Springville cham­ber part of many events to help com­mu­nity

Serve Daily - - FOSTERING GROWTH - Shirlene Jor­dan

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.
