Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) were the topic of guest speaker Joel Farkell’s presentation, but business reports were heard before he took the floor at the Chamber of Commerce meeting on Dec. 11.
The Chamber appreciated everyone who braved the cold and sought to enjoy the Christmas Stroll regardless of subzero temperatures. Businesses enjoyed a successful evening, and both the Shop at Home Bingo game and the Tree Auction were well attended. The tree and wreath sales brought in approximately $5,200—which is comparable to last year’s totals—with all of the money going towards street decorations, as per usual. This year there were 12 wreaths, 12 artificial trees, and four live trees to bid on.
Attendees were advised that the Button Program is still in progress, and, though the drawings for the Chamber gift cards were done at this meeting, most deals available through the program will run until Christmas.
