Something from Mary

BrewDog, a Scotland based company is giving their 1,000 worldwide employees one week’s paid leave when they welcome a new puppy into their lives.

Hey, I’ve got your attention, don’t I?! Although the above statement is true… I do know I have your attention…. We could talk about perks, benefits and zero-vacation all day… but right now… let’s talk about the perks and benefits of being a member of the Hutchinson Chamber.

I have TWO new Perks and a new Project to tell you about!
