I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day Weekend
as we remember those that gave the ultimate sacrifice to
protect the Freedoms that we enjoy today. I was honored
to lay a wreath at two cemeteries and attended the ceremony
at the Veterans' Cemetery. It was a busy but a great day
to pause and remember.
On 27 May, we had our annual Eggs and Issues
luncheon. The latest issues concerning our state legislature
was provided by Senator Dan Brown, Representative Steve
Lynch and Representative Robert Ross. Lots of information
was provided to a large group of attendees. Thanks to them
for what they do for our region in Jefferson City. The event
was hosted by Fort Wood Hotels, sponsored by Century Link
and catered by Andy's 417. Thanks to these folks for making
this another great event.
With Memorial Day behind us, we begin the
Summer season. Summer is always a busy time of year for
everyone including the Chamber. Stay involved in the local
area. Perhaps even plan a weekend that involves exploring
our area. There are so many things to do from outdoor events,
a great aquatic park, museums, and shopping or just enjoying
many of our fine restaurants.
You can find almost everything you need from
our Chamber members that have their businesses located in
our Community. Dollars you spend locally stay local, which
allows the Community to continue to grow and prosper. The
quality of goods and services that are available in our
Community cannot be beat anywhere in the State.
So Remember---Shop Local-It's All Here!
As always, I ask each of you to make a difference
and stay active in the community and continue to work as
a Team. It is going to take a Team approach and effort for
us to be successful in the coming months and years. As we
continue to move forward in 2015, we need to stand united
in our community endeavors, whether that is in business,
volunteer work, support of this area and the military.
As always please feel free to contact me if
the Chamber can be of any assistance to you.

Leadership Pulaski County from an Ambassadors
point of view
The Waynesville-St. Robert Chamber of Commerce
and the Ambassadors Club are excited to announce the upcoming
4th class enrollment for Leadership Pulaski County (LPC).
LPC is a community based leadership program designed to
identify, educate and develop leaders. The goal of LPC
is to identify community leaders, expand leadership potential
of participants by increasing their knowledge of Pulaski
County, as well as connect current and potential leaders
by improving communication.
As an Ambassador, Business leader, community
member, and graduate of the 1st class from LPC, I know
for a fact that this program works and is an important
component in preparing community leaders to reach their
fullest potential. There is no other program available
in this area that actually brings together participants
from local businesses, non profit organizations, government
entities and military groups and provides the opportunities
to network with a great bunch of people in your own class
while also providing specific tools and training needed
to become better leaders and better community members.
I enrolled in the Inaugural LPC class of
2012-2013 because I knew that participating in this program
would give me the foundation and the knowledge that I
needed to become not only a better leader but a better
follower. Having moved to Waynesville-St Robert from "somewhere
else" I wanted to make sure that I fully educated
myself on all things state, city, and Pulaski County related
in order to find the right fit for myself and my family
and find the right people that I could follow and work
alongside to be successful in my career as a General Manager
at a local hotel.
Ultimately, I got to make a lot of new friends
in my fellow classmates, build better relationships with
local organizations that we visited, gained a better understanding
of how the military and government entities operated,
and best of all
got to serve a local organization
doing great volunteer work in my own community. I highly
recommend LPC to any and all persons who are looking to
help themselves and their communities continue to grow
onwards and upwards.

at 573-336-5121 or email@example.com

June 20th is an action packed day in Pulaski County USA!
The day starts off early with the Marine Volkslauf, the USO
Motorcycle ride, Route 66 Freedom Fest and Rockapalooza. While
you are out enjoying all these great events, be sure to watch
for the Great American Race that will be driving along Pulaski's
33 miles of Route 66. This year the 9 day event follows Historic
Route 66 from Kirkwood Mo to Santa Monica, CA. The Great Race
is an antique, vintage, and collector car competitive controlled-speed
endurance road rally on public highways. It is not a test
of top speed. It is a test of a driver/navigator team's ability
to follow precise course instructions and the car's (and team's)
ability to endure on a cross-country trip. The course instructions
require the competing teams to drive at or below the posted
speed limits at all times. There are 100 teams from across
the globe, watch for cars such as the 1915 Hudson 6-4019,
70 Jaguar XKE and 1927 Bugatti Tribute! For more information
about the Great American Race visit www.greatrace.com.

business and industry are looking at communities there are
several factors used to select a community. The two most frequently
asked questions are: What available sites and buildings exist
in your community and what is the skill level of your workforce.
The Pulaski County Growth Alliance maintains on their web
page available buildings and sites. This information is entered
on a system called Location One, a regional web site that
hosts buildings and sites in several Midwest states. There
is no charge to have a building or site listed on Location
Location One is looked at by site selectors for business
and industry. If you have a site or building to lease or sale
contact me and I will post.
The Pulaski County Growth Alliance is also working on the
certification of the labor force in Pulaski County. In July
2014 an application was submitted for Pulaski County to be
a Work Ready Community. To obtain certification goals were
set by the National Career Readiness Organization. The unit
of measurement for skill level is done by use of American
Career Testing (ACT). The assessment is based on three areas,
applied mathematics locating information, and reading information.
The assessment has four levels of proficiency: Platinum,
Gold, Silver, and Bronze. The ACT NCRC is widely used by employers
nationwide. Employers and human resource professionals use
ACT NCRC as a tool for selection of hiring, training, or promotion
decisions. If you are an employer the Pulaski County Growth
Alliance needs your help. As part of the certification process
we need 43 employers to recognize this program. Please go
to web site http://workreadycommunities.org/business/form.
This will take about one minute of your time. As we look to
diversify our economic base this certification is extremely

The new City Council has been seated in Waynesville
and the first agenda was full of projects for the coming
year. We have seated the following new members to the Council:
Alan Clark from Ward 3, Anne Roach from Ward 2, and Kitty
McKelvey from Ward 1. Mike France returns representing Ward
4 and was elected Mayor pro Tem.
Last month the City received notice that our S & P Bond
Rating is stable at an "A". This is great news
for the City, as we have several bond issues and finance
packages that support the many infrastructure projects we
are working on in the City and this helps to keep our interest
rates lower. A rating of "A" for a city of our
population is an achievement and we will work hard to maintain
We also have received positive information
from the Department of Natural Resources concerning a recent
inspection of our Waste Water Plant. We are proud to report
that our plant has passed all tests and exceeded all of
the factors that are measured in water quality standards
for Missouri. The multi-million dollar investment in our
Waste Water Plant several years ago continues to pay dividends
to the citizens by improving the water quality in the Roubidoux
The City approved an agreement with Fort Leonard
Wood to provide animal shelter services on post. This partnership
is an important step in creating more cost saving programs
for the Department of Defense and helps in the continuing
positive relationship with our neighbor. And with the recent
agreement between St. Robert and Waynesville, the Waynesville
Animal Shelter will now be home to the entire community's
The Council has approved plans to name the
drive to the new Municipal Center in honor of Councilwoman
Diana Stanford. Stanford Drive will be unveiled at a later
date. Plans were also adopted to name the new streets in
the Industrial Park after the communities which were displaced
in 1940-41 with the building of Fort Leonard Wood. The main
street will be Tribune, with adjacent streets named Bloodland,
Wharton, Cookville and Palace.
The flood mitigation work in Mitchell Creek
continues. With permission from the Corps of Engineers the
City began removing debris, trees, limbs and trash from
the area. Of the 71 property owners along the creek, 23
owners have given permission to work along their property
lines, which means we aren't able to access all areas of
the creek bed. Workers have removed 320 tons of debris,
gravel, fallen trees and have stabilized the bank in key
areas. Workers have removed a garage that had washed downstream
and lodged in a channel of the creek. The City has performed
over $20,000 in equipment, labor and materials and we will
continue to work on this important issue, as we are able.
Remember Freedom Fest on June 20 on the Square.
The USO Freedom Riders will arrive around 1:30 and it is
always a sight to see. We continue to plan for a Trail of
Tears dedication on June 19th at 9:00 am in Laughlin Park.
The Cherokee "Remember the Removal" Bike Riders
should be present for the ceremony.
We also plan a dedication for the Roubidoux
Park Stage on July 11th , from 3-5 in the afternoon, with
a "Jazz in the Park" celebration, featuring the
Army Band and the WHS Jazz Band. Watch for details. Remember
to shop local! Have a great end of the school year!
