Best wishes for a healthy and prosperous 2017 for all our Walton residents. As our report shows, we’ve been busy sponsoring many programs to promote our Walton community.
Our chamber website is still maintained by Gibson Hill Services (Helen McLean, who is also a chamber director). Please check the website and advise Helen of any changes in your listing and send corrections to .
The chamber kiosk on Route 206 (across from the Walton Motel) gets a lot of visitors and now is equipped with solar lighting and a blue stone walkway —- a good place to display your business cards or flyers. The kiosk at McDonald’s is locked; please leave information with Don Smith, manager, for posting.
As you have been previously informed, the chamber budgeted $5000 for a professional video, highlighting our Walton lifestyles. The initial viewing was at our booth during the Delaware County Fair, and received very positive comments from both visitors and Walton residents. Unfortunately a grant hasn’t been received but reapplication is in the process. When the video filming has been completed an invitation will be sent to members for a get-together and viewing.
In response to the many inquiries about the unlit Christmas tree at Wayne Bank: apparently there is a wiring problem which eluded our chamber members who braved the cold temperatures in a bucket truck trying to resolve the problem, unsuccessfully. Another effort will be made in the warmer weather.
How nice to see the American flag flying at the new Veterans’ Park on Delaware Street. This was the Chamber’s $1200 gift to our community — a welcome addition and very visible!
