Chamber Business:

Several local Vermillion businesses are advertising in a Keep It Local Card.  This card is currently being solicited to Vermillion residents.  This is a legitimate program, but it is NOT a VCDC sponsored program.

Memorial Day Holiday, Monday, May 30.  The VCDC office will be closed.

Enjoy Food and Fun!  Come join the fun when Tour de Kota arrives in Vermillion in two weeks, on Thursday, June 9.  We�ve got fun plans in store for the riders and the Vermillion community!  The Tour de Kota campsite will be located on the USD North Complex grounds just north of Cherry Street between N. University and Plum Streets. A variety of food vendors will set up the morning of June 9 and serve throughout the day and evening.  KVHT will host a live remote during the afternoon and �Poker Alice� will entertain the crowd with live music in the evening from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.  Shuttle rides during the day will be provided to Tour de Kota bicyclists, courtesy of Vermillion Public Transit.  Friday morning will start bright and early as the Vermillion Lions Club serves pancakes and sausage before the riders take off for their last day of riding to Sioux Falls.  Spread the word, bring your friends and family, and enjoy great food, entertainment, and socializing.  What a great way to kick off the summer!!

VCDC Annual Golf Social will be June 28!  To beat the heat, the 2011 Vermillion Area Chamber & Development Company Annual Golf Social will be June 28 this year at The Bluffs Golf Course instead of July as in previous years.  The 4-Person Best Ball Scramble Golf Tournament will begin with team sign-in and pictures at 11:45 a.m. and the open format shot gun start is at 1 p.m.  The buffet dinner will be served at 6 p.m. followed by the golf awards and door prizes.  Please call the VCDC office at 624-5571 or email to register your team, be a hole sponsor, or donate a pin or door prize.  Please register soon!
