Old and new business items and a review of previous and upcoming events were on the table when the Holden Area Chamber of Commerce held its monthly meeting Thursday, Aug. 3.
Taking up old business, member Tony Lerda told the Chamber the downtown installation of railings should be completed before this year’s Holden Street Fair later this month. However, he added the painting of them would have to take place afterwards, due to some miscommunication with the installation company about when the event was scheduled. On a good note, though, Chamber President Lynette Zimmer and member Shane Spencer said the 72nd Airborne Division is still planning to assist with that task.
In a Main Street update, Jennifer Smithson said the Holdenopoly game board project is going well, with just a few “properties” and a deck of cards left to sell.
Regarding Chamber meeting presentations by various businesses, Zimmer said she hadn’t received any additional feedback after first introducing the idea, but she and Jason Conley are continuing to brainstorm and will present their ideas at a later date.
In new business, it was reported Lori Harris had issued her resignation as a member of the Chamber Board and members are looking into the possibility of several local both business owners in Holden, taking her place.
Reports followed with the Welcoming Committee noting Shane’s Barber Shop had a ribbon cutting and the new Revive Health Holden business has shown interest in having one as well after settling into its Holden location.
In other news, Holden Mayor Ray Briscoe told the Chamber the Holden Police Department is in need of a temporary location until renovations can be made on its current building.
