Vernon Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1921 tnd never in its history, until The Flaming Pit management acted, had a new buisness become a chamber member here prior to actually opening its door to the public.

However, we are happy to join immediately and we look forward with pleasure to a happ y association." The Flaming Pit, according to Reis, is nearing an opening date, probably before January ends. The Flaming Pit membership was the T7th new member recorded at the chamber of com- rr.erce in 1968, and leaves the chamber with a firm membership of more than 400 and more than 800 individual member's, the highest in its 47 year his- lory. Other Illinois Flaming Pit restaurants are located in Edwardsville and Springfield, with several planned for Chicago and one in Peoria,. There are six Flaming Pit restaurants in St. Louis.
