CHAMBER PLANS CENTENNIAL CELEBRATIONS

The Alliance Area Chamber of Commerce will kick off its 100th Anniversary celebration this month with the unveiling of a new logo and a full calendar of events that will span the year of 2015. The schedule includes a handful of special celebrations in addition to the incorporation of the 100th Anniversary into annual traditions. Some of the highlights include a time capsule, Support a Chamber Business days and various giveaways throughout the year. In addition, the Chamber's official anniversary, August 21, will be marked by the unveiling of a mural, closing of the time capsule and concert featuring the John Hampu Band.

Chamber members will have ample opportunity to support the celebration throughout the year. One such avenue will be through the sale of "stock certificates," an effort that was originally undertaken in 1915 as a way for area business owners to invest in the initial establishment of the Chamber. A century later, the celebration provides an opportunity to recreate this initial support campaign and raise critical funds to support the events of the year.

The 100th Anniversary celebration will also be a highlight of a number of annual Chamber events including the Annual Chamber Dinner, Golf Outing and Business Alliance Awards, among others.

The celebration has been planned by a subcommittee of the Marketing Committee of the Chamber including Amanda Dias, Melissa Gardner, Jeff Kaplan, Mark Locke, Debbie Reho and Kyle Yarian. The effort has been supported by three student interns, all history majors, from the University of Mount Union, and Chris Cugini and Abbey Rogers from Channel 11.

The new logo was selected by the membership through a survey that was emailed to our members in October.
