Altona Chamber promoting Take Out To Win
The Altona & District Chamber of Commerce in partnership with SEED and the Plum Coulee Chamber of Commerce is working hard to promote shopping at our local restaurants in Altona, Gretna and Plum Coulee during this Code Red Covid-19 shutdown.

Take out To Win runs for five weeks from November16 to December 18 and each week there are four prizes awarded of $25 in Chamber Bucks and $25 in gift cards/certificates. All entries are re-entered for a grand prize of $250 in Chamber Bucks.

In the first two weeks we have received 42 entries. All you need to do to enter is order food in the amount of $30 or more at a local restaurant and upload your receipt to the Chamber Instagram or Facebook page or email
Congratulations to our winners to date : Curt Martens, Tara and Al Friesen, Robin Martens, Mang Jual Onganon, Richard Wiebe, Ang Nickel, Rachel Friesen and Sheila Hildebrand.

There are still three weeks left to enter to Take Out To Win. Order at any restaurant in Altona, Plum Coulee and Gretna. When you enter, you win both ways. You support a local business and you have the opportunity to WIN!

Please support all our local businesses who are here for us year round. Without them, Altona will cease to exist.

Chamber Bucks A Hit This Season
THANK YOU to the businesses and individuals who have purchased over $100,000 in Chamber Bucks in November. We have taken a large step toward supporting our local retailers at this time when many are struggling under Covid-19, Code Red+ restrictions. We are all in this together and we have a long way to go to make sure we all come out the other end intact.

Chamber Bucks are still available and come in denominations of $5, $10, $25, $50 & $100 and are as same as cash at any Altona & District Chamber Member business any time. The business simply places the Bucks in their regular financial deposit, the financial institution credits the amount and then contacts the Chamber for reimbursement. It's as simple as that.
And the good you do by encouraging your employees, friends and family to shop locally goes far beyond your doors and may be the catalyst to keep struggling businesses alive in our community.

The Altona Elks are selling Elks Cash Calendars for 2021. You can win a cash prize every single day of the year. Last year Gerald Schellenberg of Altona won $5,547.50 in the 50/50 draw. All funds raised go to local community charities, last year Kiddie Sunshine Centre received $3,000; this year the Family Resource Centre received $3,500. Please contact Guy Mullen or any Elks member to purchase your calendar.
