Attached is a summary of chamber activities for 2017. As the report shows, we’ve been busy sponsoring many programs to promote our Walton community.
As we enter the New Year, I wish all our members a healthy and prosperous 2018. I’m sure we agree that time flies when you’re busy – so it seems like just yesterday that I was writing the 2016 report!
I’ll take this opportunity to pass along some exciting news – exciting but very challenging! On Saturday, May 5 the chamber will hold the All Seasons Sportsmen’s Expo at the Delaware County Fairgrounds – the first sports show to be held in this area in many years. If you’re interested in helping – and we will need all the help we can get – meetings are being held at Wayne Bank’s drive-in window building at 6 p.m. every other Wednesday. Feel free to call me for details at 607-865-8884.
Regular monthly Chamber meetings continue to be held at the Walton Town Hall at 6:30 p.m. on the 3rd Tuesday of each month.
Also new this year is the formation of a Marketing Committee to better promote our events through social media channels. More information will be released in the coming months.
The information kiosk on Route 206, across from the Walton Motel, gets a lot of visitors and is maintained by an employee of Rolling V Transportation. Take advantage of this kiosk to hang your business cards and flyers. The kiosk at McDonald’s on Delaware Street is locked, but information can be left with Don Smith for posting.
Please note that the Chamber’s new telephone number is 607-441-8040.
