ADAIR Band goes for 21st State Championship this weekend!!!

Community Support is so important: Downtown Columbia is decked out with the Band's Blue and Black Colors with Ribbons & Signs. Every bit helps to build spirit.

By Shamarie Claiborne

We are asking the community to get behind these children and decorate where you can. It would mean the world to them. BLUE and BLACK are the band colors - the boosters have put ribbons around the square and in some places at the schools. If you can make a sign or help in anyway the kids would be thrilled!

Pam Hancock: McDonald's, changed America's eating out habits

The story of McDonald's in a capsule was delivered by Pam Hancock at the October meeting of the Chamber. Tomorrow, a major charity supported by McDonald's will have the 6th Annual Ronald McDonald House wish List Donation Drive, 3pm-6pmCT, Thursday, October 24, 2013, at the Chamber of Commerce, 201 Burkesville Street, back parking lot. WISH LIST

By Pam Hancock
from Chamber Insights, October 2013

At age 52 when most people look toward retirement--Ray Kroc founded a company that revolutionized the food industry and changed America's eating-out habits. In 1954, he acquired franchising rights from the McDonald brothers for their San Bernardino, California-based chain of hamburger restaurants and founded McDonald's Corp. in 1955. Today, McDonald's has more than 30,000 restaurants in over 100 international markets. His belief was that he had to help individual McDonald's operators succeed in every way he could. Their success would ensure his success. His belief paid off: Today more than 80 percent of the McDonald's 13,700 U.S. restaurants are independently owned and operated by local franchisees.

We see them all the time. At a restaurant....at the grocery store...or at the gas station. For most, the thought of throwing in loose change to the jars or buckets on the countertop is minimal. But for others, they are willing to empty all pockets and a wallet based off of their first hand account or the memory of a loved one who was personally affected by tragedy and had to occupy a room at the Ronald McDonald House.

Our family, like countless others, were one of those such families who resided at the Louisville Ronald McDonald House in the fall of 2007.
