The Next Directory
As many of you know, the Chamber partners with deRuyter Nelson (publisher of The Monitor) to print a directory every spring. We have heard from many members of the value this printed directory brings, including those who advertise, as it also goes to 18,000 homes in and near the Midway neighborhood. The directory is not only a helpful tool if you are looking for a member, but provides helpful information on the Chamber and is a revenue generator. If you are interested in advertising, click here to view the advertising rates. 



 

 

 

If you chose an ornament from the Ronald McDonald House Wish Tree, please drop it off at the Chamber office, the Monthly Luncheon and Celebration of Nonprofit event on Thursday or any McDonald's before December 16th.  Don't forget to tape the ornament on the wrapped package so that it can be directed to the correct recipient. 

Thank You!
