Chamber Member Information / Recognition Where Is This… in Madison County? Be one of the first three to email the correct location of the picture to the left to me at: chamberdirector@fredericktownmissouri.net.

Correct answers can be either an address or the name of the business/organization. The first three correct answers will win a FREE meal at this month’s chamber luncheon on July 12th. (Winners must RSVP for the luncheon not later than July 10th.) Sharon Petty owner of Shandi Shores World Travel has agreed to provide us with an exciting luncheon attendance incentive. Every current chamber member who attends a luncheon from June through December 2012 will have their name entered in a drawing to win a 3 day, 2night Branson Vacation! The winner will be drawn at the annual banquet. The Madison County Extension Council is sponsoring a Couponing Class on July 17th from 6 to 8 pm. The instructor will be Amy Woodall who has appeared on Extreme Couponing. Amy has been a couponer for 3 years. It all started when her husband became ill and could not work. Amy, at the time, was working part time. After seeing someone on television save $17 with coupons, Amy decided that she could also do that. After many hours of researching, she started coupon in June of 2009 and has not looked back. According to Amy: “We are a family of six (that includes 2 teenage boys!!), and I spend an average of $200 a month on groceries, health and beauty items and paper items. This didn't happen overnight but with sticking with couponing it finally did happen. I do have a small stockpile nothing huge, but it is enough that if something tragic happens we wouldn't have to worry about food for 2 or 3 months.” Join us for our Coupon Class and learn all the ins and outs of couponing. For more information or to register, please call the Madison County Extension Center at 783-3303. Our programs are open to all.

I’d like to say a big thank you to Captain Eric Hovis with the Fredericktown Police Department. Captain Hovis was gracious enough to take the time out of his busy schedule to fill in for our guest speaker at our June Luncheon. So from everyone at the Chamber of Commerce Thank You very much . You are doing a great job and we appreciate everything you do!

Meet the New Chamber Director Hello everyone, my name is Kyle Wright and I am the new Chamber Director. I enjoy long walks on the beach and …… oh wait I guess that’s not really what I’m supposed to put here. I’ve lived in Fredericktown for about six years now, and I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. I’m married to Veronika Wright and we have two little boys, Keiden (7) and Garret (3). I’ve been heavily involved in the community for the last couple of years including being a member of the Fredericktown Revitalization Initiative, serving on the Arts and Tourism committee, coaching baseball and soccer and most recently serving on the Planning and Zoning Commission. I’m really excited about working for the community and striving to make it the place where people can raise a family and take pride in where they are from. I think we can do this by taking the Chamber back to its roots of being a community organization that’s based on community involvement. We need everyone to work together! We have multiple organizations all working towards the same goals, but they aren’t working together. So everyone be prepared because you’re going to start seeing a lot of me. I’m going to make it a point to get out and com-
