Cross Plains Area Chamber of Commerce
CROSSING PATHS
Words of (not quite) Wisdom
from the Executive Director


Hello Cross Plains!

Memorial Day was not the same yesterday ( and I'm not just talking about the lack of torrential rain storms), but it was magnificent. My goal when the pandemic hit in March was to partner with local businesses and organizations to ensure that Cross Plains continued our celebration of Memorial Day. At the time I had no idea what that would look like. Looking back on the celebrations happening in our great community yesterday, I am proud of everyone that made the day a great success!

The downside is that the lack of our largest fundraiser definitely hurts the Chamber. This year, your membership and commitment to the Cross Plains Area Chamber of Commerce is more important than ever. We hope that we've proven over the last year and throughout this pandemic, that our dedication to businesses, organizations, and community is solid and growing stronger every day. Please sign up to join the Cross Plains Area Chamber of Commerce today!

If you have any questions about membership, please email me directly. Thank you!

Be Safe & Healthy!

Kind Regards,

Terra Morris
Executive Director
