The Web site for the Mammoth Spring Chamber of Commerce has been updated and is up and running, according to Chamber President Glynda Pryor.
The site offers a list of chamber members and their contact information, as well as a list of local restaurants and local government. A calender of events is also posted on the Web site. The address for the Web site is www.mammothspringchamber.org.
Pryor also said cookbooks seem to be selling well. She said within the last week the chamber was able to sell $270 worth of cookbooks.
The chamber agreed to try to sell the cookbooks at the Mammoth Spring reunion in August.
The chamber is trying to create a local business directory that people can attach to their refrigerators so they can have the contact information in a moment's notice. These businesses will be businesses that are recommended by members of the chamber.
"Tourism Day went really well at the park," Pryor said. She said there were approximately 500 visitors. A family camping package was given away at the event, as well.
The Solemn Ole Judge Day Play will be the next Chamber event. The play is set for Sept. 4. Joan Baker of the play committee said preparations for the play have begun. "It's going pretty good, but we need people to be in the play," Baker said. "So, if there are any volunteers, come right ahead. We'll take you in any time."
Pryor said the chamber is trying to update the audio equipment for the event. She said the chamber will try to get some more microphones, lights and other equipment. The chamber agreed to allow the play committee to spend up to $400 to purchase the equipment needed.
Pryor said in the last meeting, Ron Cornelius informed the chamber that West Plains will not be having a fireworks display this year.
"That may increase what Thayer gets (for their fireworks display)," Pryor said.
The chamber decided to donate $300 to the fireworks at Thayer this year.
Pryor informed the chamber that a new storage space might be needed to store some items the city owns. Currently, these items are being stored in the basement below the Radio Shack on Main Street. Pryor said the people who operate the Radio Shack are now trying to sell their business. If they are able to sell it, the city might have to find a new place to keep the items if the new owner does not want them there.
"We want it to be in town. We want it to be accessible and protected from the elements," Pryor said. "It doesn't need to be heated or air conditioned or anything like that."
Stephanie Pierce gave the treasury report. She said the May balance for the chamber is $9,048.83.
The next Mammoth Spring Chamber of Commerce meeting will be July 9 at noon at Hog Wild Pizza.
