True story. ... Today I had lunch with three good friends, ne of who me is our local chamber of commerce director. Every Thanksgiving, our Chamber has a Thanksgiving breakfast . Several years ago, we had the armed services choral group (airborne division) not sure the proper name, to entertain the group. A very moving and patriotic program.
We were turned down because the church group that provides the food and is paid by a local industry, uses their profit to benefit things like relay for life. The rep said that since it was a charity involved they could not do it. now this is not for the Chamber at all, just the kids making a little money serving food. the lady rep said they had to be careful of their image and appearances.
