Chamber Notes . . . Holiday Promotions

 

Daniels County Chamber met virtually on Monday, November 16 at noon. The Chamber received a large number of Montana Made, washable masks for free distribution, acquired through the Montana Office of Tourism and Business Development. Chamber will be handing them out to area businesses and churches to give away.

As part of the Christmas annual promotion, the chamber is putting together a small catalog type shopping guide for chamber members. Deadline to contact chamber is November 25. Chamber members can send some photos or something else that you would like your section to have in the booklet. See email at end of story. There will be an adult Scavenger Hunt and a children’s Scavenger Hunt with big prizes. This will take place over a course of several days, December 1st-18th, rather than one evening as in previous years, to help avoid crowds.

Local purchases will be made throughout December instead of within a few hours. There will be a list of tasks for community members to complete. For example: purchase a beverage from a local restaurant/store and take a sel- fie picture with it, buy flowers from the local florist, make a purchase at a local hardware/ variety store and take a photo with it. This will not require much participation from the business itself, maybe a signature for those businesses that are not in retail. Example: we may ask for a signature when you stop into your local insurance agent. The card will be turned in when completed for a chance for prizes. This scavenger hunt will be for those 18+.

The kids version for ages through age 17: businesses will have one piece of a snowman that kids (or the parents) must pick up to build their snowman. The snowman will be turned in when it is completed for a chance for prizes. Businesses wanting to

participate in the Snowman Scavenger Hunt, contact the email below. The only thing a business will need to do is hand out a piece of the snowman that will be provided. It will involve handing out paper pieces with a drawing of a scarf, carrot, nose, buttons, etc.

Some big prizes will be awarded as PRO Co-op is donating an adult grand prize of a Pro 575 Traeger wood pellet grill and Nemont is do- nating a Gen 8 128GB iPad for

children’s grand prize. There

will also be five drawings from

the entries for $100 for adults and ten $50 Chamber Bucks given to the kids. All drawn from entries, so there are no drawing buckets to deal with.

Drawings will be Saturday December 19.

Chamber will sponsor a free admission movie December 12 at Richardson Theatre (TBA) and Scobey Lions will

be bringing Santa to hand our bags of candy after the matinee.

An email has been sent out to all members concerning all the aforementioned.

Contact [email protected] if interested.

In other business, four members are up for election of board of directors Silver Star Insurance, Handran’s Insurance, Farver Farms and the Leader. A nominating committee of Tim Rask, Morgan Lekvold and Leif Handran was appointed.

The annual meeting is scheduled for January 18 at Banjo’s. Happy hour 5:30; eat

at 6 p.m. and brief meeting at 7 p.m. Open to all members and prospective members.
