If you’re standing on main street and see a ball of fire swish by, it might be Dell Davis, our high energy President/CEO at the Claremore Chamber of Commerce.
Right now Dell is working full speed on the 34th annual Bluegrass and chili festival to be held here at the Claremore Expo September 5-6 -7. Dell has worked on all these 34 of these festivals and attended all but one when she had the lame excuse of a shattered kneecap and twins being born the very next day!
Dell is a relative newcomer to Claremore, having arrived only forty years ago in 1973.
At her last job with Downtown Tulsa Unlimited, Dell was in charge of the PSO Christmas Parade of Lights.
Now Dell only does one Parade in Claremore (Christmas) and even that, she says, “scares her to death” because of the many safety issues.
These days the Chamber has new directions such as Legislative days at the state capital, various candidate forums, and several Expo events including Lady’s Lifestyle and Outdoor Sporting Shows. She feels these shows are particularly valuable because they allow Chamber members a venue to showcase their wares.
