   The Chamber almost met the fundraising goal for the downtown holiday decorations at the Ace Hardware open house with a gun raffle and food sales.

   Lisa Jourdan from Ekalaka contacted the Chamber earlier this year about an expedition map of the area for visitors and people attending the Sturgis Rally. Director Nicole Schuler and Mona Madler, SMART Director, are helping Jourdan with the map. It will include landmarks, points of interest, town amenities, etc. Visit Southeast Montana awarded a grant for the project.

   The Chamber is scheduling the Funflatables and entertainment for the Fall Festival, but are needing donors to fund the efforts.

   Business Flamingo Flocking will begin next week. Proceeds will go towards downtown Christmas lighting and/or scholarships.

   Reports were received from Mona Madler, SMART; Karol Zachmann, Fallon Medical Complex/Friends of FMC; and Deb Ranum, Commission.

   The next Chamber meeting will be at noon Thursday, June 4, at Thee Garage.
