Maridon Museum chosen as Community Champion
Chamber News
Friday, June 03 2016 13:04

In 2003, the Butler County Chamber began recognizing local organizations that impact the community through a cooperative project or initiative, with the presentation of the Community Champion Award. This year’s Community Champion Award luncheon is sponsored by NexTier Bank, C. W. Howard Insurance Agency, Kenmac Rental & Sales, Butler County Tourism and Convention Bureau and designed by Minuteman Press.

Lighting, flowers and signage earned the Butler Shade Tree Commission the first inaugural award. Slippery Rock Area Development Association followed the next year for the Main Street renovations in Slippery Rock. Butler AM Rotary Club received well-deserved honors for the handicapped playground at Alameda Park and we recognized the Parking Authority of Butler for the parking deck and surface lot improvements in downtown Butler. Butler Downtown had worked for numerous years to successfully establish the “Main Street” Program and was deservedly recognized followed by the Historic Pullman Park Commission. In 2009 we rewarded the Community Health Clinic of Butler County, for establishing a visionary facility for health care. 2010 recognized the Historic Strand Theater Committee in Zelienople for their community preservation efforts and the Butler- Freeport Trail received the 2011 award. The Little Theatre Group received the 10th award in 2012 for their community involvement and service. In 2013 we recognized the community service and success of the Butler Area Public Library, in 2014 the Harmony Business Association was honored for their contributions to the area and last year we were pleased to honor the Butler County Symphony Association as a unique community asset of which we are proud.

On Wednesday, July 13, 2016, the Board of Directors and Past President’s Advisory Council of the Butler County Chamber are pleased to honor The Maridon Museum as the 14th Butler County Chamber of Commerce Community Champion Award recipient. The Maridon opened on May 8th, 2004. It is the only museum in the Western Pennsylvania region with a specific focus on Asian Art and Culture coupled with German Meissen porcelain. The museum — both the objects and the buildings that house them — is the gift of Mary Hulton Phillips. Patricia Lowry, writing in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, pronounced the Maridon a “gleaming little gem of a museum.” The Maridon Museum is a unique asset to Butler County and one of which we are very proud.

A luncheon will be held on Diamond Square at 11:30 am, followed by the award presentation and summer concert by the Butler County Symphony Orchestra. An invitation flyer is enclosed in this newsletter, and although there is no fee to attend, reservations are requested at 724.283.2222. Please join us in honoring The Maridon Museum.

 
2016 Another Milestone Year
Stan Kosciuszko, President
Friday, June 03 2016 13:07

Innovation, Partnerships, Affiliations… Success

Affiliates: Slippery Rock Business Association membership tops 100 after celebrating its 10th Anniversary, Leadership Butler County remains the premier professional development with one of the largest classes since the first graduating class of 1993, Butler Downtown is mid-way in the second successful year as an “All Volunteer” organization, Butler County Young Professionals expands their board of directors, their programs and their membership is quickly approaching 400…our new and continuing programs and affiliates more than embody our mission and serve as outreach ambassadors.

Partnerships: Our 2016 Schedule has included or will include partnerships with the Alle Kiski Strong, Beaver County, Grove City Area, Ellwood City Area, Lawrence County, Mercer Area and Pittsburgh North Chambers of Commerce, Butler County Tourism & Convention Bureau, Community Development Corporation of Butler County, Cranberry Business HUB, Butler County Community College, Slippery Rock University, Grove City College and SMC Business Councils…proof positive that working together is the most effective means of serving our community. Cooperative events included legislative and energy initiatives as well as networking and educational offerings.

Innovations: The Boards of Directors of the Butler County Chamber of Commerce and Leadership Butler County, in partnership with Butler County Community College and sponsored by NexTier Bank, coordinated a nonprofit management development certification program (additional information in this newsletter) which proved not only to be a valuable education tool but an invaluable networking tool for our nonprofit businesses. NexTier also led the way in offering Sandler Training to our membership in an innovative and convenient format, encouraging businesses to take advantage of continuing professional development. In addition, BC3 has stepped to the plate and is assisting us to provide a new venture, People@Work Symposium along with numerous business partners.

Numbers: 120 attendees at the Employee Appreciation Luncheon, Meet- N-Move Luncheons exceeding 100 participants each, energy summit and legislative breakfast attendance with similar numbers, and with the expertise of the Butler Eagle, over 7,000 Membership Directories were printed and over 6,500 hand delivered to Butler County Businesses…I would say our “stats” look great.

Once again I am proud to be your President as the Butler County Chamber of Commerce continues to break records and raise the bar of success higher than any professional organization in the region and perhaps the State. Thank you all for making this possible as together we accomplish great things.

What is a Walldog?
Member News
Monday, May 09 2016 09:33

Butler County Historical Society Presents International Walldog Meetup

The Walldogs are a group of highly skilled sign painters and mural artists from all over the globe. The Walldog Movement is quickly gaining popularity, and is a great way for small towns to boost their tourism. Imagine a “pack” of talented artists descending upon your town to paint the most beautiful murals you can imagine. Every wall that a fellow Walldog touches springs to life with images of local places, people, and products that have historic significance to each town.

“Once a year, hundreds of Walldogs gather in one lucky town or city to paint multiple murals and old-fashioned wall advertisements. This meet – or festival – is usually held during the span of 4 or 5 days ending on a Sunday. After the festival is over and the artists pack up their brushes and head home, The Walldogs leave behind beautiful, handcrafted and professionally painted murals depicting that town’s rich history.”

Butler will benefit from the creation of 10 murals while the Walldogs are here. The murals will create a walking tour of Butler and will include subjects that have helped make our county great while fueling our memories of days gone by. Lots of volunteers areneeded to successfully complete this event. Visit our website at butlerwalldogs.com, go to Registration and fill out the Volunteer form to choose an area you would like to help with. Local Artists should fill in the Artist Registration form to participate. We especially need residents to open their homes to house some of the artists while they are here. You don’t need to worry about feeding the artists since the festival committee will be taking care of all their meals. They will appreciate being able to get a shower and having a bed to sleep in! Walldogs start early and many work late into the night. Please visit the website and click on Hosting a Walldog to fill out the form to house an artist or two.

Contact Pat Collins, Executive Director, Butler County Historical Society, 123 W Diamond St. Butler, PA 16001 724.283.8116 with questions.
