What’s up for May and beyond? There is something brand new and something old with new additions. Your Chamber of Commerce is always looking for ways to support our local merchants and support community activity. Just so you know right now Chamber members are volunteering on three different committees including Park Fete and The Wine Stroll committee starts in mid May for our September event.
May 5th from 11am - 2:00pm is our first Sunday in the Park. What’s new? Each of our First Sundays, May, June, Aug, and Oct, will have a theme and a featured member who will be spotlighted. In May it will be Cow and Rooster Design featuring new member Elizabeth Hahn. When you need new business cards or promotional items, she is your gal. We will be holding her Ribbon Cutting during the event. Also there will be two crafts for the children to make its for their mother’s, a story time with Miss Amanda, Face Painting, and chalk art. The taco truck will be in attendance to keep you nourished. Did I mention there will be goodie bags? Local merchants have donated items to be given at the Chamber Booth. Also in the bag will be your first card for the Poker Run.
Starting May 5th through May 11th we are encouraging the town’s people to visit each of five local businesses: Escalon Feed and Supply, PAWS, Mountain Mike’s, Heck of a Deal and JAB and take a look around and receive a playing card in your search for the best poker hand. Your hand must contain one card from each of the member merchants. Rules will be available and in the stores. Once inside the store we encourage you to take advantage of offerings displayed and purchase those items you need or at least want. On Saturday the 11th you may turn in your best hand and be eligible for one of several prizes.
We encourage any of you who have not yet joined or renewed to go to the website and join. There will be additional opportunities to members only as the year progresses. Need to take a refresher course in continuing ed at with Delta or UOP then take advantage of our first come first served scholarship available to merchants only. Details at the website.
As always, THINK ESCALON FIRST!
