Bookmark and Share

I hoped you enjoyed the 89er Celebration. The crowds were estimated between 25,000 and 30,000. I heard many people comment it was one of the best parades they have seen. Congratulations and thank you to everyone who worked hard on the committee.

Chamber President Mary Coffin

With Tornado season upon us you might be interested in signing up for the Code Red Community Notification System. Code Red is used to warn individuals who are absolutely in the path of a tornado. Signing up uses your address compared against latitude and longitude to be sure there aren’t false warnings and call you on your home phone or cell phone when you need to take shelter.  If you are interested in signing up call the City of Guthrie at 282-0496.

God’s Food Bank is organizing a community garden this Saturday from 10a.m. to 3p.m and needs your help. They will be working on raised beds and laying paving stones donated by Dolese. The produce grown in these beds will be given to people who go to God’s Food Bank for food. The next phase of raised beds will be for anyone in the community. The sole purpose of the garden is to increase fruit and produce for Logan County residents.  For more information please contact Kim Quigley at 613-6666.   

Legally Blonde the Musical will be winding up its show this weekend, Thursday the 26th through Sunday the 29th at the Pollard Theater.

While we are on the subject of produce, the Farmers Market will be in full swing in six weeks. We will open the first Saturday in June from 8a.m. to noon. Our market is 100% home grown and is advertised in publications all over the state as such.    

Business After Hours will be next Thursday, May 3rd at Cimarron Casino from 5:30ish to 7p.m. We hope these After Hours meetings will be successful like our Wednesday coffees, casual and fun.   

Educational Series will be held Tuesday, May 8th in the Chamber Boardroom. Insurance Commissioner John Doak would like to discuss insurance issues, including workers compensation that business owners may be having in the state.  This would allow him to take issues to the Capital and try to obtain resolution. Please RSVP by calling 282-1947 for lunch.   

Silver Lake Spa located at 1724 E. Oklahoma Ave. will have their Grand Opening, Saturday, April 28th from 10a.m. to 4p.m. They will host the coffee this Wed. followed by a ribbon cutting. I hope to see you there to support another new business to Guthrie! The High School Prom is scheduled this Saturday at the Dominion House. Have a great week!
