Around the Town by Bonnie Sorensen It seems like only yesterday that the Chamber of Commerce was busy preparing for our city's fourth of July celebration! Where did the summer go? For the next few months our Retail Promotion Committee will be putting the finishing touches on Vermillion's Home for the Holidays kick-off planned for Sunday, Nov. 21. Santa will arrive in style by horse drawn carriage; there will be a free family movie and much more.
Last season, the Vermillion Area Chamber of Commerce was able to raise donations and sponsorships for our new Christmas decorations. The mission isn't over as we as a community need to finish the decoration package for Cherry Street. Hope to see you all on Saturday, Sept. 18, 4:30 to 7 p.m. for our Jamboree BBQ outside between Old Main and Slagle Hall. Proceeds from the BBQ will go towards our Christmas decoration fund. Donations can also be sent to the Vermillion Area Chamber of Commerce, 906 E Cherry St. Let's have a bright and festive holiday season '99 for our community.
Fall is such a busy time a year for everyone! If you need a break, stop in the Chamber office, have a cup of coffee, and let's talk Vermillion. Have a great week!
