We wish you and your family a happy Thanksgiving! However and with whomever you are celebrating, enjoy the day and each other.
During this time to count our blessings, we agree that our families, our Chamber members and our community all rank high on this list. The Chamber office will be closed on Thursday and Friday, but we will be open next Monday as usual.
Holiday Chamber Bucks
Our Holiday Chamber Bucks promotion is on! Scroll down to get all the details on how you can receive up to $50 in Holiday Bucks when you purchase regular Chamber Bucks. Stop in to purchase yours now and help support shopping local during this holiday season and beyond!
We urge you to shop and dine local on Small Business Saturday - and always! As you shop Batavia's downtown, look for QR codes - these businesses are participating in the holiday decorating contest sponsored by Batavia MainStreet. You can vote via the QR code beginning Saturday, Nov. 27. We are participating and Patti, our special events coordinator, has once again shown her fantastic creativity in the small space we have to work with. Thank you to Batavia Enterprises for the lights and garland outside of our building, 106 W. Wilson Street - we love it! So remember, vote for the Batavia Chamber windows beginning on Saturday - and vote often...LOL.
