The Chili Cook Off is a fundraiser for the Oconto Falls Lioness Club and the Avenue of Lights Project.  The Lioness Club is raising funds to pay for the electrical upgrades done along the Beach and the river so that the Avenue of Lights can continue and even be bigger and better.   The Lioness Club truly feels that the Avenue of Lights is something that is worthwhile for the community and has pledged to keep it going.

Chamber Golf Outing

The Chamber Golf Outing was loads of fun. Not only was there great weather, but people had a great time, lots of prizes and good food. Even better was the company and contacts people were able to make that day.

Networking and meeting others outside the workplace is just another way the Chamber helps embers build their working relationships.
