October Newsletter 2016

The Mount Horeb Area Chamber of Commerce Newsletter  

Calling all of Mount Horeb residents! Come and watch the new DreamWorks Animation movie, Trolls with us Saturday, November 5, 2016 at 9:45.  Deadline for tickets to this showing is October 28th. You can get your tickets online at www.trollway.com


And we for sure found it...and sampled it! The 14th Annual Thirsty Troll Brew Fest can boast that  1100 people were in attendance! Guess what beer made you most Hoppy? Troll's Gold went to Hop Haus for their Plaid Panther Scotch Ale, Troll's Silver went to Wisconsin Brewing Co., for their Patron Saint Oktoberberfest and Troll's Bronze went to 3rd Sign Brewery for their Madagascar! We hope you were able to try them all! Stay Thirsty My Trolls!

Thank you to our corporate sponsors Farmers Savings Bank, JG Development, The Employer Group, The Grumpy Troll,  MHTC, Miller & Sons, Mound City Bank, and State Bank of Cross Plains, Upland Hills Health for helping make this festival even more successful. Thank you to all of our glass sponsors!

Thank you to all our hard working volunteers (you know who you are). This event couldn't happen without you.  Thank you to all the participants that contributed to the success of our Brew Fest and we'll see you all on September 9, 2017 for our bigger and thirstier 15th Annual Thirsty Troll Brew Fest. Stay thirsty my trolls! 

We hope you fell in Love with Mount Horeb during Fall Heritage Festival. It is so rewarding to see the community come together for such a wonderful event, d espite the gloomy weekend. 

We hope everyone had a chance to experience every aspect of what the Fall Heritage Festival offered from the Norwegian Heritage Host Frokost Breakfast and Heritage area, Pumpkins on Parade, Mount Horeb Historical Society Troll Mountain Upcycling Project, to every crafter and buggy ride up and down Main Street. Thank you to everyone (volunteers and sponsors) behind the scenes that contribute in making our Fall Heritage Festival a truly special event. 

This year's Small Town Holidays theme is "A Joyous Season." During the week of November 6th, 10,000
 Holiday brochures will be distributed through the area newspapers and retailers. 
There are many special events and festivities taking place during our Small Town Holidays in November and December, including Hospitality Day, the Holiday Craft Bonanza, an indoor Farmer's Market at the ELC Community Room, Small Business 
Saturday and Friday Festive Eves.

Applications for the Holiday Craft Bonanza will be available at the Welcome Center. To place an ad in the Small Town Holidays brochure, please email adminassist@trollway.com or call 437-5914.

Once again this year - the Mount Horeb Area Chamber of Commerce is joining other area businesses in the Giving Tree project.

Have you seen this face? We are fundraising for the new Troll Mountain project that we are going to construct by the East end of town across the street from Symdon Motors. Nothing says Mount Horeb more than a happy troll greeting our residents and visitors every day! If you would like to contribute to this project, we have a GoFundMe account set up. Please click here for more information.
