Gerken and Associates is having an open house and ribbon cutting tomorrow.
Ribbon cuttings happen so often an area newspaper decided to stop covering them. The sheer frequency and lack of return on investment for the paper provides little incentive.
Charlie Gerken never fails to attend ribbon cuttings - no matter how small or seemingly insignificant they appear. For the people establishing a business in our town - it's a very big deal.
As much support as Charlie's given just by showing up at every chance to celebrate new families taking a chance on Branson it's certain the event will be well attended.
Good times and good friends.
As for me, I've committed to attending as many of these as possible. It's a small token of support that means a lot.
