Though it is six months away, the antique motorcycle show is going to be lots of fun and, hopefully, area businesses will take advantage of the opportunities it will bring. Don't wait for a formal invitation to let us know your business is interested in participating. There's plenty of room and many different ways to have your business involved. The Home & Business Show is scheduled for Feb. 23 at the Norwalk Middle School. This will be our seventh show and spaces are filling up fast. This year we are working on plans for a health fair feature, new demonstrations, new lunch counter menu and lots more. If you are a member business and want to exhibit in this show you need to RSVP space very soon. The past several years there has been a waiting list of exhibitors. If you are not a member business it isn't too late to join the chamber and get in the show. Call the office for details, (419) 668-4155. The annual banquet is March 27 at the PAC and comedian Karen Vandino will be the entertainment this year. You can wait for the formal invitation for this event and those will be in the mail in the coming weeks. The banquet is really a great night to be part of the chamber. It's a charge to see more than 250 chamber members all gathered in one spot, having a good time and recognizing several very deserving community volunteers. Speaking of recognizing volunteers, the nomination forms are available on our Web site and in the office. We all know someone that goes above and beyond by volunteering in the community. Take a few minutes to nominate them for the Dedicated Service, Distinguished Citizen or Business Woman of the Year. Candidates for these awards do not need to be chamber members, they just need to volunteer or be a strong role model for other women in business. Nominations are due prior to March 7 so don't delay.
