The Chamber of Commerce met Tuesday to discuss the Halloween activities, the Chamber Membership Drive and an update on the “Christmas in Barnsdall” event. The chamber has decided on a date of Dec. 14 for “Christmas in Barnsdall.” The change in date to the second weekend of the month will help accommodate participants and other surrounding communities who are also having Christmas parades on the first weekend of the month. Also on the agenda was Siggins Memorial Clinic’s Physician Assistant, Marcus Sizemore, and the new Physicians Assistant, Julie Wilson, to welcome and introduce her to the chamber and update the community on what services the clinic offers. As always, the chamber would appreciate any help you can give in planning and working these community events.
