Spring is here! It’s time to enjoy the great outdoor in Northeast Wisconsin. The preparation has started in anticipation of warm weather activities, such as fishing, swimming and boating on the Oconto River. The Oconto Falls Area Chamber of Commerce is ready to help create some excitement in the community with a few projects this year.
The Flag Project has begun. Letters will be sent out this week. Donations of $75 will sponsor a 3X5 American Flag, Pole and Bracket. The addition of American flags on streets of Main, Union, Chestnut, Highland, Maple and Green Bay will help decorate our city.
The Boat Raffle will begin at our membership meeting on Thursday May 16th at 12 pm at Oconto Falls City Hall. The proceeds from the raffle will go toward beautification and new welcome signs for the city.
• Relationship development with the cities of Oconto Falls, Oconto, their surrounding areas and Oconto County is a great foundation for economic stability. Working together has begun with the Highway 22 project planning in Oconto Falls, shared events (golf outing with the Oconto Chamber), and the speaker for our meeting Paul Ehrfurth from OCEDC will give us some insight on the development of the county.
• Updates to our welcome packets, by-laws, website and Facebook account are in progress or complete. Please check the website, read the meeting minutes and attend the meetings to receive information or to share your thoughts and ideas.
I encourage all members to promote the area and all it has to offer.
Let’s make Oconto Falls and the surrounding area the place to be.
