KidBiz 2014. This year's KidBiz is fast approaching and looks to be bigger than ever. This is a great Grand Island Chamber Program that teaches our young students how to run a business. "I love this event, the kids bring so much to this program in creativity & enthusiasm and we feel great about what we were able to teach them." Please support our kids, Saturday, June 27, 2015
Youth Ambassador Hot Dog Sale
Youth Ambassador Hot Dog Sale. This sales benefits the Chamber Youth Ambassador Program. The you Ambassadors is a mentoring program that G.I. high school students compete for. It also includes a scholarship. All funds from the sale goes to program. Our local police officers and elected officials along with community leaders come out and cook for the kids. We have a great time.
It was such a thrill to be honored by my fellow chamber directors.

The Miracle League
This is one of the best things that has happened on Grand Island. All Grand Islander's should be proud of what has been accomplished with the baseball field for the kids at Veteran's Park.

Light Up the Boulevard Parade
The Light Up the Boulevard parade was the vision of Chair, Fran McMahon. Any time Fran comes up with an idea we all know it will be great for Grand Island and we all climb on board! The parade is so much fun and kicks off the holiday season. I am happy to be one of Frans Committee helpers. Thanks Fran for all you do!
Light Up the Boulevard Parade
It's more than just a parade. Santa is in Town Hall meeting all the kids and there is hot chocolate and goodies too.
VFW Color Guard
No Citizen of the Year Award event is complete without the VFW Color Guard to present the colors and lead the pledge. These are a great bunch of guys. They take such pride in what they do and what they represent. Can't say enough about our veterans, they deserve so much more than they get. Support our Vets!
