Spring has finally arrived, and the Chamber is looking forward to our Business Expo on May 11.

We are welcoming a number of new members who will be at the Expo to share with you information about their businesses as well as many of our long time members who look forward to making new friends.

The Chamber wants to welcome the following new members: Webfoo Inc., with Jason Mesker is a full service Information Technology company that can customize a portfolio of services and hardware all under one roof. Web development, server leasing- they can put you in control of your digital environment. He can be reached at cj@webfoo.net or at (502) 276-4041. He is located in Pendleton.

Cash Express has opened an office at 17 Depot Street in Eminence. Anna Sloan, manager, welcomes you to check them out when you need a check cashed. Her phone number is 845-8046.

The Wright Company with owner Kevin Wright has an impressive list of services such as remodeling kitchens, bathrooms, restorations, or whatever needs you may have.

He also serves as a handyman for those jobs you cannot handle. It is rare to find a person who can do the small things that we need done, but he is the “wright” man for the job.

We also welcome Hometown Pizza to the Chamber. They have been providing mouthwatering pizza for several years in Eminence and their lunch buffet is great. Call in your order to 845-5006.

Gentiva Health Services/Home Health Care serves Henry Co. with a variety of assistance for those who need help in the home. They can be reached at 647-1025.

You can meet these new members as well as many of our chamber businesses at the First Business Expo on May 11 at the Highland Renaissance Fairegrounds from 11-3.

The public is invited to visit with our good Henry County businesses and perhaps win a Kindle if you visit all of them and get your program stamped. You will then be eligible for the grand prize drawing sponsored by Torrey Smith Realty, Doug Bates, Managing Broker.

Other sponsors (as of this article) are PBI Bank, Pleasureville and Eminence who are sponsoring our advertising; Jewish Hospital, Shelbyville and DWB Restoration II Inc., are contributing sponsors.

We hope to have more sponsors before the day of the Expo.

There will be free food samples, coloring contest for the youngsters, entertainment from the cast of the Renaissance Faire, live archery demo from Eminence School archery team, and more as we are still finalizing plans.

This is a free event to the public, and many booths will give doorprizes as well as small giveaways.

Some of the businesses will bring a variety of items to sell, and this is the weekend of Mother’s Day.

Don’t forget to check out the items and save yourself time and gas, and get good marks from mom as well. Some of the businesses will also have job applications if they have openings.

The Chamber wants this to be a tribute to our good businesses and only you, the public, can make it a success. We hope to see you there, and this will be held rain or shine as there are covered areas available.

If your business, church, or civic club would like to be a member of the Chamber and have a booth at the Business Expo (you must be a member to have a booth), call the office at 845-806 or check out the website at www.chamber.henrycountyky.com where you can find an application.
