Buddy Bear at the July Membership Breakfast

Buddy Bear Here: Wow! I had a great time at the Pigeon Forge Chamber of Commerce membership Breakfast yesterday! So many of my friends from the Greater Pigeon Forge and Smoky Mountains areas came to visit.

Before the main speaker gave her presentation, Patsy Cline sang! Carol Glass-Cooper of the New Patsy Cline Tribute Theatre in Pigeon Forge sang, “Sweet Dreams” just like Patsy Cline. When I closed my eyes, it was just like Patsy was still here!

Ramay Winchester with the Tennessee Economic and Community Development gave an inspirational take on Customer Service. My favorite part of her presentation was the new saying everyone is using in the office: “Just Give Them the Pickle!” The Chamber staff now have jars of pickles on their desks!

Check out some of our pictures below. I can’t wait for the next Chamber membership breakfast in August. See you soon! I am off to eat, sleep and play in the Smokies. Where in the Forge should I go next?
