A couple of weeks ago, when our entire country paused to give thanks for what we have (at least, I hope that’s what we’re doing, and not just stuffing our faces and running out the door to save on the latest toys), now is the perfect time to share the importance of expressing thanks to others. Look around today and see who might be due for a “Thank You”...or two. Whether in the workplace, among family or with total strangers, don’t underestimate the powerful influence of a little appreciation. Or more accurately...a lot!
The Brookings Area Chamber is thankful to our members for believing in our community and helping with the progress and advancement. During this season of hustle and bustle, slow down to appreciate the people and businesses that make our community great.
I would like to thank the Brookings Area Chamber Board of Directors for their dedication to meeting the mission and goals of the Chamber and the business community. The following are the individuals that make up the board of directors; Reva Johnson (President), Jim Schade, Jeff Lee, Julie Puetz (Past President), Tom Richter, Curt Osmanski, Tracy Greene, Staci Perry, Dr. Merritt Warren, Jessica Hardt, Abigail Howard, Jeni Norwood, Chris Chase, Carrie Law, Michael Johnson and John Hittle. Thank you for all you do for the betterment of Brookings and the leadership you provide for the Chamber.
