Chamber Makes Changes to Office Position

It’s a week for changes in our community.

The Chamber’s Executive Board has voted to eliminate the position of Chamber Director and instead hire two part time people with specialized skills.

They are looking to hire a Bookkeeper; someone with experience with QuickBooks and very strong Excel skills.  This person will handle all the accounts payable, accounts receivable, payroll, taxes, billing, as well as sharing the general office duties and some marketing duties.

The second position will be Member Relations/Events Coordinator.  This person will spend time coordinating with all the chamber members to assess and fulfil their needs; they will plan and execute all Chamber events, working with the Executive Board and recruiting volunteers; as well as sharing the general office duties and marketing.

Between these two people, the office will be open from 10 am to 3 pm Monday through Friday; but will allow them both great flexibility.  One wakes up with a sick little one?  Simply call your counterpart to cover the office.  No worries about keeping the office open during vacations; there is always a second person available.

Anyone interested in applying for one of the two positions should submit a resume and cover letter detailing which job they are applying for and why to the Chamber office either in person at 106 N. Broadway in Herington, via email at, or through the job posting on the Chamber’s main Facebook page.  Resumes will be accepted through October 1.

Fun Times in the Community

There are a lot of fun things going on this Sunday.  The Herington Country Club is having their last tournament of the season and Friends Helping Friends is having a fundraising meal starting at 11:30 and going until they run out of food.  Knowing how fantastic Mark’s cooking is, it won’t last long.  He says he’s making beef and pork!  I’ll have to get mine to go, because I’m heading over to the Herington Community Building to start setting up for the HMH Foundation Quarter Mania.

I love Quarter Auctions.  They are one of those things that are hard to explain with words, but all you have to do is watch one round and you totally get it!  There is shopping from a variety of vendors, good snacks and drinks, and you can bid on and win great prize baskets for as little as a quarter.

Besides the HMH Foundation, which is a Chamber member, we will have three other Chamber members participating. 

Come out and let Kristi Lovett show you how to solve your hair issues with Monat: thinning hair, dry or damaged hair, color treated hair, Monat can give your hair what it deserves. 

Dopey Mixes has the most scrumptious dip mixes, BBQ sauces, spices, meat rubs and more.  He’s going to have several for you to samples. 

Of course, no event is complete without that crazy, pink haired Posh Lady.  She can pamper you from head to toe with products made from the best stuff mother nature has to offer.

Grab some friends and a roll of quarters and come support the Hospital Foundation.  Paddles are $5 for one or 4 for $20.
