Cape Chamber

Each year, the chamber gives the Rush H. Limbaugh Award to an outstanding local individual who has made incredible contributions to our community. 

The Rush H. Limbaugh award recipient list reads like a veritable who’s who of Cape Girardeau. For several years, we’ve honored business leaders, mayors, philanthropists and much more. The past recipients gather each year to select the new winner. This year, Bob Neff, General Manager at Ford Groves was chosen.

Discover nature this week as freezing nights and thawing days cause maple sap to flow best.

The Maple tree is found throughout Missouri, and its leaf was the inspiration for the Canadian flag. This species varies in its leaf shapes and lobe spaces.

School children are best at identifying maple trees, as nearly every Missouri child has at one time pretended the seed pods were helicopters as they spiral down to the ground in the swirling wind.

You might see a lot of people wearing red tomorrow, and they aren’t just getting a jump on Valentine’s Day.

Because heart disease was considered “a man’s disease” but killing over half a million American women a year,  in 2004 the American Heart Association created Go Red For Women. The goal is to dispel the myths and raise awareness of heart disease & stroke as the number one killer of women. Go Red also wants  action to save more lives and was designed to empower women to take charge of their heart health.
