    Your Chamber,
Working for you…

We are going full tilt toward details for
Run Rally Rock:
The 13th Anniversary of Edgewood, The Independent, and Rich Ford.
There will be parade entry forms this year, available at the Chamber after June 15.
Don’t forget to plan your float…prizes for the best float, best theme, most fun.
Music will be playing from the stage all afternoon into the evening, and there will be demonstrations all day as well.  If your child belongs to a Karate, Gymnastic or dance group, get in touch so that they can strut their stuff at Run Ralley Rock.
Look for details for the run at Wildlife west,
the Poker Run, Brand new activities in a new location for the Family Fun area including the Dunk Tank, where we will be dunking Edgewood’s finest and most famous to raise money for a very special community
project this year.
We will be holding the Business Expo at Rich Ford, and the music stage will be there as well.
Look for a lot of activity all day.  Call for more information or if you would like to help on a committee.

running it again in an effort to stop multi tasking myself and for those who ignored the wisdom last week.
No, seriously, STOP.
Switching from task to task quickly, does not work.
In fact, changing tasks more than 10 times in a day
makes you dumber than being stoned.  When a person is stoned, their IQ drops by five points. 
 When you multitask, it drops by an average of 10 points, 15 for men, five for women (yes, men are three times as bad at multitasking than women).
note from MH…duh.

If you are a chamber member, you can leave your business cards, rack cards and flyers at the Visitors center inside the South door to the Library. Be sure to get your information over here. It’s part of your benefit as an Edgewood Chamber member! Stop by the office to see Madeline if you have any questions.
