Note from the Director
Good morning,
 
We have some new opportunities for our members to get involved here at the Hampshire Area Chamber of Commerce.
 
As you may know, volunteers are the backbone of all non-profit organizations. Without their help, events and functions cannot succeed. 
 
We are always looking for extra hands to help by being on our board of directors, committees, and volunteering for the day of our events.  
 
If we each take a small portion of the workload that goes into an event imagine what the outcome could be. 
 
As of today we have 3 director positions available on our board of directors. We would love to see chamber members who have been wanting to get more involved step into these roles. 
 
Event Committee openings include: Santa's Mistletoe Market and Chamber Appreciation Luncheon
 
Volunteers are needed for the upcoming Annual Golf Outing and Santa's Mistletoe Market. 
 
If you are interested in any of the above please email hampshirechamber@gmail.com
 
We look forward to you being an active part of the future of the chamber!
 

Sincerely, 
Cassandra Austin
Executive Director

A word from Goebberts...

Registration is in full-swing for our first annual "Happy Jack Hustle 5K Family Fun Run/Walk" through the Farm on September 2nd. Early bird registration has been extended through July 20th. We are hoping to get many more people signed up as we keep getting closer to the actual event.
Set up has begun on Goebbert's Winter Wonderland. Brian Larsen has been starting to set up and install equipment in the orchard for our Winter light show that will begin on Thanksgiving weekend.
We have been busy getting ready for the Farmstand to open with our farm fresh sweet corn. We are opening on Friday, July 13th.
For people thinking ahead to Fall already, there are some dates still open to host a corporate event here at the Farm, and we are working with several brides and grooms that are having their wedding receptions here.
