Buy Local campaign for Saturday, November 30, 2013 is Small Business Saturday – a day to celebrate and support small businesses and all they do for their communities. Please join all of us across the country in supporting small businesses by shopping locally this Saturday. I think we are all becoming more aware of what our dollars do when we spend them; when we buy something that is locally made the money is staying in our community. Shopping in Brandenburg is easy this year and a lot more fun because you can enjoy friends and family afterwards for the wonderful Christmas by the River afterwards!

The Member of the Month for November is Brandenburg Family Medicine. Drs. Kyle King and Brian Honaker do a great job of leading our community in family practice medicine, and staying on top of the medical needs and concerns of our citizens.
Their office staff, managed by Sherri Garnett, are familiar faces at our education sessions and luncheons. Sherri’s support and input helps me insure the chamber continues to identify all the components of running a busy office in a small business are offered in our members training opportunities.
The practice, Brandenburg Family Medicine, is often seen at local community events promoting the benefits of good medical care. Their commitment and support of the Chamber, City of Brandenburg and Meade County have not gone unnoticed!
