From the President

March is Women’s History Month.  Searching websites on this topic is fascinating.  Historically, women have been active in promoting women’s rights and equality prior to the Civil War.  As you know, women marched and demonstrated to be given the right to vote in 1920 with the 19th amendment of the constitution. Perseverance does get results!

The Dala Business Women also has a history of promoting activities to enhance the education and leadership of women.  For our meeting this month we have planned a festive evening with an excellent speaker and a silent auction to raise scholarship funds for young women. Also, Julie Asmus, President of Minnesota Business and Professional Women will be our guest.

It is the time of the year to nominate members to step into leadership roles for the 2017-2018 year.  No experience is necessary! Coaching and mentoring will be provided!

We invite you and your friends to join us for an evening of food*, fun and fellowship on March 27th! 

Wanda Lamprecht
President

*Reservations are requested for meetings. (However, if a member makes a reservation and does not attend, DBW is responsible for the price of the meal!)

Murder Mystery Silent Auction

On April 1st of this year, the Mora Area Chamber of Commerce will put on its
14th Annual Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre fundraiser,
“Shoot First and Ask Vinnie Later”.
The funds generated from this annual event have allowed us through the
Kanabec Area Chamber Foundation, to give scholarships to business owners/employees that can facilitate in helping our chamber member businesses to grow.

Above: 2016 $500. Scholarship Winner Mariah Riedl (with Present Chamber President Toni Fulton and Executive Director Karen Amundson)

Above: 2016 $500. Scholarship Winner Randi Martens-Goeppinger
with Chamber Board

The Chamber’s Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre production features within its script, a silent auction of items donated by our local businesses, Murder Mystery cast, crew and community members.
All contributions are tax deductible as the Kanabec Area Chamber Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

The Chamber Board Members ask that you please consider putting together a basket, finding a special article, baking your favorite dessert, giving of yourself, or whatever you would like to do or give – to contribute to this worthy event, as you have in year’s past. Your items will be set up in our silent auction, with your name as donor & logo if we have it, prominently displayed.  Also, all donors will be listed on our “Shoot First & Ask Vinnie Later” Program as well as with signs on the Silent Auction tables and verbally as silent auction winners are announced.

Donation items can be delivered to Karen at the Chamber office, (16 North Lake St.) Jodi at Neighborhood National Bank, Staci at Spire Credit Union, Rose at Northern Lights Realty or Nancy at Dandelion Floral & Gifts.
Board members can be called upon to pick up items – phone numbers are listed below.

Thank you for considering a donation for the Chamber’s Murder Mystery and we hope that you will also plan to attend!

Please share with others regarding Providing Child Care

Just as jobs are important, so is the care of our children while we work to support the family. Please share this with others – it is open to all – Children are our future but are there enough providers for them when we have to go to work? There needs to be people we feel comfortable with leaving our most precious loved ones. Please RSVP to Jordan– it’s free but we’d like a count of folks who are planning to come.

Thank you.
