Welcome to Murdock
EMMA GROUP - Meeting
January 22, 2020, 6:00 PM
Have you heard about EMMA? EMMA is short for Elmwood Murdock Merchants Association. Elmwood Murdock Merchants Association (EMMA) is an organized group of local merchants and individuals, working together to promote economic activity and business development in the Elmwood and Murdock community.
EMMA encourages volunteerism and sponsors community events, college scholarships, and community improvement projects.
EMMA will be having their annual membership appreciation and networking night this Wednesday, January 22, at 6:00 pm at The Quonset. We encourage all current members, and anyone interested in joining or finding out more about EMMA to stop by and join us for appetizers and great conversation.
You don't have to be a business owner to be a member of EMMA.
Community members are welcome to join!
If you can’t attend that event you are welcome to come to a regular monthly meeting. EMMA meets the third Monday of each month at 7:00 pm the Elmwood Community Center. Hope to see you at an EMMA event!
(thanks to Ramona Oehlerking for the quote)
This is the week to take a break from cooking. There is the Soup Super this Friday at the Elmwood-Murdock High School, then Pancake breakfast at the Elmwood Community Center on Saturday morning.
