President’s Report – October 2018
It’s October! Bring out all things pumpkin spiced including lattes, pies, and candles! It’s crazy that we are at the last quarter of 2018! WOW! Time sure flies when you’re having fun! As we near the end of 2018, our Community Service Committee is asking for donations for our Holiday Toy and Cleaning Supply Drive. From October 1st to December 12th, drop off new, unwrapped toys and cleaning supplies to the Greater North County Chamber office to help families in need in our community for the 2018 Holiday season!
We want your creativity for our NOCO Scarecrow contest! Make your scarecrow funny, spooky, scary or goofy! Give us a call at the chamber office and we’ll come by and snap a picture! We’ll be asking the community via Facebook which scarecrow is their favorite and we’ll crown you the NOCO Scarecrow king or queen on Halloween! If you don’t have an office building, you are welcome to use our Chamber lawn! Call the office at 314-831-3500.
