Chamber moving away from Futurity


January 10, 2018

The Whitehall Chamber of Commerce is looking to move away from the Futurity Event at the annual Frontier Days Celebration in July.

Chamber Executive Coordinator Casey Chase said at a meeting last week that it has become more difficult to work with contractors and while prices are going up for the event, attendance is not.

Chase said they would be looking into doing a more traditional rodeo, ranchers rodeo, or having barrel racing and roping.

In other business, Chase said they currently have 51 Chamber renewals for 2018. After a total of 62 members last year, Chase has hopes to see the number closer to 100 where it has been in the past. She said renewal notices would be sent out sometime this week.

The Chamber also welcomed a new board for 2018. The President is Jan Thorne, the Vice President is the Whitehall Ledger, Allissa Christensen is the Secretary and Dove is the Treasurer. John Sullivan, Peter Niedermeyer, and Kristi Wilson will serve as Board Directors.

Dove said the annual Chamber Easter Egg Hunt is set for March 31 and they would be working with the school to have concessions like hot chocolate available during the event.
