SandBoxBlogs: Delta County Independent "Paonia Chamber opens office"

News Release:
"The Paonia Chamber of Commerce has announced the official opening of their office at 124 Grand Avenue in downtown Paonia.

To celebrate, the chamber will host a special "Business After Hours" block party on
Friday, May 4, from 5-7 p.m. which will include the seasonal opening of Ollie's Ice Cream.

"Our office is just one of the investments the chamber has recently made to promote both local business and to serve our many visitors to the area," chamber president Alexis Halbert said. "The entire front room of the office is a display area where chamber members can advertise their businesses and services."

Chamber members are asked to provide business cards, posters, advertisements and products to display in the office. In addition to the wall display areas, there is a special area devoted to larger displays that can feature local products or whatever larger items businesses would like to share. Contact board member Ulli Lange at 527-3185 or at uolange@hotmail.com to be included and take advantage of this advertising opportunity.

"You will also soon notice new bright blue 'i' information signs on Highway 133 leading visitors into town, as well as one above the door at the office," Halbert said. "We will be keeping regular hours from the May 4 opening through the summer and are looking for volunteers on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to staff the office."

Chamber members are beginning preparations for this year's Cherry Days activities which will start on Wednesday, July 4, with the traditional parade and celebration in town park. Festivities will continue on Friday, July 7, with Downtown Days from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., followed by music, crafts, and fun in the park through Sunday afternoon. For more information on how to participate in Downtown Days, e-mail Halbert at alexishalbert@gmail.com or leave a message at the chamber office, 527-3886.

To volunteer for Cherry Days contact the chamber office by phone or e-mail."
