Business of the Month
Hestands Floral and Gifts was selected by the Chamber as the April Business of the Month. The business has helped the Chamber by sponsoring the roses for the Little Miss Merry Christmas Contest sponsored by the Ambassadors each Christmas. Owner Rosalie Richards also keeps the business involved with the community with events like the Good Neighbor program and other programs. Currently, the greenhouses are being renovated and will be transformed with a grand re-opening later this spring.
Volunteer of the Month
Patty Cain, a teacher at James Elementary School was selected as April Volunteer of the Month by the Chamber. She was nominated for her assistance in operating gardens at the school that educate the students on what is involved in growing a garden and how it works along with the importance of choosing fresh vegetables in their diet. Cain was nominated for stepping up during the pandemic to maintain what was planted through the spring and summer last year. Without her help the program would have faltered by the fall.
