Magic in McDonald County!
This past year has been a tremendous one for the Chamber of Commerce. We wish that we could recap every single second of it. Today there are 2 stories that we’d like to share with each of you … hopefully you share it with your friends too!
Last week we received a community grant from Walmart Pineville – Commercial Ln for $1,000 to better our community. Beau Winkley is the store manager & not only did he help us pursue & receive this grant, he also has donated a 60 inch TV to be used for visual display at the Chamber’s Office in Pineville. We sometimes use it to listen to music too .. Thank you Walmart for all that you’ve done for us.
Last week at our Board of Directors meeting, we were called to assist with a food drive for the backpack program in McDonald County for the schools. I am pleased to share that we have received a $500 donation from Mcdonald County Telephone Company. This contribution will go far helping to feed our children over the Christmas Break.
We will be working to collect food items or cash donations until Wednesday. If you would like to help us, just reach out in the comments below.

The ending of 2018 has been such a magical experience. We all look forward to continuing to “Connect our County” in 2019. If you haven’t made it to one of our Chamber Meetings, our first one for January will be held on January 9th, 2019.
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to each of you!
