Around the Town By Bonnie Sorensen Ho! Ho! Ho! Happy Holidays! That is what the Chamber of Commerce Retail Promotion Committee is working on now. Sunday, Nov. 21 will be the holiday kick-off for Vermillion Chamber of Commerce merchants. Plans are being made to bring Santa to town in style, extended store hours will go into effect, free movies for the family start at the Vermillion theatres, and our city streets will be aglow with decorations.
This is truly a magical time of year for young and old alike. And shopping! This holiday season support your local businesses. By spending your dollars in Vermillion you are investing in the growth and well-being of our community. Your tax dollars are used to support and promote our schools, the arts, our library, parks and recreation, and most importantly our future.
Our local businesses generously donate to so many of our school causes, clubs and groups for the betterment of our community. So as you're looking at your gift lists, remember to support Vermillion businesses. Shop at home.
