Attention Community (both business owners and residents), the Lincolnton Lincoln County Chamber of Commerce is working to finalize the program of work for the remainder of the year and we need your involvement.

Included with this Chamber Chatter is a calendar of the Events and list of Chamber functions for your personal reference.

One particular time of year that requires input from the entire community is the Holidays In Olde Lincoln Towne Festival and Holiday Parade, which is scheduled for Saturday, November 19, 2005. The most important details include scheduling merchant participation, street vendors, entertainment, parade entries, and an array of other factors that contribute to the overall success of the festival. It takes a full committee of people with different ideas, points of view, and creativity to pull an event, such as Holidays In Olde Lincoln Towne, together and make it successful!

Of course, the chamber promotes Holidays In Olde Lincoln Towne as a two-month Festival celebration within the community, including as much as possible to attract tourists as well as locals to spend some or even all of their holiday in Lincolnton and Lincoln County.

The chamber of commerce wants to add as many events to the overall holidays calendar as possible! November through December is a wonderful time for you to host an open house, special holiday sales, or just whatever you want to do to enhance your business, organization, and community for the season.

Whatever you decide, please include the chamber of commerce in your plans; we certainly will enjoy assisting wherever we can to make your holiday experience memorable and profitable.

Contact the chamber office with your ideas and if you would like to serve on the planning committee.

There is so much to do and volunteers are always needed! Call Benton Willis 401-0430, Nancy Hohlwein 359-3197, Michele Mongrue 3591671, Gena Freeman 401-1545, Vicky Dawkins 359-1442 or Ginger Parham 359-7970 and tell them what you would like to do for the annual Holidays In Olde Lincoln Towne Festival & Holiday Parade on Saturday, November 19, 2005.
