Colerain Chamber Newsletter | October 2016 | Issue 18
Chamber President Debra Stonehill IT'S ALMOST HERE! Our 2016 Business Awards Dinner is this Thursday, October 20. That's when we'll recognize all our Award Finalists and announce the winners of our seven business awards! That's also the evening of our 2016 Colerain Chamber Annual Meeting and Board of Directors election. There's still time to get tickets, but you need to do it before Thursday!
I'm also excited to announce our new Chamber Membership Drive, which begins on October 20th and continues through January 10, 2017.
Each Chamber Member who recruits a new member that joins the Colerain Chamber between October 20, 2016 - January 10, 2017, the Chamber Member who recruited them GETS A $20 GIFT CARD! All you need to do is make sure your new member recruit gives me your name when they join.  You get a $20 GIFT CARD FOR EACH NEW MEMBER YOU RECRUIT! 
The new members will be recognized at our New Member Reception in January, when we'll have prizes specifically for them. So it's a WIN, WIN!
I hope to see you at the dinner this Thursday - and I look forward to giving out lots of $20 gift cards!
