NORTH WEBSTER — North Webster-Tippecanoe Township Chamber of Commerce members learned invitations to the chamber’s holiday dinner and party had been mailed from committee member Stacey Cox, Pletcher Insurance. The information was presented at the regular monthly meeting held at noon Monday, Nov. 13, at the Tippecanoe Township Building.
All members and their guests including employees and significant others are welcome to attend Monday, Dec. 11, at the township building. Cost is $15 per person. Social time begins at 5:30 p.m. with dinner at 6 p.m. Please bring a dessert to share in the best dessert contest if you wish. A prize will be awarded. RSVP to Cox by calling (574) 834-3414 or sending an email to [email protected] by Friday, Dec. 1.
President Sue Ward, Sue’s Creations Floral & Gifts, presided at her last business meeting in that office. Board members voted to not follow up on the plans to landscape part of the property at the south edge of town near the intersection of SR 13 and Backwater Road. The consensus for those voting not to continue the project seemed to be neither the chamber nor the town of North Webster owned the property.
Business of the Month for November 2017 is Pletcher Insurance. The company is always ready to lend a hand with community events and allows Cox to serve on the board and volunteer for various chamber projects. It is much appreciated.
An ambassador committee was formed. Mindy Scaggs, ReMax-Lakes, will be the chairman with Martha Stoelting, The Papers, assisting. One more member is being asked to take part. The committee will welcome new businesses and arrange ribbon cutting events.
A new telephone with voicemail capabilities will be purchased for the chamber office in the Tippecanoe Township Building by Ward. Helen Leinbach, North Webster Community Public Library, had researched other possibilities and suggested going this route.
The membership agreed to have the chamber newsletter severed from the website so it can be done in a more professional manner. Tammy Waliczek, Dixie Haven Resort, volunteered to do the chamber newsletter and continue doing the chamber website, www.northwebster.com.
Ward announced the flower pots are in storage and the chamber’s six downtown benches will be left outside for the winter. The group agreed the time for the chamber’s Nativity scene to go up and the town Christmas tree on Pilcher Shoes lawn to be lit is after Thanksgiving.
The board voted to purchase all new lights for the town tree. Incoming president Jim Smith, Loose Moose Motorsports and Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department, will check about getting the lights installed.
The next business meeting of the chamber will be noon Monday, Jan. 8, at the Tippecanoe Township Building, 102 S. Morton St.
