Don is married to Joyce (Griffen) Hart, they have five
children, twelve grandchildren and twin great grandchildren due in September. Don is very active in the community, he has been a member of the chamber for many
years and currently serves on the Board of Directors.
He and Joyce own and operate Hart Electric, Inc. in Matthews; D.J. Construction, LLC in Matthews; and Men
of Falkoff ’s and Ladies in Sikeston. In business since
1899, Falkoff ’s Mens Store was purchased in March of
2012 by Don and Joyce and the name changed to Men of
Falkoff ’s. Originally just a store for men, until April 2013
when they opened the upstairs as a ladies department
store. With the addition of the women’s clothing they
hired their daughter, Megan Parker as general manager.
With the wide selection of name brand and boutique
clothing you are sure to find what you are looking for

Has your business received an important achievement or do you have some new additions to your team? We want to know about it so that we can share the news with
other Chamber members. Submit your News Flash items here.
The Missouri Delta Medical Center benefit ball will be held
October 24th at the Sikeston Armory. Old Atlantic City is the
theme, which focuses on the height of decadence in Atlantic
City during Prohibition. Take a step back in time to the turn
of the century on the famous 1920’s boardwalk! Committee
chair heads and volunteer committee members alike are all
working diligently to design, plan, and create a night that will
be remembered for years to come. Chances are anything that
involves a bit of sparkle will surely set the tone to the celebration; the pale pink and rose gold accent themes they’re using
will definitely deliver. You can almost guarantee that there will
be Charleston dancing fun at some point! See for yourself on
October 24th, 2015 at the Sikeston Armory!
Next weekend, Historic Downtown Sikeston hosts a new and
exciting event. Tributary Film Festival, July 10-11th, invites
movie lovers to various venues to watch films with ties to our
region. Beginning Friday night, we have a series of faturelength movies, short films, lectures, and Q&A’s lined up inside
businesses downtown. We hope the weekend brings film lovers
from around the delta into our city. Join us Friday, July 10th
at 7 PM when “Love Chronicles” kicks off the event at Anchor
Church. Single movie attendance costs $5 and all-access passes
get you into every event for $15. Grab some popcorn, sit back,
and enjoy the finest independent films our region has to offer!

community development
get involved
In an effort to get the community involved with the Sikeston Jaycee Bootheel Rodeo, the Sikeston Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) would like businesses in the area to help host and contribute to the tourism that is associated with
the Rodeo. Having a sale during Rodeo week or simply decorating your store front will assist in getting visitors out and
about in our community, not just on the grounds. If you own a business around town get involved and get excited for
Rodeo. Whether it is a special or promotion for Rodeo goers, having employees wear rodeo gear, a discount for shoppers that come in wearing Rodeo merchandise, or simply decorate your store front or lobby, somehow let people know
you support the Rodeo. Proudly show your support for our community by showing your support for the Sikeston Jaycee
Bootheel Rodeo. With an estimated 40-59,000 visitors to our community during the week, put your best boot, or foot forward and keep them coming back for our warm local welcome. After all, Sikeston is “where southern hospitality begins.”
