Urban Meyer to Attend Perry County Chamber Breakfast


PERRY COUNTY, Ohio – An annual event held in an effort to educate
the community and raise funds to help support local businesses is
approaching in Perry County. The 5th Annual Perry County
Chamber of Commerce Groundhog Breakfast will be held on Friday,
January 31 at Sheridan High School. Doors open at 5:45 AM and former
OSU Head Football Coach Urban Meyer will be the guest speaker. John
Ulmer, Executive Director of Perry County Chamber of Commerce, says
Meyer will arrive shortly after breakfast begins being served.

“Coach Meyer won’t
be on the program probably until about—oh, I guess 7:30…quarter
to 8 because people are going to be eating and then we’ve got some
other things to take care of as far as some awards to present;
recognizing other people. We’ve got a corporate sponsor, Mount
Perry Propane and they’re going to have a segment in there where
they can share their story and everything, too. But, we’re really
excited about it. The capacity of Sheridan High School is 450 and
we’ve got a waiting list going right now.”

Ulmer says that
while there is currently a waiting list to attend the Groundhog
Breakfast, all proceeds from ticket sales will benefit economic
growth within the community.

“It goes in to
help sponsor scholarships; help to pay for a lot of our expenses for
operating, helps us do some different programs and networking and
stuff throughout the area—and sponsor other events and activities

Tickets are $30 for
non-Chamber members and $25 for Chamber members. For more information
or to be placed on the wait list, contact the Perry County Chamber of
Commerce at 740-342-3547.
