CHAMBER Quarterly BRIEFINGS
January 18, 2015
Members with websites, we encourage you to
add a Chamber logo graphic
and link to your website. For the graphic and
instructions please visit, Grab-The-Code.
Welcome to a New Year, 2015
Just a few things to update at this time:
Several have asked for more info (regarding the
sidewalk project). I...wanted to let you know
that the Leadership Class 2014 has their
brochures ready on their sidewalk project at the
new park. They are available here at the office,
the Henry Co. Library, and will be placed around
the county. I hope you will be able to support
this great project, and it is tax deductible as
a charitable donation. If you have questions,
call the Chamber.
This Is Henry County
is that time of year again to advertise in the
This is Henry County magazine that will be
published with the Henry County Local on March
25. This magazine showcases our county, and your
ad lets people far and wide know you are here
and ready to do business with them. These
magazines have been sent to Maine, California,
New York and so many other places in our
relocation packets. Not only are they sent all
over the country, but also we gave out over 800
at the state fair in our Pride of the Counties
booth. That is not counting the people who live
locally who read and keep it as a reference
throughout the year. People who receive them
have come by the office when they move to Henry
County and tell me of their enjoyment of seeing
the many businesses located in our county. But
if you are not in the book, they may never know
you have a great business to share with them.
Churches, organizations, industries, and service
organizations are encouraged to give their
information through an ad as well.
Ads from 1/8 page to full are offered. As in the
past, chamber members receive a 15% discount on
the ad and a 1/8 page is only $81.00. Prices for
the slick pages and inside pages are on the
order form. You can either fill out the order
form (LINK HERE and print

The only requirement to be a
Chamber Ambassador is that you be a employee or owner of a business in good
standing with the Chamber or be an associate member and want to expand your

Just select for Henry County Kentucky or whatever community or state.
If your business can benefit
(Check) Henry County First campaign to keep
money in Henry County, call the office to be a member. It costs the business
nothing, and when a certificate is used in your business, let the Chamber
know and a check is written for the amount of the certificate. We all win
because that money stayed in Henry County. We have 15 retail businesses
listed now, and we certainly could use more.
Maintaining your membership
in the Chamber not only helps you, but it helps the entire community. If
there were no chamber, businesses would have no unified voice to promote the
county and its resources. Our executive director goes outside the county to
meetings and events to promote Henry County. It is another arm to make sure
Henry County stays successful.

were prepared by our Extension Community and Economic
Development Initiative. They suggested that the data would
be of interest to many community leaders.

It is certainly looking a lot like Christmas
with all of the towns lighting their beautiful
decorations and having Santa visit. I am
attaching a poem I found that sums up how
working for the Chamber has made me a better
person because of the many wonderful people I
have met and had the honor of working for the
betterment of Henry Co.

end of June 2015 when I retire (for the second
time in my lifetime).
