Upcoming Events

A Matter of Balance - 8 session class held on Tuesdays from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. beginning March 5th at the Waynesville/St. Robert Senior Center. This program emphasizes practical strategies to manage falls. In the class you will learn to: view falls as controllable, set goals for increasing activity, make changes to reduce fall risks at home, and exercise to increase strength and balance. Program cost is $25 per person. For more information or to register call the Pulaski County Extension Office at 573-774-6177.

Starting Seeds Indoor Workshop - March 7th at 6:00 p.m. Whether you are using seeds bought from a nursery catalogue, or seeds collected from your own garden, starting seeds indoors can be a rewarding investment of time and resources. Plants grown by seed indoors in a greenhouse, cold frame, or under grow lights inside a home, offer the benefits of early maturing plants and harvests, better weed competition, healthier less vulnerable plants to pests, and less manual thinning of plants. Seed collecting, storing, and starting, is both and art and a science. To be successful, it is important to have the right knowledge and tools to perform the job in a precise, diligent, and scheduled manner. For more information call the Pulaski County Extension Office at 573-774-6177.

**Please note** The Chamber of Commerce is excited to have such a large number of its members attend monthly luncheons. Unfortunately, due to the large number of last minute Chamber luncheon attendees a policy has been put into place by the Chamber Board of Directors. This policy started in APRIL 2005; anyone who responds after the R.s.v.p. cut-off time (9:00 a.m. the Tuesday before the luncheon) or shows up without an R.s.v.p. may be charged an additional $10. If an R.s.v.p. is received and they do not attend the luncheon there may be a $10 charged for the meal. The decision was made to charge this amount to compensate our Chamber member restaurants for the last minute adjusts they must make to their menus.

St. Pat's Party - March 15th at 7:00 p.m. at Peppers Sports Bar & Grill. There will be beads, giveaways, karaoke, green bar, and a Rueben sandwich special. For more information call Peppers Sports Bar & Grill at 573-336-2100.
