Chamber of Commerce Spotlight:
Business of the Month:
Sherry’s Place, owned and operated by Sherry Meyer of Dalton, MO, was selected as the Keytesville Chamber of Commerce’s Business of the Month for November. Sherry stated she has owned the business since Mar. 24, 1996, purchasing it from the late Dick Davis and Hazel Clarkson who currently resides in Glasgow, MO. Her business is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. until 1:30 a.m. but closes as midnight on Sundays.
Besides having a dance once per month, Sherry’s Place has lunch specials on Tues., Wed., and Thurs, and on the other days one orders off the menu. The lunch specials usually consist of Tuesdays: spaghetti, salad and garlic bread, Wednesdays: hot beef sandwiches and mashed potatoes and gravy, and Thursdays: pork fritters, mashed potatoes and gravy, with another vegetable. The menu offerings include appetizers and assorted sandwiches.
On occasion Sherry has had a dance-a-thon to benefit St. Jude’s Childrens Hospital. She also is quite conscientious about saving used aluminum cans and faithfully recycles them, often taking a semi-truck load at a time and using the proceeds from this to benefit her employees at Christmas using the money gained to provide them with Christmas bonuses.
She also saves tabs from the aluminum cans to benefit Ronald McDonald House.
Sherry is married to John Meyer of Dalton and is the mother of three adult daughters: April, Carrie, and Michelle and has a total of 9 grandchildren—6 grandsons and 3 granddaughters.
In her spare time, which is very limited, Sherry likes to quilt and has made numerous quilts out of velvet containers for Crown Royal. Her most unusual quilt was made from a limited edition covering for Crown Royal bottles that featured camo patterned material. Besides making quilts, Sherry says she likes playing on their farm with her animals which consist of six horses, and 8 dogs.
The Keytesville Chamber of Commerce would like to congratulate Sherry’s Place “A Place to Get Loony” as Keytesville’s November Business of the Month.
Volunteer of the Quarter:
Since the month of October is associated with Fire Safety, it is only fitting that the Keytesville Chamber of Commerce recognizes the invaluable service provided to the community by the Volunteer Firemen of the Keytesville Fire Protection District.
Some research has revealed that the Keytesville Fire Protection District is comprised of approximately 30-35 individuals who are all strictly volunteers. These volunteers come from all different professions. All these people avail themselves of training sessions to learn the best way to fight various kinds of fires most efficiently.
Surprisingly enough in the Keytesville Fire Protection District there are numerous family members—at least 4 sets of fathers and sons, 7 sets of brothers, uncles, cousins, as well as children and relatives of retired Keytesville volunteer firemen.
According to the current Fire Chief, Rick Jones, the present day equipment includes a 2017 Pierce Engine on a Freightliner chassis, a 2002 Pierce Engine on a Kenworth Chassis, a 1997 Mack Tanker and a 1994 Ford 350 Brush Unit.
The Keytesville Fire Protection District is presently housed in a modern facility built in 1990 at the west corner of Bridge and Park Street. This building has 4 bays, a water fill station, classroom area, bunker gear area, workshop, showers and restrooms.
Presently the Keytesville Fire Protection District serves an area of 64 square miles and includes the Chariton County Court House, several large grain facilities, several governmental facilities, some conservation areas, the City of Keytesville and the Village of Dalton.
The Keytesville Fires Protection District has a new website that describes the history of the early fire department in Keytesville and how it evolved over time into the present day entity. You can read more about this noteworthy group of volunteers by going to www.kfpd.org. The Keytesville Chamber of Commerce salutes all of our Volunteer Firemen and their organization--the Keytesville Fire Protection District.
