July 20, 2007

I apologize to those who were in attendance at the Merchant meeting on July 19, 2007 held at the Speedway
Library for my comments regarding the Speedway Chamber of Commerce.

My comments were off the cuff and uncalled for. There is no excuse for my comment to imply that the Chamber is

lacking when I am the one who is lacking by not attending Chamber meetings.

I have written a letter of apology to the Chamber and I hope that I have not tainted the Chamber's
reputation in any way.

I hope that the other merchants of Speedway will consider joining the Chamber of Commerce as
well as the Merchants Association to help promote the business of Speedway in a positive light.

With Sincere Regrets,

Mark E Lamb
