Annual Chamber Banquet 2019

Annual Chamber Banquet 2019

                What a Groovy night it was!!  The decorations looked wonderful, the food was delicious, the atmosphere was fun and the crowd was AMAZING!!!  Yes, you - our members and partners are AMAZING.  It is so much fun to gather together for the night and see what we have done for the past year.  Congratulations to our award winners....Community Hospital, Ken and Marlene Foster, and Sharon Bohling.  These are all well deserved honors to some very committed individuals in our community.

                The snow kept a few people away but the dancing was fun and kept everyone warm inside.  The committee worked so hard on making this a great success, and it was.  We tried some new things this year and of course we learned some ways that we can make it even better. 

                Then, did you see those costumes........people really put on their groove.  It looked like we were right out of the 70's.  When people have fun and get into the spirit, it always makes it easier to network and socialize with other business members.  So as we Belong to the Chamber and Engage with our talents we will Succeed together!!  Making McCook a GREAT place to LIVE,  WORK  and PLAY!

McCook - Is it your way of life?

As I sit here today thinking about everything going on, I look out the window and see the streets busy and people out and about everywhere.  I think about the Chamber's Annual Banquet that I am working on and hope to get finished up in the next day or two. Then I get a great video about Parker Hannifin hose plant here in McCook, Sehnert's won the James Beard Award and the High School crowned their Color Day Royalty last weekend.  WOW, there is a lot going on in McCook!  What a great place that we have to Live, Work and Play.

There are times I think that we get into so much of a routine that we forget what is happening around us.  We get up, go to work and then home again.  We might run after our children's activities and run to the grocery store.  When was the last time you did something different?  When was the last time that you went to an event just to relax and enjoy the company of others?  In McCook we have so many opportunities throught the year to do this that I think we forget about.  So may we all support the better things in life.... in McCook... and enjoy our time in this great community.
