. Shortly after this site was chosen it was determined to be unsatisfactory for various reasons, so a separate location was identified on the north side of the river where the Turkey Creek Golf Center is currently located. Federal funding coupled with a bond issued by the City of Jefferson lead to the construction of the JC Memorial Airport which was located just to the east of Turkey Creek area. The total cost of the airport, including one paved runway and two grass runways, totaled $310,000.

The old terminal, constructed in 1966, had served our community for fifty-six years but the aging facility had succumbed to continual flooding and general aging issues. Once fully operational, the new administrative building will offer a much-needed expanded footprint with the advantage of a second floor, which will house a new restaurant named, The Landing Zone. The restaurant will offer a full breakfast and lunch menu. In addition, the terminal will house administrative personnel as well as an attached hangar.

Over the years, the airport has experienced multiple shutdowns as flood waters enveloped not only the runways but completely shut down all operations. The airport’s former administrative building’s "last gasp for air" occurred in 2019, as the Missouri River crested at 33.5 feet. After the flood waters retreated, it was determined the cost to rebuild would be more than 50 percent of the building’s pre-flood value. It was then determined the building would need to be demolished.

One of the greatest misnomers regarding the Jefferson City Memorial Airport is its perception of being a "sleepy little airport across the river." In reality, it’s the sixth busiest airport out of 127 public use airports in Missouri with an average of 35,000 flights per year. Common daily activities consist of corporate flying, flight training, military exercises, air cargo, and recreational flying. The airfield is shared with the Missouri National Guard, including the Special Troops Battalion-Joint Force Headquarters, © Janelle Harris along with the Air National Guard. The overall economic impact to the area is estimated to be over $22.0 million annual (based on 2012 study by MoDOT) and over 100 full-time employees, dispersed across more than a dozen entities.

The misfortune that led to the administrative building’s demolition forced the City of Jefferson to act swiftly, and they did by entering into a development agreement with RHK Airport Properties to design and construct a new terminal facility. The agreement permits RHK Airport Properties to design and build a new facility, on the same site location, which will house an airport hangar, restaurant, and administrative offices. "As sad as it was to see the terminal building demolished, this is also an opportunity to do a lot more with that space and is a great step forward for the airport and its customers," said Eric Bowers, Airport Manager.



"We are excited to have a restaurant again. A good restaurant will draw in both recreational flyers and folks from the community," stated Bowers.

"We see a lot of business jet traffic here. This airport is often the first impression for people flying to conduct business in the mid-Missouri area," said Bowers. "There are a lot of exciting things happening at the airport right now. We are growing and expanding steadily. I am confident that in the next few years we will see a significant increase in our operation numbers, based aircraft, and economic impact."




BREWING COMPANY by Mike Murphy, originally printed in Jefferson City BUZ, Volume 3, Issue 5

The Cowley family has owned and operated a magazine and book wholesale business, headquartered in Jefferson City, since 1957. At its peak, it had 400 employees in nine states staffing 15 distribution sites and running 225 delivery trucks. The elder Cowley brothers, John, Jerry and Jeff, sold that business to publiclytraded American News Company in late 2019. The brothers continue to operate seven bookstores in Missouri, including Downtown Book & Toy in Jefferson City. "We knew there wouldn’t be a long-term place for us after the sale," said Mark Crowley, John’s son. "We decided we’d rather work for ourselves and start our own family business."

To create a venue for the brewery, they renovated a portion of the company’s warehouse on Heisinger Road, just off Missouri Blvd. in the middle of town. Situated near the Jefferson City greenway trail, with a large parking lot and surrounding greenspace, the location seems ideal for the family-oriented and open-air environment the Crowley’s are trying to create. Jared Crowley, Jeff’s son, also enlisted the help of his fatherin-law, Kris Cook, to build the bar that is the centerpiece of the tap room. Kris also helped install the cooler, painted the entire brewery, and was instrumental throughout construction. The tap room has 12 beers on tap. There is a can sealer that allows for fresh-canned beers to go, as well as traditional 64-ounce growlers. The owners have arranged with local food trucks to be on site regularly.

First-cousins Mark and Jared Cowley got to know each other even better sharing an office at the family business in Jefferson City. They’d realized for some time that sooner-or-later they would have to find new jobs. After many hours of conversation and planning, they decided take Jared’s love and talent for brewing beer and combine it with Mark’s business experience and acumen. The result is Last Flight Brewing Company which opened recently in Jefferson City.

Mark and Jared Cowley both graduated from Helias, a couple years apart, and headed off to college - Mark to the University of Notre Dame, and Jared to Truman State. After graduating, Mark spent some time working in Chicago and travelling; Jared in Kansas City. Ultimately, both married, started families, and found themselves working together at the family business back in Jefferson City.





HAPPY 200 ! TH

by Carrie Tergin, Mayor, Jefferson City

How would you celebrate a 200th birthday? You would bring a gift, and it would certainly be a big one! So, let’s get this party started! It’s a year of fun and celebration! Plan your 200th party by visiting and check out the endorsed projects from around the state. The BIGGEST endorsed project is right here in #JCMO: The Bicentennial Bridge project! This gift to the city and the state will commemorate 200 years and will be a place to connect the past to the present at the Capitol leading to the Missouri riverfront. Think of how the Mighty Mo has been part of our history and how our city ended up on the river. Think of the role the river played in transportation, recreation and more! Where would our community be without the vision of our leaders, like B.J. DeLong and the Adrian family, years ago? Their vision - a walkway bridge from the Capitol, over the railroad tracks, to a riverfront park – is becoming reality. We were a river city without river access from the Capitol side, but that is going to change! The bridge will be dedicated in August 2021, along with the Gold Star Families Monument which will be at the entrance of the bridge. The bridge is on track (actually, OVER the tracks) and scheduled to be completed Fall 2021.

LEFT: Gov. Mike Parson and Clint Schelbitzki, Union Pacific Assistant Vice President of Public Affairs, unveil new concept art for a designed panel of the Bicentennial Bridge.



The Bicentennial Bridge is a pedestrian/bike bridge from the Missouri State Capitol to the Missouri riverfront. There is currently no easy access to the river from the Capitol side, so this will open up the beautiful natural habitat and scenery along the Missouri River for all visitors. The gently sloping, ADA accessible bridge will lead to a riverfront park on "Adrian’s Island." Upon crossing the bridge, guests are greeted with an open landing on the island. In this area and along the bridge, there will be interactive displays giving guests the opportunity to learn more about Adrian’s Island, along with panels on the bridge that tell the story of Missouri’s history. On the island itself, there will be nature trails and benches for the public to enjoy. The riverfront park will also have a life-size chess board and remnants from the Capitol remodeling, including columns that were once at the top of the State Capitol building. The island is around 30 acres and almost a mile long. Visit the Bicentennial Bridge website ( for a 3D walkthru video of what the bridge will look like! The overall fundraising goal is around $4.5 million, with over $4.2 million already raised. What a gift to the State’s 200th Birthday, the Missouri Bicentennial. Imagine prom, homecoming and wedding pictures, captured along the bridge with the stunning view of the Capitol from an entirely new perspective. The new experience will provide an opportunity to discover native plants and the true beauty of the river. Envision walking or biking to a park on the riverbank, enjoying the tranquil surroundings with the lull of the water flowing and of the trains moving along the tracks. This will be a place to bring family, friends, and out-of-town visitors of all ages and abilities. The time has come to commemorate our state, the Capitol and the beautiful Missouri River and the Bicentennial Bridge is the perfect place to for a 200th birthday celebration!

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY LAW ENFORCEMENT TRAINING ACADEMY ANSWERS THE NEED by Misty T. Nunn, Lincoln University; Photos provided by Lincoln University The underlying purpose of colleges and universities is to prepare tomorrow’s workforce. Today, one of the greatest teaching tools and sought-after knowledge base lies in diversity. As the first and only police academy on an Historically Black College and University (HBCU) campus, the Lincoln University Law Enforcement Training Academy aims to answer an increasing need within the criminal justice system.

Data USA reports 67% of the nation’s police officers are white and 12.4% are Black. Hill says agencies have tried to recruit minority officers for years, but with more eyes on police brutality and deaths like Michael Brown and George Floyd, it is imperative to prepare officers that are more reflective of the communities they are committed to protect and serve.

"We want to increase the number of practical hours so that officers are learning how to react in a volatile situation. I truly believe that has a lot to do with the use of force incidents we are seeing."

Academy Director Gary Hill, who serves as Chief of the Lincoln University Police Department, worked to establish the academy at Lincoln University because the 155-year-old institution provides exactly what today’s law enforcement needs.

"I was one of two AfricanAmericans in my police academy class 25 years ago," says Hill. "With our central location and student population, minority recruits will have easy access to our academy. We can begin the work right here in Missouri to bring more diversity to departments and agencies around the country."



program will focus on basic law enforcement coursework, such as state statutes, firearms training, de-escalation protocol and crisis intervention. Unique to the program is the up to 90 hours the future officers will focus on learning about child abuse, domestic violence, welfare and fraud. Hill says this additional training will help officers are create better outcomes when they are on a call.

Steenbergen agrees the added coursework will create better trained officers.

Joe Steenbergen, Academic Director of the Academy and Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice at Lincoln University, hosted the academy’s first job fair in March and says agencies were already interested in the recruits well before the academy opened. Steenbergen says just 1% of last year’s graduates from the state’s 19 other academies were Black. The academy enrolled its first class in January 2021. The 22-week, 700-hour

"I don’t know any other academy that is more focused on community policing. We want community police who can build and repair trust." The Lincoln University Law Enforcement Training Academy sessions begin in January and August and can enroll up to 25 students per session. The broad curriculum for the Class A POST-certified academy also includes 15 upper-level college credits. For more information on enrollment, visit

Mid America Bank has seen tremendous growth in its 107 year history in Central Missouri. Originally chartered as The People’s Bank of St. Thomas in 1914, the bank’s name was changed to Mid America Bank in 1983 to better reflect its expansion into a new market with the opening of a second branch location in Linn, MO. Since that time, Mid America Bank has expanded with an additional four branch locations in Wardsville, Holts Summit, Belle, and their most recent branch addition located at the corner of West Stadium Boulevard and West Edgewood Drive in Jefferson City.

Over the years, Mid America Bank has served the Jefferson City market without a physical location within the city limits of Jefferson City. This all changed in 2020, as Mid America Bank opened a new branch office at one of the community’s busiest intersections, 1200 West Stadium Boulevard and West Edgewood Drive. The full-service branch offers a universal banking model with drive-thru teller windows, ATM, night depository and staffed with personal bankers and lenders to assist customers. As the Central Missouri area continues to expand its economic growth, it in turn creates opportunities for financial institutions to increase their market share. Mid America Bank continues to be conscious of the expanding rural markets as demonstrated by the opening of branch locations within 20


smaller populated communities. After years of planning, Jefferson City became home to a new branch location, with a banking lobby and administration offices on the first floor coupled with corporate offices on the second floor. The sixth branch will allow Mid America Bank to provide expanded customer service and will house fifteen staff members, in addition to their eighty existing employees.

"We are extremely excited to have a branch location in Jefferson City," said Mark Luebbert, President of Mid America Bank. "Although we have been serving the Jefferson City market for many years, we wanted a stronger presence within the community and our new location will now offer that to our existing and future customers." Mid America Bank’s recent investment is one of many examples of economic growth and sustainability being exhibited by the greater business community. The Jefferson City Area Chamber of Commerce greatly appreciates Mid America Bank’s continued service and financial commitment to the greater Jefferson City community.

BY MARRIOTT RISES ABOVE Photos provided by Courtyard by Marriott

One the most recognized and visible landmarks in Jefferson City, aside from our great state capitol building, for many decades was the former St. Mary’s Hospital as it perched above our community. In early December of 2020, Courtyard by Marriott opened the doors to a new 121 room, 4-story hotel with a bistro, bar, indoor pool, fitness center and meeting space. One the most intriguing features of the hotel’s many amenities is the outdoor patio which offers spectacular views of the downtown and Missouri State Capitol.



What makes the new hotel most unique is the reclaimed stone from original four-story hospital which was refurbished and used to replicate the exterior of the former St. Mary’s Hospital. Due to the multiple additions over the years, the original hospital building did not adhere to the standards under the National Registry of Historic Places. In order to maintain some of its history, the property owners (Farmers Holding Company) salvaged the stone and made arrangements to incorporate the refurbished stone on the northern and east portion for the hotel.


"We are excited to bring the Courtyard by Marriott brand and reputation to Jefferson City," said Ken Ordyk, General Manager for the Courtyard by Marriott. "We could not be more pleased with the look and location of our newest offering."

EV CHARGING STATIONS ATTRACT CUSTOMERS Two Jefferson City businesses are now popular stops for electric vehicle (EV) drivers. Customers can recharge their vehicle while they get a bite to eat at Culver’s or stay at the Courtyard Marriott. "We’re excited to offer on-site EV charging as another amenity for our guests who stay with us, as well as those who are passing through town," said Ken Ordyk, General Manager, Courtyard Marriot. "Jefferson City offers many historic sites, local restaurants and businesses that families can explore, and we hope the added benefit of convenient EV charging will attract even more travelers to our region." The Marriott charging stations are not just for overnight guests. Sales Director Michele Braun added, "We have Starbucks here, so they can have a cup of coffee while their cars are charging." The charging station at the Marriott will be able to charge up to four cars simultaneously. Drivers will pay Marriott per kilowatt-hour of electricity used. Courtyard by Marriott partnered with Ameren Missouri to install a DC fast-charging station at the Marriott parking garage on Bolivar Street, enabling travelers to recharge their vehicle in as little as 30 to 45 minutes.

Through the Charge Ahead program, Ameren Missouri is offering incentives for local businesses to own and operate additional EV charging stations at their locations, ultimately installing 1,000 EV charging stations at 350 locations across the state.



As part of its commitment to reach netzero carbon emissions, Ameren Missouri also plans to electrify its own vehicle fleet, with a goal that 100% of new light-duty vehicle purchases by 2030 will be electric. In addition, 35% of Ameren Missouri’s overall vehicle fleet, including light-duty, medium-duty, heavy-duty, forklifts and ATV/UTVs, will be electrified by 2030. Culver’s has three charging stations in its parking lot offered 24/7, free of charge. Allen and Gretchen Walz and Kendall Walz Newton, the owners and operators of Culver’s, installed two Telsa destination chargers and one Jucebox charger at their restaurant. Kendall Newton said "We're the only ones in the community that have Tesla chargers, and we also have another generic charger that any car can charge on." Allen Walz drives a Tesla. He says that company can track the vehicle and can tell the driver how much power is left in the car and where to stop to reload. "Depending on the heat, the air conditioning, how fast you go... it uses more power," Walz said. "The car will tell you where to stop and how long to stop. So, we hope to be one of those stops," Newton said. Electric vehicles produce no emissions and are better for the environment than gas-powered vehicles. The automotive industry says there are about 1.5 million electric cars on America's roads right now. They expect that number to reach almost 19 million within 10 years.

TRANSFORMING RECREATION INTO DESTINATION by Amy Schroeder, Community Relations Manager, JC Parks Have you ever travelled for a sports tournament as a parent, coach, or athlete? No doubt you recall the HOURS you spent in the gym or ball field either playing or cheering on your team from the stands. Perhaps you have equally fond memories of celebrating a big win together at a favorite restaurant or unwinding with the other parents in the hotel lounge after a log day at the sports venue.

What does this meaning for our local economy? In the first three months of 2021, The Linc hosted six tournaments. According to calculations provided by Jefferson City Convention and Visitors Bureau, the estimated economic impact was $227,982. That figure is predicted to increase post-pandemic. But Jefferson City is so much more than sports. Its big city amenities and small town hospitality sets it up as an ideal destination. Take a look at the three most recent JC Parks capital projects that further enhance this transformation.

Attending sports events is about more than the game itself. Your experience includes restaurants, shops, hotels, and other amenities the host city has to offer. Recognizing the significant benefit for its residents and visitors, JC Parks has spent recent years investing in sport facility infrastructure. The Linc wellness

and recreation center opened in 2017, providing four regulation basketball courts. In 2020, JC Parks opened 63 Diamonds Sports Complex, a four-field venue fit for baseball and softball.

JC Parks completed its first master plan in 2018. When prioritizing master plan improvements, staff and commission members took into consideration the current quality of a park and how much impact the improvement would have on the community. Community Park easily jumped to the head of the line. The park had outdated play equipment and no restrooms. As far as impact, the area around Community Park has one of the most dense residential populations of any existing park in Jefferson City. It is also situated in the city’s urban core, putting it in close proximity to the Capitol and the downtown district.

The outcome? A destination park that brings in visitors from all over. From the giant ropes tower and slide, the zip lines, public art, and the splash pad, Community Park is a playground unlike any other in central Missouri. On any given weekend, vehicles fill the parking lot and dozens of visitors ranging from toddlers to seniors play together. While they come to Jefferson City for the park, they extend their stay by grabbing a bite to eat before heading home. BRIDGEJC.COM

OPENS AT RIVERSIDE PARK by Mike Murphy, originally printed in Jefferson City BUZ, Volume 3, Issue 4 The newly renovated amphitheater at the city’s Ellis-Porter Riverside Park will open with a twang next month. Touring country music artists Clay Walker and Tracy Lawrence performed at the inaugural event on May 22, 2021. The new venue is part of $2.8 million in improvements at the park that include a new modern stage, restrooms, about 500 fixed seats, and lawn seating for an additional 2,500. The city is investing $7.5 million in its parks, the result of an initiative that began in 2016 with development of a master plan. The 242-page document inventoried and analyzed each of the city’s 18 parks and set forth a development plan for the next 1020 years. "We talked to a lot of people, and what kept coming up over and over again, was people wanted an outdoor venue like this," said city parks Director, Todd Spaulding. "So, it went to the top of the list." Municipal bonds were sold to finance the improvements and are scheduled to be paid off over the next 20 years. Debt service for the new bonds will be about $500,000 annually. In 2020, the parks operated on about $5.6 in annual revenue. About half comes from a 0.5% allotment of the city’s 2.0% sales tax. The other half comes from user and service fees it obtains from the ice arena, golf courses, pools, rentals and recreational programs. Spaulding said the city plans to break even financially on the new amphitheater. It has hired VenuWorks of Ames, IA, to manage the venue for $60,000 annually and five percent of the revenues. VenuWorks named Lynn Cannon the Executive Director of the Riverside Park Amphitheater and she recently relocated to Jefferson City from the Chicago area. Her mission is to bring great events to the communities we serve so everyone can benefit and enjoy them," she recently told a group of chamber of commerce members. 30


Cannon, who has made a career in the venue management business, told the group that her focus is "getting this thing off the ground." She shared that they are working on naming rights, food truck sponsors, beverage sponsors, beer sponsors, caterers, signage, and event sponsors. The amphitheater will bring new seasonal jobs to the community as well. Positions include the event services, which are ushers, ticket-takers, security and parking help; stagehands and riggers; bartenders and beer servers; and personnel for setup, teardown and housekeeping. The event season is April through early November. There are hopes for six major events this year, with 12-15 per year, in future years. Other community events will be welcome. Already, Kids Fest is scheduled for June and Battle of the Brews in July. The amphitheater will host Stars Under the Stars movie nights. "We would book every single day if we can," Cannon said. As of early April, more than 2,000 tickets had been sold for the opening night, ranging from $42-$59. Cannon said about 75% of the sales are from the Jefferson City and Columbia areas. Sales have also been strong from elsewhere in Missouri, notably from Springfield and Hannibal. There have been tickets purchased from residents of New York and Los Angeles. "Our goal is to get people through the gates in an even flow. We’ll open the gates 90 minutes before the opening act, at 6 p.m. A majority of the seats are grass so most will come early to get their blanket down and stake out their seats. For the most part that’s our schedule," she said. For security, she said the industry standard is one security officer for every 250 people. "We’ll have 10-12 security officers roaming," she said. Noise complaints from the surrounding neighborhood are also a possibility. "The amphitheater faces the river, not the neighborhood, and also sits in a valley. Hopefully, the sound is contained within the hills," she said.

Riverside Park was acquired by the city in 1949 and renamed in 1961 in memory of Arthur W. Ellis, a former mayor, and Ben C. Porter, a former Director of Parks and Recreation. The 60-acre park holds a swimming pool, playground, basketball court and four triple-walled handball/racquetball courts. Also found there is the Optimist Sports Complex, where youth baseball and softball games are held, as well as youth flag football games. The outdoor pavilion at Ellis-Porter Riverside Park adjacent to the Missouri River Overlook has a capacity of 280 people, with two large barbecue grills, restrooms and a serving kitchen. There are 13 covered picnic units placed throughout the park for family or small group gatherings. The amphitheater is sure to bring our community together for decades to come. This Jefferson City gathering place is ideal for both local talent and world class musicians and artists. What better year than 2021 to deliver the outdoor venue to the community when we are so ready to get out and enjoy good music and great fun with friends and family. What a breath of fresh air!

by Rob Crouse, Founder and Board Member, Capital City Productions; Photos provided by Capital City Productions When local theatre director and actor Rob Crouse visited his friend Tom Simon, co-owner of the Jefferson City Ramada Inn, he had no money and a big dream—presenting a dinner theatre production. Crouse had no idea that 30 years later, his dream would have been embraced by thousands of volunteers and tens of thousands of audience members in one of only three yearround dinner theatre experiences in the state of Missouri. In January 1991 the newly named not-for-profit theatre company Capital City Players began performing one to two Broadway musicals every year in the banquet room of the Ramada Inn. These labor intensive performances required setting up a stage, lights, and sound a week before every production opened along with the weeks of rehearsals the shows required. During the middle of these Ramada years, when the group performing Shakespeare in the Park disbanded, CCP assumed this role in partnership with Jefferson City Parks and Recreation, presenting these summer stage productions for the next seven years. Fast-forward to the spring of 2006, after an evening of dinner and a conversation with the owner of Tonanzio’s Restaurant in nearby Guthrie, Missouri, Crouse came up with the idea of replicating a summer stock experience for a small group of CCP actors and technicians. With the help of CCP family members Branden and Stephanie Bise, Tom and Michelle Baker, and Kip Neblett, Crouse was able to convert the restaurant into a dinner theatre environment and bring in a small group of additional CCP actors to do two summer theatre productions. The success of that venture convinced Crouse that CCP had developed a large enough following to produce their own shows. After much searching, Crouse discovered the empty and neglected Shikles Auditorium as the perfect new home for CCP, and Bill Lockwood, Director of Jefferson City Parks and Recreation, the organization that was subleasing the space, agreed to a rental.

However, raising the money to renovate the space and buy the equipment for the dinner theatre was not as easy as Crouse had hoped. When only Central Bank and Fab Building Center stepped up as major donors, Crouse’s late wife, Chris, agreed to let him take a $40,000 second mortgage on their house to open the theatre. The new CCP dinner theatre opened with the daring Broadway hit, "The Full Monty," in January 2007. In spite of several ice storm cancellations, the show was highly successful, and the CCP dinner theatre experience of presenting Broadway musicals and plays to Central Missouri year-round took off. Gradually, the work of holding a full time job and running a year-round dinner theatre took its toll on Crouse’s health. Fortunately, in July 2016, Nate Grey, who had moved back to Jefferson City and become involved with CCP; Luann Madsen, one of the original CCP family members; and a small group of the CCP family, came to the rescue and agreed to assume the financial and administrative responsibilities of running the theatre so Crouse could have the major back surgery and knee replacements he so desperately needed. Under the visionary leadership of Nate Grey, CCP greatly expanded its mission, adding children’s theatre camps, professional artist performances, acting and technical workshops, a scholarship program, partnership productions with the local Boys and Girls Club and Blair Oaks High School, and a new Pay It Forward program, which allows CCP to raise money for another worthy not-for-profit organization at each production. The much-enhanced (or revitalized?) new mission demanded a new name. Capital City Players became Capital City Productions. But this was far from the last big bumps in the road for CCP. During the summer of 2018, the Jefferson City Housing Authority (who owned of Shikles Auditorium) unexpectedly announced their intention to sell the space. In spite of CCP’s repeated attempts to reach a cooperate agreement, the building was sold, and CCP was given a year to find a new home. After looking at the limited spaces available that might work for most of the next year, CCP was blessed to finally find a much larger and more exciting theatre space at 719 Wicker Lane and entered into long-term agreement with the owners Butzer, Inc. With the financial support of major donors, Central Bank, Jefferson Bank, and Hawthorn Bank and other loyal CCP supporters and the hard work of so many others, CCP was able to create a much more grandiose stage and auditorium space. Additionally, they were afforded a larger lobby and rest rooms, a shop for building, dressing rooms, costume room, props room, make up room, tech booth, and office.



Yet the trials and tribulations of CCP were far from over. Just as the new theatre was ready to open with a sold-out production of "The Bodyguard," Covid-19 struck and the theatre had to refund thousands of dollars. But thanks to the implementation of strict health protocols and its large socially distanced space, unlike many theatres, CCP has been able to survive that crisis and finally open to perform productions with limited capacity audiences. On February 18, 2021, in the company of Mayor Carrie Tergin and Jefferson City Chamber of Commerce members, the CCP family officially cut the ribbon on their new theatre complex. This new beautiful space not only offers an exciting home for all of CCP’s productions and activities, but is a wonderful new event space available to rent for wedding receptions, parties, and club and business luncheons and meetings. What started out as one man’s dream has emerged from 30 years of struggles and triumphs to become one of the most valuable entertainment and community assets and tourism attractions of Central Missouri, drawing regular tour bus excursions and audience members from not only all over Missouri but visitors from other states. CCP has been named the "Best Live Theatre" venue in Missouri for the past two years in the Missouri’s Best competition. The hospitality of CCP reaches far. Its "Pay-It-Forward" program has raised more than $80, 000 dollars for over 75 other local charitable organizations in the program’s short existence. Its media posts reach 80,000 people, and 8,000 subscribe to CCP’s email news. To learn more about CCP’s coming events and how to support its activities, individuals can go to Capital City Productions looks forward to 30 more years of living up to its motto—"putting community back into community special moment at a time."





LEADERS AMONG US Janet Wear-Enloe was recognized for providing outstanding volunteer service to the Chamber in 2020 by being named the Chamber’s top volunteer for the year. Janet received the Chairman’s Award from Chamber Chairman, Darren Heckman, at the Chamber Annual Meeting.






Janet is a long-standing Chamber member, serving multiple volunteer roles and more than one term as a Chamber Board member. She has served on over 25 Chamber committees since serving on her first in December 2004.

© Travis Duncan Photography

Most recently, while completing a board term left vacant by a co-worker who had moved out of town, Janet volunteered to serve on the Chamber Transition Committee. And true to form, not only did she serve on the committee, but she was also the chair. In large part because of the diligence of her and her fellow committee members, the Chamber has its organizational restructure in place, a revised budget for 2021 and beyond and has begun the search for a new President/CEO. Jefferson City is sometimes labeled as a tough place for an outsider to find his/her niche and some never embrace this place as their home. While our recipient is originally from Sedalia, MO, by her actions and involvement in our community, Janet has made Jefferson City her home. Congratulations to the Chairman’s Award recipient, Janet Wear-Enloe, SSM Health.

Noelle Parker is the Osage Branch Manager for the Missouri River Regional Library. Noelle played a vital role opening the new library location in Linn, Missouri and has a true passion to serve the residents of Osage County, young and old. Missouri River Regional Library purchased a new building in Linn in 2019 that more than doubled the size of their existing location. Branch Manager, Noelle Parker, worked diligently with the Administration to create and design an inviting, comfortable new space for the Osage County community. She visited other libraries to get ideas and spent an enormous amount of time working on the overall best layout for the building. She even planned a dedicated space for the Friends of the Osage County Library to have an ongoing book sale. Through it all, Noelle kept the best interest of her library patrons in mind when making renovation decisions. Noelle used her graphical expertise to layout plans for the public and staff desks and assisted with every aspect of the renovation from paint choices to carpet. Noelle’s commitment to providing great service to her library patrons really showed during this process. Noelle’s input and vision throughout the renovation project was invaluable, and she did all this building work while handling her regular job duties. The result is a beautifullyrenovated library space the residents of the Osage County community will enjoy for years to come. Congratulations to Noelle Parker, the 2020 Exceptional Employee of the Year. 36


Noelle Parker: I was surprised and overwhelmed! The other nominees have done incredible work and were also deserving. It was an honor just to be in that group and even more so to receive the award. I’ll admit I’m not always comfortable with recognition, so it has been a learning experience for me to try to keep my self-consciousness in check and just accept recognition with gratitude. How did you come to be at Missouri River Regional Library? Noelle: I originally started working for the library many years ago in the Children’s Department when I was much younger and trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. I continued working at the library for a few more years, and then went part time while I finished college. I have a lot of fond memories from this time, gaining valuable workplace experience and professional skills. After spending a couple of years away from the library to explore other career options and work on additional credentials, I was eager to pursue an opportunity that opened up at the Osage Branch. I was hired as branch manager in 2013, and have been here nearly eight years. If you could use 3 words to describe yourself what would they be? Noelle: Creative, Resourceful, Warmhearted What are your hidden talents? Noelle: I’m a singer and try to find bits of time in my busy life to write music and make art.





RIVER CITY FLORIST & GREENHOUSE MIKE MOSCATO & LAUREN MOSCATO Since 1987, Mike Moscato, owner of River City Florist & Greenhouse, has taken pride in staying on top of the latest trends in providing flowers and gifts for daily customers, weddings, funerals and businesses. His daughter, Lauren Moscato, joined the business and cheerfully refers to them as the "dynamic duo." Even during the challenges of COVID-19, the retail shop located at 212 Madison Street is transformed with each season to showcase unique gift-ware items and decor for shopping in-store or online. During the pandemic, they continued to promote the benefits of green plants that could be enjoyed at home. A custom flower cart was added to showcase River City Florist on location at community events and offer beautiful, loose-wrapped flower bouquets at discount prices. River City Florist recently celebrated the completion of a new state of the art greenhouse that replaced the historic greenhouse that suffered hail damage beyond repair. Mike and his daughter, Lauren, and their staff of 15 are known for their generosity and support many community events. To say that Mike, Lauren, and the staff at River City Florist & Greenhouse love what they do is an understatement. Mike Moscato and Lauren Moscato are the most appreciative and hardworking business owners and are more than deserving of the 2020 Small Business Award.

How did it feel when it was announced that you won the Small Business of the Year Award? Lauren Moscato: Well, I cried a little. I was so shocked and grateful; I couldn't believe it to be honest. Tell us your story! How did you come to become the owners of River City Florist & Greenhouse? Lauren: True story, I was 19 and owed my dad a little money.So he made me come to the flower shop, sweep and help the designers out. 11 years later... I'm still here! If you could use 3 words to describe yourself what would they be? Lauren: Funny, innovative, determined What are your hidden talents? Lauren: I've never thought about what my hidden talents are... I'd say people probably don't know that I make the best (in my opinion) table-side Caesar salad dressing.






The Partners In Education Selection Committee decided to award two Outstanding Partnerships this year highlighting exceptional efforts in a challenging pandemic: Jefferson City High School and Hy-Vee Food Store, and Pioneer Trail Elementary and SSM Health-St. Mary's Hospital.

O U T S TA N D I N G PA R T N E R S H I P "The pandemic provided an opportunity to look at our partnership in a unique way to be relevant to classroom needs and show appreciation to each other during these unprecedented times," stated Janet Wear-Enloe, Business Development Director, SSM Health-St. Mary’s Hospital. SSM Health has a very special partnership with Pioneer Trail Elementary School. Principal Scott Salmons reached out in the fall to ask if they could provide some sort of appreciation for our staff who worked with COVID-positive patients. They then decided that every worker at SSM Health is essential to the care of patients, whether through direct patient contact or not, so they provided over 750 handmade ornaments and a little bag of goodies for every employee at SSM Health the week before Christmas.


ABOVE: A class poses with their "future doctor" headbands and backpacks. LEFT: Dr. Olga Brea reads virtually to a Pioneer Trail Elementary class.

Because SSM Health could not go in-person to read to classes, they tried something innovative to accomplish the goal to encourage reading. SSM Health recorded three videos of pediatricians reading books for children in grades K-2 at Pioneer Trail Elementary School. Teachers in each of the classes showed the videos on their SMARTBoards. To enhance the videos, SSM Health gave the school "future doctor" headbands and backpacks for the children. To brighten the day of SSM Health staff, the teachers took photos of the children watching the videos and of them wearing the "future doctor" headbands and backpacks. They posted the photos on Facebook to share their partnership with the community.

A POWERFUL PARTNERSHIP Fifty years ago, Ameren Missouri built an operational center at 1310 Industrial Drive. Since that time, a lot has changed — technology, equipment and culture. The corporate landscape has shifted significantly also. In 1971, Missouri Power & Light Company provided power in Jefferson City as well as most of Central Missouri. In 1984, Missouri Power & Light merged with Union Electric Company, which eventually became Ameren UE and finally Ameren Missouri. In 2019, Ameren Corporation, the parent company of Ameren Missouri, Ameren Illinois, and Ameren Transmission, began an effort to investigate and analyze facilities across the bi-state system to determine overall facility health and identify buildings in need of upgrades or replacement. The facility at 1310 Industrial Drive made the list for replacement. The property search began in early 2020 with 12 potential sites. By August, Ameren whittled down those 12 properties to a couple and the decision was made to pursue a purchase contract with the Jefferson City Area Chamber of Commerce on a tract of land at the corner of Militia Drive and U.S. Highway 50/63 that is part of the Partnership Business Park. The Chamber told Ameren Missouri that another party had already provided a letter of intent on the exact same tract and that it was unavailable. The very same day, Ameren Missouri received a request from Three Rivers Electric Cooperative for information on lighting incentives for the old Fabick Caterpillar building which they had just purchased. The Fabick building is adjacent to the tract being pursued by Ameren Missouri. A quick call to Roger Kloeppel, CEO/General Manager for Three Rivers, revealed they were the other party interested in the tract.



Founded in 1939, the Three Rivers Electric Cooperative (TREC) has its headquarters in Linn, and in 1979 as the cooperative celebrated its 40th anniversary, a second facility was opened at 4800 Route E in Brazito. The cooperative is entering a new phase of growth as it opens its third facility, a construction and maintenance campus at 7050 Partnership Parkway in Jefferson City. For the past decade, TREC has been considering a building expansion at either the Linn facility or the Brazito facility. This expansion need was driven by the growth in the areas surrounding Jefferson City, and the equipment and personnel needed to maintain an aging distribution system. In 2020, TREC was given the opportunity to purchase an existing facility that answers almost all of our needs. The facility is probably better known as the Fabick building off Militia Drive. It is ironic that the new TREC facility is located on Partnership Parkway, said General Manager/CEO Roger Kloeppel. "The cooperative is experiencing its greatest growth in the western Osage County and eastern Cole County areas," he said. "We want to provide these members with the exceptional service our other members receive. In addition, we want to enter into a more meaningful partnership with the City of Jefferson and the County of Cole. Working together, we can accomplish great things." After several discussions, an agreement was made between Ameren Missouri, Three Rivers Electric Cooperative and the Chamber that would allow both utilities to co-exist at the same location — Ameren Missouri would get most of the original tract it was interested in and Three Rivers would get a portion of that same tract adjacent to the Fabick property they already owned.









This agreement between Ameren Missouri and Three Rivers Electric Cooperative is a win for both utilities – it solidifies an already strong partnership between the investor-owned utility and the rural electric cooperative, and sets the stage for future synergies due to their close proximity. Operational challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic and lessons learned have allowed Ameren Missouri to take a step back and look at building design. As the company moves into the design stage in 2022, they will take lessons learned to create a space that supports healthy interactions between co-workers, provides shared workspaces for co-workers who bridge between working from home and working in the office environment, and provides the operational structure to be successful in the rapidly changing utility industry. The planned timeline is to begin design work in 2022, with construction starting in 2023 and wrapping up in 2024. This project is part of Ameren Missouri's Smart Energy Plan that includes thousands of infrastructure projects throughout the state. Ameren Missouri, through the Smart Energy Plan, is investing in smart technology, stronger poles and upgraded power lines to help reduce outages and respond faster when they do occur. The Smart Energy Plan is one way we are Powering the Quality of Life now and for the future to benefit Missouri families, businesses and communities.
