The deadline to drop off promotional products and materials at the Livingston-Polk County Chamber of Commerce office for the new teacher goodie bags is July 14. This is an annual project of the chamber and it’s also an opportunity for local businesses and service providers to promote themselves. A variety of promotional products are placed in the bags, including pens, pencils, rulers, nail files, notepads, coupons, flyers and other items and information.
“You are welcome to start bringing any goodies you may have for the new teacher bags. We will need 175 of each of the items for the bags no later than July 14. Schools are starting earlier this year,” Chamber President/CEO Yvonne L. King said.
The next “Power Hour” with the chamber is slated for 8-9 a.m. Tuesday at The Bull Shack. Enjoy a cup of coffee, bring your business cards, mix and mingle and make new friends and contacts.
There are two upcoming ribbon cutting ceremonies that will be held at the chamber office. One for Sheri Clamon Allstate Insurance is slated for 1:30 p.m.
Wednesday and one for Worthy Soft Wash is slated for 10:30 a.m. Thursday.
The next quarterly membership meeting is scheduled for June 28 at Cho-Yeh Camp & Conference Center. Polk County Emergency Management Coordinator Courtney Comstock will be the guest speaker. Reserve a seat by contacting the chamber at 936-327-4929 or by making a reservation on the chamber’s website at polkchamber.com. Door prizes will be available.
The chamber is also gearing up for the 3rd annual Smoke in the Pines Barbecue Cookoff June 24-25 at Pedigo Park. In addition to the barbecue cookoff, there will also be an auto and bike show, a kids cookoff, a cornhole tournament and vendors.
“Please check out the chamber’s calendar on our website for upcoming events and activities. It is free to add all your events to the calendar,” King said, adding, “I ask you, ‘What can the chamber do for you today?’”
