GI Chamber Expo 2000

            More than thirty-five businesses and civic organizations displayed their wares at the ninth annual Grand Island Chamber of Commerce Business and Community Exposition, last Saturday (Oct.28), in the Bible Presbyterian Family Life Center on Love Rd. 
           It was "a good time and a good show" according to Event Committee Chairman Rod Reisdorf, who was very pleased with the event. The Chamber is doing a follow-up survey of exhibitors to see how they can improve the event according to Reisdorf.
            "The Expo was great. Quite a few (exhibitors) want to come back next year," said Chamber member and exhibitor Betty Harris of Metro Town Realty. Click here to see Betty Harris' Letter to the Editor.

            Business was brisk at all the booths, including the one for, the only source for Grand Island E-News. Editor Teddy Linenfelser, Reporter William O'Connor, and Kim Baldassare, president, were busy showing off Grand Island's newest business. Grand Island E-News was introduced to hundreds of interested people. The staff also handed out coloring contest sheets (contestants, please see rules), the GI-E-News, note pads and raffle tickets for a new 500 MHz computer (all of which are still available at 1871 Whitehaven Rd.).
