Upcoming Chamber Member Events

Friday Night on the Square Sponsors 

As you already know, due to the severe weather, Friday Night on the Square had to be cancelled. A special thank you to all who showed up, ready to brave the weather with us!

Our board had an emergency meeting today to discuss the matter. The decision was made NOT to reschedule the event. If you signed up and had already paid for your booth space, we will either use that payment as a credit for your space for the upcoming Fall Friday Night on the Square on Sept. 15th OR we can send you a refund. Please let me know how you would like to handle it.

Again, thank you EVERYONE for your continued support of the Chamber!
