Hillsboro chamber welcomes startups

Staff writer

New businesses were the focus of the Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce luncheon Tuesday.

Economic developer Clint Seibel introduced Marty Fent and David Vogel, two entrepreneurs advertising their companies locally.

Fent sells homemade cookies through Uncle Marty’s Cookies. He provided members with samples of chocolate chunk, peanut butter, oatmeal and snickerdoodle cookies. Fent sells his cookies at the Hillsboro farmers market on Thursdays.

Vogel runs his own startup, called Vogel Design, through which he offers help designing websites, mobile applications, logos, and photography.

Connie Isaac shared a five-minute presentation on the history of Tabor College’s Lifelong Learning program. Isaac is finishing her duties as the program’s director after more than 20 years of work, but said Tabor is looking to continue Lifelong Learning.

She said anyone interested in taking over the program is welcome to inform the college.

Seibel concluded the meeting giving a background of how Tabor College’s Bluejay Lanes came to existence. He introduced Austin Jones, a junior marketing major at Tabor who works at the bowling alley and has helped with a youth bowling league.

Though Bluejay Lanes is closed for the summer, Seibel said the alley would open on request for people who call (620) 266-2695.
