Every Monday there are two new messages that go up on our marquee. They are put up by the city rain or shine (which we greatly appreciate). Placing a message on the marquee is an excellent and inexpensive way to advertise your business.
- Chamber Membership Discount: $40 per sign
- Non Chamber Member: $60 per sign
Each message can contain up to 5 lines/ 20 spaces per line for your message. Please plan on reserving the standard marquee signs a couple months in advance. (They go fast!)
Every Monday five messages go up on our shiny new digital marquee board. Ads are guaranteed to rotate no less than 30 times in a hour time frame. Did you know that over 19,000 cars pass by our digital marquee within a 24 hour period?
- Chamber Membership Discount: $50 per ad space
- Non Chamber Member: $70 per ad space
Some ideas for use of the marquees are new business openings, seasonal specials, upcoming events, open houses… The ideas are endless!
Each month the Chamber hosts a luncheon and offers a sponsorship opportunity to a Chamber Member. The sponsor is recognized on the marquee and The Morning News advertisement, and on the printed program handed out at the lunch. Sponsors are given 10 minutes to address the lunch group and may choose the guest speakers for the program. Sponsors are allowed to place brochures, literature, or information products on the dining tables.
Trade Table Sponsor
These tables are offered to Chamber Members and charitable or fundraising organizations
during the monthly luncheon. A sponsor is given a banquet-style table in which they can
promote their business through visual aids, literature, product trials, raffles, or other means as approved by the Chamber. Trade Tables are set up 30 minutes prior to the luncheon and remain in place until the conclusion of the program. Each sponsor is allowed about 1 minute during the lunch program to promote their business.
Once per month, the Chamber hosts an After Hours event and offers a sponsorship opportunity to a Chamber Member. After Hours is an open-house style gathering held in the evening where a Member may promote their business or services. The Chamber offers advertising and promotion through e-postcard invitations, email, social media, print media (including the monthly newsletter), and television and radio spots when possible. The Chamber staff is available to offer assistance and ideas to the sponsor as needed. The After Hours sponsor must be a member in good standing and must provide door prize(s), refreshments and beverages, and their logo for advertising purposes. The sponsor may choose to conduct a program with speakers or visual aids, or may opt for an open house/social interaction style event.
Chamber Gift Certificate Program
This program is only available for “buy-in” to Chamber Members. The program is designed to generate more business for participating members. The participating member’s name and logo is listed on the certificate. Chamber member or non-member businesses and individuals may purchase gift certificates in any amount from the Chamber to give away or to use for their own purposes. The recipient of the gift certificate may redeem it at any one of the participating member businesses listed. When a certificate is redeemed, the participating member returns the used certificate to the Chamber for reimbursement.
Cost: $30 annually

The Chamber offers a red-ribbon cutting for all new Chamber businesses or organizations. The Chamber will invite the local media to take a picture and run a short article in the local newspaper. Businesses that have done remodeling, moved locations, or made a significant change to their business plan may also consider having a red-ribbon cutting event to highlight the new changes to their business.
Cost: Free for Chamber Members
