Greetings from the Chamber office!   


We are moving and a shaking here at the Chamber.  With the holidays quickly approaching  there are a couple of dates to reserve on your calendar.  The inaugural Chamber Christmas After Hours will take place on Thursday, December 5 upstairs at the Red Rooster. Also, save the date for the Christmas celebration on December 7.  Read below for more information on both of these events.


Please remember the Chamber this holiday season when you are looking for gifts to give.  Chamber Bucks are a great way to keep the money flowing in our community and make great employee thank you gifts! 

Also, if you have employee promotions, business announcements, grand openings etc.  We can help to market and promote your business or announcement.  Just one of the many benefits of being a member.
