Winterfest is going to take place December 14th. I am so excited to be a part of this event and can’t wait to see it come to fruition.
Festival of Trees
The chamber is going to be doing the Festival of Trees fundraiser again. For those who may be unfamiliar with this fundraiser, businesses decorate a Christmas tree however they please and put it up for auction at Winterfest. From December 1st through the 14th, you can walk by different participating businesses and pick your favorite tree. Come Winterfest, all trees will be up for auction and can be bid on silent auction style.
All proceeds go to supporting the local Chamber of Commerce.
