Today is December 23, 2009, just two days away from celebrating our Lord's birth. I want to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous new year. Remember this time as a time to thank the good Lord for sending his son to earth to be born, live and die a horrible death for all of us and for our sins. He loves YOU that much! Amazing.
This is the time of year that we show our appreciate to those we love and care for often with gifts. Not only to show our appreciation to those who work for us, but also to support the Champaign County Chamber of Commerce and local businesses in the Urbana/Champaign County area, we are giving our employees Chamber checks. There is a long list of businesses who honor those checks from restaurants, groceries, gift shops, hardwares and much more! They make great gifts, and are available at the Chamber office. By shopping in your local community instead of out of town or on the Internet, you are making sure your tax dollars are staying in your community for local emergency and government services and entities. Keep this in mind as you look for those last minute gifts. A few years ago I shopped almost entirely on the Internet. This year I shopped almost entirely in my local community. Shop local! The businesses appreciate it.
Thank you for spending time to read my blog post(s) and for being a part of Yoder Concrete Construction, LLC in one way or another. May you stay safe & healthy and may God bless you and your family this Christmas season and upcoming year. Merry Christmas!
