November Newsletter 2016

The Mount Horeb Area Chamber of Commerce Newsletter  

We sure had a troll-tastic party at Marcus Theaters for the p remier weekend of the DreamWorks Trolls movie. It certainly was time to pass the glitter as we had 170 residents strut their stuff on the Troll Carpet and watch the movie with us! Thank you to Georgia Post for the awesome Troll Carpet! If you haven't watched the troll movie, it is worth getting out o f your cave  for!
This year's Small Town Holidays theme is "A Joyous Season."
There are many special events and festivities taking place during our Small Town Holidays in November and December starting with Shop Small Business on Saturday Nov. 26th!  Don't forget our Friday Festive Eves every Friday night in December until Christmas. 

Once again this year the Mount Horeb Area Chamber of Commerce is joining other area businesses in the Giving Tree project. Select a tag for a child, senior, or special needs resident.Tags are available at the Welcome Center, Miller & Sons Supermarket and other limited locations now. Also part of the Giving Tree is Elect-A-Scrooge!
John Scheidegger  (First Weber), Heidi Kopras (Restaino & Associates Realtors), Duane Iverson (Century 21 Pfister Agency), Karen Tetzlaff (Realty Executives), & Gary Frisch (Potterton Rule)  are our good sports this holiday season. Vote for your favorite "Scrooge" to help benefit the Giving Tree. Look for buckets at various businesses around town - including the Welcome Center. Please join us in the spirit of giving. 

Another activity for the Giving Tree hosted by the FDMH is the Ugly Sweater Event, December 10th, at 8 p.m. at the Firehouse Bar, 117 S. 1st St., Mount Horeb. Flaunt your ugly sweater during the gun raffle and bucket raffle or come out for the fun!

We kicked off the holiday season with a very successful Holiday Craft Bonanza with over 1,000 people coming through the show!  We especially want to thank the following for all their volunteer efforts in set-up, tear down and hospitality:   Pat Taylor, Nikki Gralapp, Bob Klebba, Mark Mostrom, Sarah & Max Frisch, Angela Cotey, Katherine McGuire, Karla Ott, Jane Topper, Mary Liz Jast, Cathy Scott, Linda Stoenner, KarenTetzlaff, Marly VanCamp, Todd Fritz, Mark Johnson, and Trevor Regali.
