This month, the Chamber was presented with the opportunity to host Congressman Adrian Smith. He came to town on Wednesday, August 18 and was here to speak to the public for 1 hour. This took place at the Neligh Public Library. Community members and some chamber members came to discuss some of their concerns with the congressman as well as listen to what some of his current projects are. We were grateful for the opportunity to have our businesses speak directly with our state representative!
We are thrilled for our Chamber Member, Pinnacle Bank, on their Grand Opening! After many months of work and progress, their patience paid off as they were able to celebrate the opening of the newly remodeled bank! It was a beautiful celebration with many local bank members, partners, and businesses! Congratulations to Pinnacle Bank!
Neligh is the flag day capital of the world! The city celebrated by placing marking flags of the American Flag next to the Highway by the Chamber and ED Office. The Neligh Young Men's Club also put up flags all around town. A big thank you to all the volunteers who spent the time putting up the flags to help our community celebrate!
After the help of many volunteers to clean up Rainbow Fountain Garden, Neligh-Oakdale Public School Ag. Classes came down to help replant the Garden. With their help, the whole garden was able to be planted in one day! "Shovels in hand, dirt under our nails, and plants in the ground. It all makes for a good day," said NOPS FFA Advisor Ms. Burnside.
