Chamber Business:

Attention Chamber Members!  If you serve the USD student community please join us for the Coyote Bash Thursday, Sept. 1 from 6 to 8 p.m. in Downtown Vermillion  at Ratingen Platz.  The Coyote Bash is a partnership between the Vermillion Area Chamber of Commerce and the University of South Dakota which welcomes back USD students and introduces incoming freshmen to the product and service offerings of the community.  This year, it is being held in conjunction with Thursdays on the Platz.  Making the students aware of all we have to offer improves retention, maintains a strong customer base and keeps retail spending local.  Don�t miss this great opportunity to build loyalty and a relationship with your customers from day one by setting up a table to introduce and promote your business to the new students. For more information or if interested in setting up a table, please contact Ann at the Vermillion Area Chamber & Development Co. at 624-5571 or annb@vermillionchamber.com

Business After Hours:  Are you looking for an opportunity to showcase your business and network with your peers?  Sign up to host a Business After Hours event!  These events generally run from 5 to 7 p.m. on a weeknight and the hosting business provides hors d�oeuvres and refreshments.  If interested, please contact Ann at:  annb@vermillionchamber.com or at 624-5571.

Announcements:

Invitation to community organizations to join in the 2011 Tanager Volunteer Day, Tuesday, Sept. 20.  Students will be participating in a full day of work from approximately 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.  Students will work in groups of 14 to 17, but the groups can be adjusted if needed.  Please dare to challenge Vermillion students � many things can be accomplished in a short time.  The students enjoy cleaning, painting, vacuuming, planting trees, scrapping paint, or almost any task you need completed.  Last year one group was solely committed to assisting elderly and homebound individuals in our community.  If you know anyone that could use a little help with gardens, windows, or just a visit please contact Lenni Billberg at lenni.billberg@k12.sd.us.
