Welcome Fall! We enjoyed an awesome August with our 10 th Anniversary of Thunder in the City and our Annual Fall Golf Outing! Thanks to all of our sponsors of both events for making Thunder a fun & entertaining free
weekend for our community. Of course, our Fall Golf Outing was full and almost 200 people enjoyed a hot, but fun day at Mt. Hope Golf Course! This is always one of my favorite events & everyone had a great time, with people
winning great prizes whether it was for their golf skills or from our fabulous auction!
After a very busy August, we haven’t slowed down, in fact, we are busier than ever! Mark your calendars!! Saturday, September 15 th is our 3rd Annual Chamber Wine & Brew Walk!! Thanks so much to everyone who helped make the first 2 events so successful and sell out! We’ve added a few more stops, more local restaurants & caterers will be featured, more tickets will be sold, 2 food trucks will be additional unique food options & more! We added sweet & savory stops & shopping stops too! (You definitely won’t want to miss these!!) Our host locations will become tasting rooms for favorite wines, beer, cider, new offerings from distributors & unique distillery options! There are numerous sponsorship opportunities available that include event tickets! You definitely won’t want to miss it!
October brings another key Chamber event! We are changing the venue this year, but keeping the same great packages for our members to bid on! Our Annual Advertising & Media Auction on October 10th will be @ the Voodoo Production Facility! This is the perfect opportunity to get great advertising & media packages at a fraction of the cost while enjoying an entertaining evening. There are numerous packages that are not advertising related such as restaurant packages, venue spaces, golf packages, entertainment packages & more! These are ideal for employee appreciation or potential client ideas. THERE IS SOMETHING FOR EVERY BUSINESS AND EVERY BUDGET AT THIS EVENT!!! Be sure to donate something to this event as well, so that we can promote your company and get specific details of any advertising specials that you will be offering to promote your business.
A signature event for the Chamber is our Women in Business Expo We have also made some changes to this event this year. We will be holding this event on Wednesday, November 7 th at the Country Club of Meadville! Join us for this spectacular event featuring women-owned/managed businesses as vendors, enlightening speakers, fabulous food, cocktails, & a nice evening out with girlfriends & business colleagues. This is a night for women to support other women in our community, hear from our dynamic speakers, do some holiday shopping, enjoy some delicious food, enjoy a signature holiday cocktail, win a fabulous gift package & more! All of our vendors donate great prize packages that will be given to lucky winners! Be sure to register your vendor space now, bring your staff or invite your friends to attend!
Happy Fall to everyone. This means many different things to everyone. Whether it is now looking forward to kids getting back into a regular routine, Friday night high school football games, or whatever it may be, I hope to see you at any of our upcoming events. As you can see we have something every month, and are looking forward to this next season with you!
