Remember Our Local Businesses During Snowmageddon

The wintry weather we have experienced in Robertson County over the last week has been magical and fun for a lot of folks...especially for our school-aged kids! I have to admit it is nice to have the weather force us to stay home, slow down and enjoy time with neighbors and family. Catching up on reading or tv shows and movies, enjoying games, playing in the snow, cleaning, fixing and organizing around the house, and even working from home if possible have been activities that have occupied those of us whose work doesn't require them to brave the elements.

Karen Shoemaker, The Credit Union for Robertson County

This year's 2017 Volunteer of the Year is Karen Shoemaker, a representative of The Credit Union for Robertson County. Karen has served for the past five years as the chair of the Robertson Education Initiative (REdI) Advisory Board.  In that capacity she has helped guide the work of REdI as we strived to build a partnership relationship between our business community and our public schools. Events and programs like Pep Rally on the Square, #ACTCounts, and Youth Leadership Robertson County would not have been successful without her support and hands on involvement. Karen has also served for three years as a co-chair of the TASTE of Robertson County competition at our annual Taste of Country festival. The TASTE competition has grown into a centerpiece for the festival during this time, attracting cooks and spectators alike to downtown Springfield for a fun competition that showcases local Robertson County food products and vendors.  Karen has become an extension of the Chamber staff, always willing to step up and chip in when needed.  For this we are honored to recognize and thank her in this small way for her dedication and love of our community and our work.
