CHAMBER MEMBER ADVERTISEMENTS
As we all know, this year has looked very different for our community and our students. We are working hard to make the Young Leaders program as memorable in a positive way as we can.
 
We are asking any of our community leaders and businesses for a little help here!
 
We have 25 Young Leaders we would like to gather items and create gift baskets for. Nothing huge or fancy just a little something to let them know the community supports them and is here for them.
 
If you have any items you would be willing to donate for this, please contact BETH as soon as possible as we would like to have these to the students before they go on Christmas break.
 
Thank you all for your support and participation in this program! Letting our youth have a way to connect with the community has always been important and letting them know the community is here to support them would be fantastic!
