Thanks to everyone that has responded to the Chamber Champion Sponsorship Program. We will be going to print this week on our special t-shirt and in order to have your logo on the shirt we need to have your commitment this week.
More details are below:
As a reminder, this sponsorship program was created to replace the Western Days income. The 51st Annual Western Days Festival scheduled for June 23-27 has been cancelled due to COVID19 concerns. This event is the largest fundraiser for the Chamber and our budget has been directly impacted. Without the $30,000 this event normally raises, the Chamber could face challenges by having to reduce staff and services to our members and community. As an effort to replace Western Days income, we have created a new Chamber Champion Sponsorship Program. All Chamber Champion sponsors will receive recognition and allows us the opportunity to spotlight companies that are dedicated to the mission of the Chamber. These sponsors will receive benefits above and beyond standard membership.

Western Days is a favorite summer tradition in this community and we are disappointed that it will not be held this year. But, to help us remember the 2020 event that didn’t happen, we have created a special 2020 Western Days commemorative t-shirt. All our Chamber Champion Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze sponsors will have their logos on the back of this t-shirt. These shirts will be sold for $15 and will be available later this month.
As our community, continues to re-open businesses and works towards a different “normal” - let’s remember to be kind, extend grace and support our friends and neighbors. One Town One Team One family!
Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of assistance.
