Let's showcase our town with a peppy patriotic parade! Start brainstorming and planning now on your entry to this festive community gathering on Main Street!
In the past, the Chamber has organized Bingo, The Dirty Dynamite Dash, Bands, Street Dances, BBQs, Free Movies at the Theater, Patriotic Tributes, Fun Runs, Cake Walks, a free afternoon of Swimming in the Community's Pool to cool off and more! Look forward to our 2020 Celebration!
We absolutely love to WOW the community with an awesome display of fireworks!
Business After Hours is a networking event open to all community members. A Chamber Business will open their doors in the evening usually from 5-7pm for a social & relaxation period and a time to share what is happening in their business.
This allows members to get a behind the scenes look at some of the local businesses and network with other Chamber Members and community members.
