Here's Your Sign
Can you believe that Thanksgiving is next week already and the holiday season is underway? Be sure to support your neighbors by shopping local; we are lucky to have just about everything you need for your wish list and holiday fun here in Chesaning! If you are stumped for a gift idea, don’t forget that our Chamber Gift Certificates make great Christmas presents AND support your fellow Chamber members… a win-win for everyone!
Here at the Chamber we have been busy producing our first Every Door Direct Mail marketing piece featuring holiday greetings and coupons from 12 of our Chamber members. These will be delivered to 3358 households and businesses in the 48616 zip code during the first week of December. If the mailers are well-received, we plan to offer another similar opportunity in the spring.
Great News! We are eagerly anticipating the arrival of our new electronic sign to replace the out-dated Chamber marquee by the Post Office. We are hoping that it will be installed before the end of the year, a great Christmas gift to our members and the community! The sign will give us much more flexibility to promote events and our members. It will be full color, energy-efficient LED with remote programming (which makes Kate very happy as winter arrives!) and will enable us to offer more than two messages each week. Your marketing committee is working on updated sign procedures and will share that information soon.
The purchase of our new sign has been a large investment for the Chamber. Thanks to the success of our Annual Chamber Raffle ticket sales, we are able to make this much-needed update. Please continue to support this project by selling the 2020 Raffle tickets. Don’t forget that business members receive a discount off their membership dues if they sell 10 tickets… another win-win! The Chamber office has set a goal of an additional 100 tickets to be sold this year… the challenge is on! Watch your weekly updates for our progress towards this goal.
Small Business Saturday is on November 30th… this is a great day to shop local and enjoy our community restaurants. Or visit one of the holiday events like the craft shows and Santa’s Village! Another way to support our non-profit members is to remember them on Giving Tuesday, December 3 as you consider your end-of-the-year donations.
The Chamber Board of Directors and staff are thankful for our members and wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!
President—Chamber Board of Directors
