Happy Homecoming Week! It’s great to see the school colors on our store fronts and along the boulevard as we look forward to Friday’s parade and game! Homecoming week is also a great reminder of the many students who choose to make a life in our community after graduation. We are proud of Chesaning and love to see the generations of families who continue to live and work here!
Homecoming quickly leads us into the holiday season. Children of all ages are looking forward to Halloween trick-or-treating in the Village on Thursday, October 31 from 6-8pm. Several of our Chamber members are also offering fun and family-friendly Halloween events (find their flyers on page 5).
We are excited to announce that once again our town will shine with holiday cheer, thanks to the Village of Chesaning supporting the light pole decorations and garland, as well as a large group of volunteers from Lippert Components and chamber board members who are planning to hang lights in the downtown and boulevard trees. Our village will sparkle in time for Thanksgiving weekend when we enjoy our favorite annual events including the 5ers 5k Turkey Trot, the Music Booster and St. Peter Parish craft shows and the opening of Santa’s Village. We are excited for these activities to kick-off the holidays in Chesaning and are already getting calls from visitors for more information. Please be sure to share any holiday specials or other events that your business or organization is planning so that we can include them on the Chesaning Community Calendar and help you promote them!
Speaking of promotions, your Chamber Marketing Committee is working to design a holiday mailer with 12 available advertising slots that we will offer to our Chamber members only. We plan to print and send the “Every Door Direct Mailing” in time for the first week of December. It will target 3358 addresses in our local zip code and is a great opportunity to drive business to your door during the busy holiday shopping season. Watch our emails for more information in coming days.
Also, keep an eye on your post box for your renewal packets that will be arriving during the first week of November. Be sure to respond early to take advantage of discount opportunities! As always, we would like to thank all of our chamber members for their continued support of the chamber mission and our community through your membership investments.
Everybody get out to the stadium on Friday to cheer on our home team at the varsity homecoming football game.
President—Chamber Board of Directors
