    Hello Everyone,

    I do hope Halloween was not too scary. More frightening yet, November is here and 2011 is almost over!

    We had an awesome turnout for the Alaska Airline Business After Hours. Thanks to the entire Alaska Airlines Crew for such a fun event! Congratulations to Anne for winning the round trip airline tickets. It pays to be a member of your Chamber of Commerce!

    On October 22nd, the Chamber hosted the Coast Guard Appreciation Event, sponsored by KeyBank and BP. This was also a very well attended event and a great time was had by all! Tom Quass was very entertaining as our emcee! Dinner was "A Taste of Kodiak" which consisted of a delicious sampling from a wide variety of Kodiak restaurants and caterers. This was an event to say Thank You to the U.S. Coast Guard here in Kodiak and we do THANK YOU!

     

    We would like to say Congratulations to Midtown Auto for their shiny new building located on Mill Bay Road. Join them for their Grand Opening Celebration on Thursday, November 10th from 11am to noon.

    The November Business After Hours will be hosted by the Alutiiq Museum on Friday, November 18th from 5:30 to 7:30pm. This is very exciting as this will be the first BAH at the Museum. You'll enjoy door prizes, split the pot, and refreshments by Monk's Rock. I look forward to seeing you all there!

    Please tune in on your TV or radio for the annual Rotary Telethon this weekend, November 11th and 12th. This is a worthwhile fundraiser for our community and all money raised goes back into our community!

    Welcome new Associate Member, Judy Fulp!

    The weekend of December 9th and 10th will be full of Chamber events. GCI will be hosting Business After Hours on December 9th and the Chamber will host a Member Appreciation party at Henry's Great Alaska Restaurant on December 10th. Stay tuned for more details!

    We are YOUR Chamber of Commerce so let us know what you would like from your Chamber!
