Chamber Volunteer Week

The week of August 18 to 22, 2014 was the third Waynesville-St. Robert Chamber of Commerce Volunteer Appreciation Week. The Chamber would like to recognize and thank all of the volunteers that contribute to the success of the Chamber throughout the year as well as the businesses that support their volunteer efforts. Each day of Volunteer Appreciation Week was dedicated to recognizing one of the five volunteer groups that make up the Chamber's volunteers: Chamber Ambassadors Club, Chamber Board of Directors, Economic Development Committee, Governmental & Military Affairs Committee, and CHOICES program presenters.

The Chamber distributed fliers to all of the local Chamber member businesses who employ a Chamber volunteer to display during the week. These fliers demonstrate and recognize the business' commitment to the Chamber and the success of the business community. Volunteer Appreciation Week culminated with a special volunteer recognition luncheon sponsored by Sellers-Sexton Ford-Lincoln-Mazda on Friday, August 22nd. Click here to see video and pictures from the recognition luncheon.

Featured Business

Mercy Clinic is proud to be celebrating 25 years of serving the Pulaski County area. We continue our Foundress Catherine McAuley's commitment to provide excellence in healthcare to all who need it.

We currently have 9 full time providers who provide care 83 hours a week. We have visiting surgeons, cardiologists for adults and pediatrics, orthopedics, OB/Gyn, and podiatry. On campus we also have Therapy Services, Home Medical Supplies and we are home to LIfe Line 2 helicopter which is an extension of care from the Mercy Hospital in Springfield. We also have monthly visits from Mercy's wellness van that provides mammograms and other health services to our patients.

As Mercy Clinic-St. Robert physicians and coworkers proudly pause to celebrate 25 years they also renew their commitment to excellent healthcare to our patients and their families.

Hello. I hope all had a very nice and safe Labor Day weekend. Another month has come and gone and with the new month comes some important news. School is back in session for the year. I would like to wish all our students the very best of luck in the new school year. For all of us, please be careful as you enter our school zones. Watch your speed and look out for our children. Also, pay careful attention as you approach or follow a school bus. Let's keep our children safe.

The SOP has tallied all the responses to the SPEA that used SOP's website to send e-mailed letters or sign our petition. The SOP calculated that 4,134 citizens submitted letters, emails, and signed the petition to the Army Environmental Command (AEC) by the August 25 deadline. Those citizens submitted 2,255 letters and 1,879 citizens signed the petition. These numbers do not take into account the emails and letters that were sent directly to the Army by individuals. The response this year is roughly twice the comments received by the Army from the region last year in the 2013 PEA comment period.

My personal thanks to all our Chamber members who took part in this great effort to assist in keeping our business communities strong, viable and moving forward. As I stated at our volunteer luncheon, it will continue to take all of us, working together, to continue doing great things for our communities and the Ozarks region.

Don't forget about our Fireball Run which starts at the end of this month and will arrive in Waynesville on October 2nd. We all need to be out at the "finish line" when they come to town and cheer all of them on, especially Cecilia Murray and Steve Lynch. The focus of the Run is about finding missing children. A great focus and we need to be there to show our support. Plus, the forty teams will be staying and shopping in our communities! A Win-Win for us all.

This will wrap up another note for this month. Until next time, let's all Move Forward, United.

It all kicks off with the frogs getting ready to race during the Frogtober Fest at the Waynesville City Park on October 4th. Then the next Friday, the Community Pride Night at the Waynesville High School Homecoming football game on the 10th. We will celebrate a black and orange pride day with the Homecoming Parade in the afternoon and then everyone will join us for a tailgate party like never before!

Chamber is starting to work on our 2015 Calendar of Events. Don't forget to send in your community calendars as soon as you can. It helps prevent multiple events on the same day.

Good Things Come In Threes- Networking at the Chamber Social
Working together, we strengthen our business community.

The evening's sponsor Citizens Mortgage Company, invited members of the 2015 National Speleological Society's Convention Planning Team as their honorary guests. The 2015 Convention will be held in Waynesville, MO. The special guests were introduced to the membership while the cavers were able to share the 2015 convention planning information with the attendees. Joe Nicolussi, Convention Chairperson said there will be "typically 1200-1500 cavers that attend the annual week-long convention" and the planning team is "going to make this convention stand out from the others. The last NSS Convention in Missouri was held in 1997 in Sullivan." The NSS Convention is the annual gathering place for a myriad of education, research and recreational activities.

What is My Business Worth?

There are several situations where establishing a value of your business may be important.
An accurate, up to date financial statement is only the first step in setting the value of a business. One must thoroughly analyze the past several years of business operations, and how will your business project in the future. Is my business in an industry that will be viable over the long haul?

Most people look to the Fair Market Value of a business, defined by the Internal Revenue Service as "the price at which the property would change hands between a willing buyer and willing seller when the former is not under any compulsion to buy and the latter is not under any compulsion to sell,both parties having reasonable knowledge of relevant facts".
In other words what a buyer and seller agree to without pressure!

There are several ways to determine a fair and equitable price for the sale of a business. Capitalized Earning Approach, this is the return on the investment expected by an investor. Cash Flow Method; a method usually used when attempting to determine how much of a loan the cash flow of the business will support. Tangible Assets Method, this method values the business by the tangible assets. Value of Business's Goodwill, this is based on the reputation and expected customer loyalty. Sometimes referred to as "clear blue sky!" and Comparison Approach, this method uses comparable business's that have sold to determine a value usually building and real estate are valued this way.

If you are not sure how which way is best to value your business contact a professional. There are professional appraisers who can assist you to determine which approach fits your situation. The National Association of Certified Valuation Analysts ( offers a free directory to help you find a business valuation expert who specializes in your particular situation. I also, recommend you check with the Pulaski County Board of Realtors and local Real Estate Agents.

From the Banks of the Roubidoux!

The hot days of summer have arrived and school is back in session. This year is moving too quickly. Our August City Council meeting was a busy one. Mayor pro Tem Mike France led the meeting, as I have been very busy with my husband's health issues.

Among the items of business were: The Council approved the final plat for Briar Pointe subdivision. After much discussion in committee and research by our staff, the Council also, unanimously, voted to remove fluoride from our City water system. The Council also set the Ad Valorem Property Tax Rates for the City, after a public hearing and the tax rate will increase from .5370 to .5596 per $100 assessed valuation. A grant for a Master Plan for the Regional Airport was supported, as this is an important aspect of the recent SPEA study by the Army. We continue to support the growth of our regional airport. Ralph Muxlow was reappointed as City Counselor and Attorney.

The City's budget is 58% complete and net income is a positive
$248,573. Our year to date cash flow has been stable and the City has
fund balances of over $4.3 million in reserve and restricted accounts.
The City also received our independent audit, which was completed by KPM
CPA firm. The City received a "Clean Audit" with no major findings.
Impacting this audit was the change in our fiscal year, moving it to
January 1-December 31, which meant that this audit was a nine month
audit instead of a twelve month one. Highlights of the audit include:

* the total net position of the City increased by $810,269.
* total liabilities of the City decreased by $2,039,628.
* the City experienced a significant flood that severely impacted the city and the budget.

Ribbon Cutting for Juice Plus - September 8th at 10 a.m. at the Chamber office, 137 St. Robert Blvd., Ste. B in St. Robert.

Chamber Luncheon - September 10th at 11:45 a.m. at the Hampton Inn, Andy's 417 catering. Our sponsor will be Mercy Clinic - St. Robert. Please contact the Chamber Office to RSVP before 9:00 a.m. Tuesday, September 9th.

**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.

Ribbon Cutting for First State Bank - September 26th at 10 a.m. to celebrate their new building grand opening at 926 Old Rt. 66 in St. Robert.
