The Fennimore Area Chamber of Commerce marketing committee would like to announce an addition to this year’s holiday promotions. They are asking businesses to join in the holiday spirit by displaying a holiday tree in their business place or if space doesn’t permit to put up a window display. This year’s holiday decorating will feature a Christmas tree theme. Businesses are encouraged to have decorations in place by Friday, Nov 18 the same time as the Shop Small – Win Big promotion begins.
In coordination with the Wisconsin Department of Tourism’s “Bundle Up” promotion, the chamber marketing team suggests those businesses with trees consider turning the tree into a giving tree. Encourage employees and customers to bring in “warm” items to place on the tree. Warm items like hats, gloves, socks, scarves etc. are encouraged. All donations will be donated to those in need within the Fennimore area and Grant County. Please contact the Promotions Coordinator office or Joy Bussan at Carr Valley Cheese for more details.
