The Hollister Area Chamber of Commerce joined forces with the Branson Chamber of Commerce to celebrate the 70th Anniversary of Central Bank of Branson. Although, the festivities were dampened not only by the weather, but also limitations due to Covid-19, spirits were high as those in attendance shared in this major milestone of our long time member and community supporter, Central Bank of Branson.

(Photo courtesy of the Hollister Chamber of Commerce) Resolution to close Branson Recycle Center fails A resolution to permanently close the Branson Recycle Center was voted down by aldermen at their board meeting Tuesday night. Information had been presented to aldermen several weeks ago on the costs of the center to the city. According to the report, it would cost the City around $265,000 annually to reopen the center and operate it as before. Many individuals spoke out in opposition to the closing and therresolution was eventually voted down by all five aldermen. It was also announced that Taney County officials are looking into the possibility of taking over the program and are expected to discuss it at next week’s County Commission meeting. The original succotash recipe is one of a long-time employee whose grandmother taught how to throw together most vegetables in the garden (and then some), all presented today at the park on a grill in a 6-foot skillet. “These awards highlight the world-class offerings at Silver Dollar City,” said Brad Thomas, President of Silver Dollar City Attractions. “Our guests come from all over America’s heartland. The Silver Dollar City team strives hard every day to ensure these families can escape the concerns and worries of today to enjoy our crafts, our rides, our food, our shows and festivals.
