Springville chamber part of many events to help community
The Springville Chamber of Commerce is alive, well and on the rise! Our membership is now at 102 business members. This number reflects a growth of just over 100 percent in the past 13 months.
We hold quarterly lunch meetings that are informative, fun and very well attended. Scott Mitchell will be our keynote speaker at our May 20 Lunch Meeting. We are excited to have him join us and to share his message.
The chamber strives to have a big presence here and we have been involved in a lot of Springville activities:
Bike with the Mayor: We supported the vity by sponsoring the hot dog booth.
Art City Days: We have an information booth for our businesses and a spinning wheel where we hand out advertising items provided by the businesses. It’s very popular. We also hosted a Business BINGO game last year.
Heritage Days: We had an information booth for our businesses and offered free booth space for any chamber business that wanted a spot.
Chamber Scholarship Golf Tournament: We raised enough money to give out four $1,000 scholarships to deserving students from Springville and Mapleton.
Safe Halloween: We sponsored this event along with our businesses along Main Street and those businesses who set up at the Civic Center. We had over 3,000 kids and parents attend.
Springville Beautification: We painted and planted the old wooden planter boxes along Main Street. We also donated almost $3,000 in lights to add to and replace the Christmas lights that adorned our Main Street this year. It was truly beautiful.
Ribbon Cuttings: We welcome all new businesses by providing chamber ribbon cuttings. The chamber members, chamber board, Mayor Wilford W. Clyde, city administration, city council members and Miss Springville/Mapleton Madison Monson and her attendants all participate.
Welcome Bags; We distribute your advertising items such as pens, coupons, calendars, flashlights, mugs, hats and water bottles to our new citizens of Springville. We encourage members to participate in this popular and ongoing project. When new citizens turn on their utilities, they receive a Welcome Bag.
Looking ahead, we are going to launch a “Buy/Shop/Stay Local” campaign and participate in Play Unplugged this summer.
