Pumpkins, Shopping, and Santa!

The calendar says ‘fall’ yet I am still wearing summer clothes, running the air conditioner and hoping my mums and pumpkins don’t rot before Halloween! I hope you are enjoying this extended summer and taking advantage of the beautiful outdoor adventures we have right here in Fayette County. I have been walking the Shaw Wetlands and the bike path. It is nice to see the subtle fall changes each time I visit and I eagerly anticipate the changing colors! Below, you will see advertisements for the great events hosted by our members. There are many opportunities to start new traditions and make memories with your family and friends!

Mark your calendars – Small Business Saturday is Saturday, November 30th this year. Stay tuned for details on how the Chamber will celebrate and support its members!The tradition continues this year on December 1st as the Chamber of Commerce hosts the annual  Christmas Parade!  This year, World War II Veteran, Mr. Bob Estle will lead the parade as our Grand Marshal!  Our theme is ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ and we are excited to see the amazing entries you will create!  Details surrounding the additional activities of the day will be forthcoming, but parade entry forms are available now at the chamber office and will soon be available online at www.fayettecountyohio.com.

Enjoy the fall!
