Luncheon to focus on counterfeit money

Tuesday, April 2, 2013

The Cassville Area Chamber of Commerce will partner with the Cassville Police Department during the chamber's second quarterly luncheon of 2013. The event, which will offer information on detecting counterfeit money, will be held at the Barry County Museum on Highway 112 south of Cassville at noon on Tuesday, April 9.

"We would like to present this program to our business community to make them more aware of items to look for on paper currency to detect counterfeit bills," said Cassville Police Chief Dana Kammerlohr. "We have been advised by Secret Service that the marker pen is not a reliable source for detecting counterfeit bills."

In addition to the informational presentation, luncheon attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy a delicious lunch catered by the BBQ Station.

"This is a great educational opportunity for our businesses," said Mindi Artherton, chamber executive director. "Unfortunately, in today's society there are dishonest people who may try to use counterfeit money in their business transactions.

"I want our chamber members to be prepared and to know what to look for," continued Artherton. "I would hate for a business to be taken advantage of in this way. I am so excited to have Chief Kammerlohr and her staff to help educate us on matters such as this."

The quarterly luncheon event will cost $8 per person.

To register for the event, call Artherton at 847-2814 or email her at chamber@cassville.com. The registration deadline is Friday, April 5.
