Jewell Chamber discusses
Jim and Alice Tyler of Floral Studio 119, Mankato, were guests presenting the program for the Jewell Chamber of Commerce meeting held the evening of Feb. 9. Jim talked about the many services and types of flowers their studio offers. They do both silk and fresh arrangements as well as green plants and blooming plants. Jim makes and designs candles while wife Alice is an artist. She has several examples of her work on display at the studio. Future plans include memorial plaques and wind chimes.
Bruce Barrett, president, reported on dates for upcoming events: Easter egg hunt April 4; fishing derby May 16 at Lake Emerson; fundraiser for Fourth of July will be a potato bar March 22.
Several items were brought up during new business. Ideas for a metal farm sculpture contest. This will be presented to the Corn Show committee. A motion was made, seconded, and passed to have the chamber of commerce refinish the floors of the community center. Amber Burks asked if the chamber would be interested in hosting a city wide garage sale possibly in mid April. She volunteered to be in charge of it.
More help is needed at the Fourth of July fireworks.
