The July 2016 Chamber of Commerce Luncheon was catered by Papa's Pizzeria and hosted by the folks at Boulders Inn. Chamber President Kyle Matzen opened the meeting with a quick round of introductions and a reminder that if anyone is interested in serving on the Chamber Board next year to contact him. After an update on the events schedule and Polk City Four Seasons Festival, Kyle introduced our speaker.
This month our speaker was Sergeant First Class Rob Haspels with the American Legion Post 232 here in Polk City. Rob shared with us about the mission of the American Legion and how that works out here in the Polk City area. After a quick rundown on all the events and activities the Legion is involved in , Rob talked about the upcoming Lobster Fest which is their largest annual fund raiser. Additional info about the Post 232 and their events and activities can be found at their website Post232.org.
President Matzen then closed the meeting by noting there are still plenty of sponsorships available for the golf outing later this month.
