Raise It Up Anthem for America

On June 14, 2014, the Waynesville-St. Robert Chamber of Commerce brought together 224 people at the Waynesville High School Football Stadium and sang the Star Spangled Banner to celebrate the bicentennial of the American Flag and to be part of the National Museum of American History's goal of setting a new Guinness World Record for the largest collective National Anthem performance in history.

2014 Ambassador Club Day!

June 22nd was proclaimed as Waynesville-St. Robert Chamber of Commerce Ambassador Club Day. This is a special day to acknowledge the efforts of these volunteers and to thank them for their work in and support of the community. The Chamber Staff and Summer Vista Assistant visited the each of the Ambassadors on Friday, June 20th to thank them for the work they do to help make the Waynesville-St. Robert community a great place to live, shop, and play.

2013-2014 Year Review

During the last year, the Chamber worked with media partners to launch the "It's All Here" advertising campaign and established the "Keep It Local" discount key tag program. To sustain these programs that directly benefit our local economy, the Chamber is implementing a business membership dues increase for the 2014-2015 fiscal year. This will be the first membership dues increase since 2010. Dues for businesses with 24 or less employees will increase by $25 and dues for businesses with 25 or more employees will increase by $50. The structure of individual, non-profit, and media partner memberships will not change. A portion of Chamber membership dues helps to fund the "It's All Here" advertising campaign and the "Keep It Local" program. These two programs encourage consumers to spend their dollars locally and this supports your business. The dues increase will allow the Chamber to allocate an estimated $8,600.00 annually to help fund these programs. Our media partners have provided free of charge to the It's All Here campaign over $43,000 in advertising since December of 2013.

Also in the past year, the chamber has held 37 ribbon cuttings, gained 78 new members, distributed 330 welcome packets at command orientation, distributed 120 welcome packets at the office, provided 2,566 referrals to our members' businesses, distributed 9,429 newsletters (viewed online 1,995 times), distributed 40,885 weekly updates (viewed online 8,139 times), had 24,673 unique user visits to our web site and held 30 events with a total of 3,043 people attending.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, volunteers and staff; it has been a pleasure to serve you and the Chamber is looking forward to another year of working hard supporting the businesses in the Waynesville-St. Robert Area. It is our sincerest wish that you renew your membership for another year so that we may continue to grow together.

Membership Social

The 2014 Membership Social will be July 31st at 6 p.m. at the Hampton Inn. Sponsoring this event is Citizens Mortgage Company with Di Trapani's Italian Bistro providing the food.

The Membership Bottle Auction is a fun addition for members to promote their business as well as learn about other member businesses. Participating members will donate a bottle decorated in a way that no one can tell what it contains. The bottle needs to be related in some way to your business. For example if you are a dry cleaner you could wrap up a bottle of detergent with a gift certificate for dry cleaning. During the social the bottles will be displayed then auctioned. Bidding for each bottle will start at $5. No one will know what each bottle contains until after it is won. All money raised during the Membership Bottle Auction will go to the "It's All Here" shop local ad campaign in support of Shop Small Business Saturday. Keep it Local, This is our Home and It's All Here!

If you would like to donate a bottle contact the Chamber office at 573-336-5121 or email All bottles are due to the Chamber office by 5:00 p.m. July 24th. You might win big or get a dud but the Membership Bottle Auction will be an exciting edition to the 2014 Membership Social.

Be a CHOICES Presenter

The Waynesville-St. Robert Chamber of Commerce and Rotary Club of Pulaski County are pleased to bring the CHOICES Program to the eighth grade students of Pulaski County. The CHOICES Program is a highly participatory classroom seminar, presented by local volunteers from both the Chamber of Commerce and Rotary Club. It uses interactive exercises to help students learn the impact of their choices and how to take control of their lives through wise decision-making when it comes to time and money management as well as education.

The success of this project can be summed up best in the words of a student after completing the CHOICES presentation, "It (self-discipline) means pushing myself to do the right thing even if it's hard." By focusing on real world topics such as time management, job opportunities, self-discipline, and staying in school CHOICES drives home the lessons that are so often overlooked.

The Chamber and Rotary Club will present CHOICES to every school district in Pulaski County during the 2014-2015 school year. If you would like to get involved as either a presenter or a donor please contact the Chamber office at 573-336-5121.

Good morning everyone! I am excited about the coming year for the Waynesville-St. Robert Chamber of Commerce. I want to express my appreciation to Mike Dunbar for the many hours that he has spent over the past two years making this a better Chamber. Mike has been instrumental in many accomplishments for our Chamber and we can never repay him for all that he has done. Working with Mike over the last two years has been a learning and rewarding experience for me. Thanks Mike for a job well done and for taking the time to help make this a better place to live and have a business.

As your new President for the next year, I hope to continue the tradition of our Chamber to coordinate the efforts of commerce, industry and the professions in maintaining and strengthening a sound and healthy business climate in the Waynesville-St. Robert area. I will always promote the theme of shop local and support your chamber members. Our area has a lot to offer, we as Chamber members just need to continue to get the message out. I look forward to working with all of you and please feel free to contact me with any suggestions. As we approach the 4th of July holiday weekend, God bless the USA and God bless each of you.

Moving forward, United!

I received a Score Article that I will share this month. The article is titled saving money a routine part of business. At the DMV we are always looking at ways to cut expenses to improve the bottom line. The first suggestion is capitalize on commodities. Most office houses offer a wide range of store brand products at reduced prices. Look for ways to earn discounts and reward points. The second suggestion is pare down on paper. Most routine documents can be saved electronically for transfer, emailing, or storage. I also, recycle paper by re-purposing for note-taking. If possible double side documents as much as possible. The DMV averages 68,000 transactions a year and they use lots of paper. Speaking of recycling consider used furnishings and equipment rather the latest and greatest products. Another huge expense at the DMV is printer ink cartridges. There are companies that offer recycled printer cartridges and discounts to return cartridges. The fourth suggestion in the article is be a joiner. Many professional organizations partner with business service providers to give their members discounted prices on goods and services. The Chamber's member to member is a perfect example of being in a professional organization. The fifth suggestion is be a smart shopper, even with regular suppliers. Don't keep paying for things you no longer need. Paying a little more out of habit or because you've always bought that particular product may make life more convenient, but those added expenses can quickly accumulate and erode your profit margin. Remember the old saying " a penny saved is a penny earned".

From the Banks of the Roubidoux!

Dear Citizens,

Summer has arrived. The City staff is busy with many projects. Because we have had to deal with FEMA concerning many flood damaged areas these projects have taken awhile. The Roubidoux Springs RV Park is now open and ready for guests. We will operate without a shower house facility for a short time, but plan to install a moveable bathhouse facility there. The fencing around the County Annex property has been repaired and the baseball fields will be moved shortly to the old baseball field area behind the County Annex. We plan to build two new baseball fields there and make the old ball field area into soccer fields. Our Park Board is working hard to bring games back to our community.

Groundbreaking for the new Roubidoux Park Stage has taken place, as we begin a project to provide a central location for our festivals and events in the Main Park area. We hope to have it completed by Frogtober Fest in October. The Cinema project continues and the B & B family has announced an August opening. The infrastructure to the facility has been completed and we continue to work on installing a fifth electric feeder line there to provide reliable electricity for the Ichord area.

The downtown DREAM initiative is coming to a close. Recently, we received a comprehensive look at financing options to improve the downtown area. We should shortly receive a final Comprehensive Plan for revitalizing the Waynesville Square. We also will begin a project of updating directional signage in the downtown area this year.

The City Council amended our budget for this fiscal year by adding several projects and accounting for approximately $136,000 received from FEMA for flood damage and mitigation projects. Our budget is now $18 million and under state law must be balanced. At mid-year we always adjust our budget in order to do that. We have fund balances of over $4.3 million, with over $1.4 million in restricted accounts and over $1.84 million in reserve and savings accounts. We have begun our annual audit process and have received a preliminary report. Highlights of the draft audit include: "The assets of the City on December 31, 2013 exceeded its liabilities by $15.6 million." "Total long-term liabilities of the City decreased by $855,622 during the nine month period ending December 31, 2013." and "The total net position of the City increased by $788,723 during the last fiscal year." The City has a positive cash flow.

Preston Kramer, our regional MoDOT engineer, attended our June council meeting to discuss the August 5th election and the issue of Amendment 7, a 3/4 cent sales tax for transportation, which has a ten year sunset attached. This tax is a bipartisan effort by both Missouri legislative houses to improve our highway and transportation infrastructure, as gasoline taxes and funds continue to dwindle because of increased mileage on new cars. Our roads and bridges need attention. They are crumbling. A comprehensive list of projects promised to be completed under this tax are listed on the MoDOT website. Several projects for Pulaski County were listed. Replacement of the bridge on Highway 7, a signalized interchange at the Hunter's Point area and the completion of the sidewalk project in West Waynesville and up Old H Highway to the High School. Kramer also discussed the traffic issues at Ichord and G. W. Lane St. MoDOT is investigating adding a dedicated right turn lane as you exit off the ramp onto Ichord. This would allow traffic to the High School to continue and not back up onto the interstate ramp. They have also added several seconds to the light there in an effort to move more traffic. He also announced that along with the three lane project from the I Bank to T Highway, that the rest of Historic 66 to Buckhorn will be resurfaced at the same time. That project will begin in earnest in 2015. Remember, it is a cost share project between the City and MoDOT.

Being mayor can be fun sometimes and I have been taking advantage of that this summer. I have hosted the Cherokee Bike Riders, "Remember the Removal", in Laughlin Park at our new Trail of Tears site. I welcomed a group of International Students from Fort Wood to the downtown area and also, led a tour through the City Hall. In June, I welcomed, along with the Tourism Team, a group of Czech Route 66 motorcyclists, we toured downtown and had lunch at Hopper's. They were shooting a promotional film to be used in Europe and Waynesville will be part of it. In July, I will go to Huntsville, Alabama, to officially invite the National Speleological Society to Waynesville for their annual convention of Cavers in July of 2015. We expect over 1500 people to visit our community during that time, as they explore the Cave State. It is fun telling people about our town and fun to meet so many interesting people.

Enjoy the summer! Remember Old Settlers' Day and the YMCA's Field of Heroes on July 26th. Remember SHOP LOCAL!

From the banks of the Roubidoux,

Luge Hardman
Mayor of Waynesville
