The Sheriff's Santas!
As you may recall, Sheriff Paul Thomas worked alongside the Chambers last year to bring some love, hope, and goodwill to Gibson County during the holiday season, and it was a huge success! He’s decided to do the same again this year, but he will once again need your help. 
 
During the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas, he would like to provide his deputies with envelopes of Chamber Cash to hand out to random citizens throughout the county. We’re calling this “The Sheriff’s Santas”. He thought it would be nice to surprise some unsuspecting, law-abiding citizens with a little extra help during the holidays, but he needs sponsors in order to make it happen. If you or your business would like to donate to this project (any amount would be greatly appreciated), please let us know and we will make it happen! He would like to recognize the persons and/or businesses who sponsor this project, or your donation can be anonymous if you'd prefer.  
 
We appreciate Sheriff Thomas considering Chamber Cash so that this money will be spent in Gibson County!
 
Your sponsorship is due no later than Friday, November 19th Give us a call at (731) 686-7494 if you need more information or to sign up. 

For those of you who accept Milan Chamber Cash, these will work the same way, but look different. They are on red paper and will say Greater County Chamber of Commerce. You will ONLY accept these if they have a sponsor sticker on the bottom. These are in addition to Milan Chamber Cash, which will remain the same.
