Hello! We had a full house for our annual banquet last Thursday. We heard rave reviews about the food prepared by the Guthrie Job Corp! I’ve seen a few people since the banquet that had never been and they really had a good time. Thanks to the many folks that contributed their time and goods to make it successful.

Congratulations to Volunteer of the Year, Hersey Hammons, and Business of the Year: Dan Newton, Edward Jones and it was a tie for Citizen of the Year: Lashelle Ratcliff and Dan Newton. The Guthrie High School Choir gave us a snippet of their spring performance during the banquet. It’s “How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying” directed by Bill Perring, Choreography by Jennifer Rosson, accompanied by Bette Berline. Tickets are $8 adults and $5 for students. You can catch their spring performance March 2nd, 3rd, 9th and 10th at Faver Auditorium.

Whether a disgruntled customer, employee issue, or dealing with product issues, we feel lost as to how to diffuse and handle the situation.
