 The third seminar was Buchroeders:
 "Luxury Buying Experience, Unbeatable Jewelry Prices" Founded in 1896, Buchroeders has been a staple in Columbia and the premiere diamond engagement ring destination in Mid-Missouri.

 The last and final seminar this week is Kilgore's Respiratory Center:
"Snoring Is No Joke" Does anyone you know snore so loud it keeps you awake? Have you ever said "they snore like a freight train" or "sounds like a chain saw when they sleep"? Then come visit with the staff at Kilgore's Respiratory Services and get more information why snoring left untreated can be serious.
