Chamber members discuss upcoming Christmas stroll
November 8, 2017
With the Christmas Stroll a month away, members of the Whitehall Chamber of Commerce have been hard at work in preparation for the popular annual event.
At the regular chamber meeting last week, treasurer Jill Dove said they currently have about one-third of the number of vendors they have space for who have submitted applications. Chamber members suggested using social media to boost interest for not only vendors, but for overall attendance at the event. Member Kristi Wilson said the creating an “event” on Facebook would be a good way to share about the Christmas Stroll, while member Allissa Christensen said that paying to have a post “boosted” would also be a good way to share information.
Vendor applications for the December 9 event can be picked up at the Chamber Office. For more information about the event or to get an application emailed, call 406-287-2260 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Dove said she has also been working on the Christmas light contest, quilt show, and gingerbread house contest.
In a report to the board, Chamber assistant Ann Lawrence said she has also been working on the quilt show, and recently took a book of raffle tickets for a chamber gun raffle to Murdoch’s in Butte. The chamber has currently sold 39 tickets for the raffle and has hopes of selling 75 prior to the November 15 drawing.
Lawrence also discussed new outdoor flyer boxes that will be placed outside of the chamber to allow people to get information about the Whitehall area when the office is closed.
The first meeting for the 2018 Black Tie Blue Jeans event took place last Thursday, and next month a meeting will take place to discuss the 2017 Frontier Days event. It will take place following the general chamber meeting scheduled for December 7 at 1 p.m.
