It means a lot when we hear a business has served our community for a long time.  A lot of them come and go, but we have to tip our hats, and often give our business to those who are still there after a long time.  But 100 years?  Wow!   This February, the Battle Creek Chamber of Commerce will recognize their centennial members.  Any guesses as to who they might be?

The Battle Creek Chamber celebrates 107 years this year.  Executive Director Kara Beer was a guest on the 95.3 WBCK Morning Show with Tim Collins on Monday, and gave us the whole list of the 100-year continuous members..
