Guest speaker was Becky Parks who will be the new website manager in place of Amanda Webb, wife of former KHS math instructor, Jerred Webb since the Webbs have moved from Keytesville to St. Robert, MO.

Becky spoke briefly about some ideas she had to enhance the website and do some tweaking, and distributed some mock up ads that could be used if members wanted to further advertise their businesses on the website other than just having a listing.

Further business involved plans for the ping pong ball drop to be held on Sterling Price Day, Sept. 8. Ticket sheets were distributed to members who wanted them and the ticket prices are $2.00 per ticket (for one numbered ping pong ball) and 6 for $10.00

Michael Gaines spoke briefly about continuing efforts to recruit businesses to Chariton County’s Work Ready area as well as a recent meeting regarding MODot and the bridge replacement over Musselfork Creek. Fortunately at this point there are no plans to close the bridge entirely for this work with the exception of maybe a few days only rather than for the originally planned months of closure which would have entailed expensive detours and great inconvenience.

Business of the month remains Kendall Littleton (no interview yet)—hopefully soon; and Donuts of the month was awarded to Schachtele Auction.

The next meeting is set for Sept. 17, 2018, at noon at The Café’.

There being no further business, Lowell Newsom moved to adjourn with Carla Watts seconding and all members present voted favorably. Meeting adjourned.
