Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Also known as St. Paddy’s Day, today is the day we celebrate the patron saint of Ireland. The Irish holiday is a global phenomenon and was first made an official Christian feast day in the early 17th century. It is celebrated by the Catholic church, the Anglican Communion, the Eastern Orthodox Church, and the Lutheran Church. St. Patrick’s Day is always on March 17, the supposed date of his death. It originally celebrated the arrival of Christianity in Ireland in the 5th century by Roman Britains. However, in modern times it has taken on a more secular tone.

Published: Wednesday, December 21, 2016

According to Wikipedia, "a committee is a body of one or more persons that is subordinate to a deliberative assembly. Usually, the assembly sends matters into a committee as a way to explore them more fully than would be possible if the assembly itself were considering them. Committees may have different functions and the type of work that each committee does would depend on the type of organization and its needs."

Prior to starting with the Kearney Chamber, the Chamber Board of Directors explained that we have an excellent staff that really love their job and care about the Kearney Community. This past weekend, I witnessed and would like to showcase the level of commitment and compassion of our Chamber team.  On October 1st, The Kearney Area Chamber of Commerce held our third annual Oktoberfest.  The event can be classified as a great success but what I feel is most impressive is what occurred behind the scenes.

In Honor of Oktoberfest: How To Pour Beer Like A German

We tapped a real live German — Sylvester Schneider, owner of German bar and restaurantZum Schneiderin New York's Alphabet City, and expert pourer and drinker of beer — to show us how it's done correctly.
