Benefits of Membership
26th Annual Golf Tournament
The 26th Annual Chamber Golf Tournament was held on Friday, August 2nd at the Kirksville Country Club. The weather was beautiful and 160 golfers joined us for a day of sunshine and fun. Special thanks to our hole sponsors for their support. Colton's Steakhouse and Holiday Inn Express-University Area provided 2 free beverages for each of our golfers. Northeast Missouri State Bank provided portable snack boxes for each golfer at the end of the day. Concerns for the safety of our teams prevented us from having the usual social gathering at the end of the day inside the Country Club. This is the only Fundraising Activity the Chamber was able to host this year.
Kirksville Leadership Institute Retreat
The 2020 Class of the Kirksville Leadership Institute met at Wine on Washington for a full day retreat back in February. It was an opportunity to get acquainted and make plans for the upcoming year. Unfortunately, the Covid-19 pandemic has made meeting together a challenge. We took a couple of months off, then began to meet again via Zoom. We meet in person when possible, and virtually when we cannot. We have extended our class time to November, when the class will graduate. They are currently working to raise money for 2 class projects.
