NO MEMBERSHIP LUNCHEON IN DECEMBER
2016 Sherwood Chamber Leadership Executive Committee
Secretary ................. Mita Sitaram Sandy Ledbetter
Since December is such a busy month for most of us, we traditionally skip our Membership Luncheon this month. We look forward to our Annual Business Meeting on January 5, 2017. The Sherwood Chamber of Commerce wishes all of our members and friends a very "Merry Christmas" and hope you enjoy a safe and happy holiday season!

The Sherwood Chamber Military Relations Committee organized the 2016 Veterans' Day Parade in memory of Butch Davis. Butch was instrumental in organizing the parade in 2010, and it has become an annual event, growing each year. Butch's widow, Judy Davis, was this year's Grand Marshall. Thank you to VFW Post 2935 and to TC Print Solutions for your contributions in honoring our veterans.

SHERWOOD CHAMBER LEADS GROUP
We're looking forward to the Grand Opening of Sherwood's Dairy Queen at 1550 Country Club Road on Saturday, December 31. The company is now accepting employment applications. The management team will be conducting interviews on November 30-December 2 at the Wildwood Centre, 2402 Wildwood Ave.
Norwegian scientists have hypothesized that Rudolphâ€™s red nose is probably the result of a parasitic infection of his respiratory system. The Germans made the first artificial Christmas trees out of dyed goose feathers. Each year more than 3 billion Christmas cards are sent in the U.S. alone. The 2016 Trail of Lights will begin at 511 Bear Paw Road and will end at Sherwood Forest. You'll want to come see the new displays this year!
All the gifts in the Twelve Days of Christmas would equal 364 gifts.
