The Standard Journal - - LOCAL - By Kevin Myrick [email protected]­stan­dard­jour­

The Polk County Cham­ber of Com­merce is of­fer­ing peo­ple who want to get great hol­i­day deals and have a chance at a big prize be­fore Christ­mas a way to en­ter that con­test now.

A new dis­count card of­fer is avail­able for shop­pers in the com­mu­nity to pur­chase now for just $10, and get of­fers at a va­ri­ety of lo­cal stores in Polk County.

It’s a pro­mo­tion put to­gether by Cham­ber Ex­ec­u­tive Direc­tor Blair El­rod, who talked about the dif­fer­ent ways peo­ple can save and busi­nesses who are par­tic­i­pat­ing dur­ing the Novem­ber board meet­ing.

She said the dis­count pro­gram was made pos­si­ble through a part­ner­ship with Fam­ily Sav­ings Credit Union, who is spon­sor­ing a con­test with the Cham­ber for those who pur­chase the dis­count cards to have a chance to win a cash prize of $1,000.

The cards are $10 and good at se­lect down­town busi­nesses through July 1, 2019. Each card pur­chased in an in­di­vid­ual’s name en­ters them in for a chance to win the big prize, but also weekly draw­ings through the hol­i­day sea­son for $20 gift cards from re­tail­ers through the hol­i­day sea­son un­til Jan. 7.

Win­ners will also be drawn for the $1,000 prize af­ter the hol­i­days are over.

Busi­nesses on the cards are lo­cated in Cedar­town, Rock­mart and even one in Aragon.

El­rod said it was one of the many ef­forts un­der­way to raise funds for the Cham­ber, along with at­tract­ing new busi­nesses to join ranks as mem­bers as the board came within com­plet­ing the 2018 cal­en­dar year.

She also talked about the Cham­ber’s forth­com­ing Christ­mas event, board train­ing hap­pen­ing in early De­cem­ber, and more.

New board mem­bers were also rec­og­nized as they get ready to work as well. In 2019, Cham­ber mem­bers will be rep­re­sented by new ad­di­tions Anna Vaa­gen, Vic­to­ria Ray­mond, Rev. Mike Broome, Daniel Bevels and Stan­dard Jour­nal Ed­i­tor Kevin Myrick.

They’ll un­dergo new board train­ing on Dec. 3.
