The board has just completed a retreat and have great plans to benefit the members. Business after hours is held at a different each month and only business folk are invited. The sponsor gets a 5 minute infomercial. Contact Betty Weimer at Grounds and Goodies or Carla Burge at the Chamber office if you are a member and wish to get on that list! Banners have been designed for downtown and we will be having them printed soon by the Anamosa Prison Industries. Each Chamber member will have their name on a banner. We host the Pumpkinfest in October, and co host with the down town businesses the Home and Garden Show in March and Magic on Main Friday after Thanksgiving. The Annual meeting is held in January. The Spring Prayer breakfast is another event sponsored by the Chamber and is held Good Friday Morning at the Lawrence Community Center.
