Summer is here! While that means school break, family vacations, and summer hours to some, for the Chamber it means continuing to promote the Think Buy Local program by spreading the word about the “Shop BETHLEHEM” Gift Card, taking monthly trips to the Tuesday and Saturday Farmers Markets, and starting to plan the 31st Annual Golf Outing.
The “Shop BETHLEHEM” Gift Card is the most recent addition to the Think and Buy Local program. With Graduation Season upon us, the card makes a great gift for grads – available in any denomination from $5-$500, cards can be used just like cash at a variety of local businesses, including restaurants, retail stores, salons, service providers and more. The card highlights our local businesses and keeps revenue here in the Bethlehem community. Cards can be purchased online or in the Chamber office; visit bethlehemchamber.com for a full list of participating businesses.
Bethlehem is fortunate to have two successful Farmers Markets in town, and the Chamber represents its member businesses by staffing a table once a month at each market. Member businesses are encouraged to provide materials to the Chamber to be used at the markets, from brochures to flyers to promotional items. And if interested, member businesses can contact the Chamber at 439-0512 to schedule a date to join the Chamber table and represent their business in person.
Although September seems like a long way off, the 31st Annual Golf Outing is only two months away. Normanside Country Club will host the golf outing again this year, which will be held Monday, Sept. 19. Open to all, members and non-members are encouraged to register with a friend, relative, or co-worker. The day includes lunch in the banquet room, 18 holes of golf (with cart), use of practice facilities and locker rooms, bag drop service and dinner. There will be fun contests and a raffle to benefit two local non-profit organizations. Save the date for an afternoon of golf and an evening of networking!
