CHAMBER CHATTER

Hi everyone. Did you miss me? I had a great visit with my Mom, and got her yard all ready for her bedding plants. We love to garden.

Had some changes to our upcoming events. Blair Lekstrom had to cancel the June 2, 2008 luncheon, but he will be here, just a different date. So please watch for it; also the September 12 & 13th workshop will be a different weekend as well.

You all know about the golf tournament coming up June 21, 2008. A 2008 Ford Ranger pickup will be sitting at Hole 3. If you get a hole in one, you will drive it home, and it will be yours for two years ? FREE. This is sponsored by CAPITAL MOTORS in Dawson. We also have a two night stay in the Holiday Inn Express in Grande Prairie in a Whirlpool Suite that we will be auctioning off, compliments of the POMEROY GROUP. We are working on a couple of other good auction items. Prices are $60 per person members, $70 per person non-members. You may want to book your foursome soon, as they are already half sold. The price includes 18 holes of golf, followed by a steak dinner. You will also be able to warm up at the driving range and get some advice from the pro, thanks to LAPRAIRIE CRANE. This will be a fun filled afternoon for all classes of golfers, from beginner to best, and lots of nice prizes will be given out.

Other workshops and events that I am working on are listed below, they are not all organized yet. We are trying to get information into town that will benefit our members and the whole community.

A little girl had just finished her first week of school. ?I?m just wasting my time,? she told her mother. ?I can?t read, I can?t write, and they WON?T let me talk?!!
