September Business Over Breakfast
We are excited to bring you a new opportunity to get to know your fellow Chamber members in a relaxed setting. In lieu of a September luncheon, on Thursday, September 6, we will host a Business Over Breakfast at the Collinsville Chamber of Commerce office. There will be no formal program, just a chance to mingle, eat, and make business connections. The best part? It is FREE to our members!

Coffee and light breakfast will be served. Reservations are not required.

Make plans to join us from 8:00 - 9:00 am on September 6. Bring business cards to share with other attendees as well as any promotional materials you would like to leave in the office for us to distribute to our many visitors.

City/County Employee Appreciation Cookout
  
We had a great day cooking and serving lunch to our dedicated City of Collinsville and Tulsa County employees on Thursday, July 12. These people give so much to our community and we enjoy the chance to give back. 

Thank you to VVEC, American Bank of Oklahoma, Collinsville Dolton Funeral Home, and Limbocker Heat & Air for your sponsorship and donations that helped to cover some of our expenses. 

We would also like to thank all of the volunteers who helped bring this event to fruition. 

One last thank you to  Ted Wright for always capturing great photos and allowing the Chamber to share them!  
 
Tax Free Weekend
Tax Free Weekend will take place in Oklahoma August 3-5, 2018.

At the Collinsville Chamber of Commerce, we urge you to remember local businesses and hope you will choose to shop Collinsville for all of your back to school needs. Shopping local keeps money in our community and helps local businesses thrive. 
Teacher Appreciation Breakfast
Each year prior to the start of school, the Collinsville Chamber of Commerce is proud to serve breakfast to our hardworking teachers and support staff at Collinsville Public Schools. This is our way of thanking them and wishing them the best as they head into a new school year. 

We are looking for a few Chamber members who might want to help give back in our community by helping us deliver and set up food for this event on the morning of Tuesday, August 14. 

Call 918-371-4703 or email megan@collinsvillechamber.org if you are interested in helping.


Turkey Bingo 2018
This November we will be hosting our 5th annual Turkey Bingo event in downtown Collinsville. This event serves as a fundraiser for the Chamber, replenishing our funds and allowing us to work hard for our members and for Collinsville. We know that November might not yet be on your radar, but it's time for us to start planning!

We want our prizes this year to be bigger and better than ever and we need your help! If you own a local business, would you please consider donating an item to serve as a prize? Some of our most popular prizes are gift cards, which also serve as a way to get new people into your business. Please contact Megan at the office if you'd like to donate an item. Thanks so much, Collinsville!
