There are many things one may claim to their fame, but only a handful of people can say they have been Chairman of the Licking County Chamber of Commerce and a few others can say they have dressed up in a Ground Hog suit at 5:30am to entertain people who are missing their coffee.
Kurt due to his personality, skill of making people feel good about themselves and knowledge of the local business climate led a meeting today without the normal podium and a more formal atmosphere. From his introductory monologue, top ten list of Licking County, interviewing three CEOs, introducing a pogo stick-jump roping boy and holding a man-eating python around his neck, Kurt kept the event on pace and on time.
If it had been any other person leading the Chamber, they could not have pulled this format off with such a success.
Cheri Hottinger, Lois Ridgley, Kim Lust, Dave Hardy, Mike McDonald, Tom Marcelain and Barbara Doan are known as the "Ground Hog Committee" are proud of you Kurt!
Only two things were missing today: Coffee and Kurt's Red Wings
