Christmas Market & More
We made it through to fall - and the home town celebrations kick into high gear. Getting ready for family gatherings, company parties, and general end of the year fun, as a Chamber we hope that you will be encouraged to Think and Shop Local as much as you are able!
The DC Chamber’s Dolores County 2020 Calendar will be on sale shortly - it’s a fundraiser for the DC Chamber and a celebration of the beauty of our county. The $100 prize winner of the photo contest will have their photo on the cover and will be announced shortly.
Thanks to all of our local businesses that are members of the DC Chamber for their assistance with the Calendar project and all of our activities throughout the year.
One of my favorite new actions the DC Chamber has spearheaded, is a December Christmas Market - to be held on Saturday the 14th 12-3pm in collaboration with a range of local groups. The Chamber market offers vendors of arts and crafts to sell their wares by reserving a table. If you are a member the first table is free. Sign up by Nov. 15th to book a table for $10, thereafter up to Dec. 10th the table is $15. Space is limited. Forms are available online at DoveCreek-Chamber.com and at the post office lobby.
At the December Christmas Market the Community Voice will be featuring their Gingerbread House Contest - for this special fun community activity rules and details call 677-2897, and check out the entries during the event, the winners will be announced at 1pm.
Our local youth groups will be involved in creating a ‘hay ride’ and possibly other activities - we also encourage anyone with the desire to sing to generate a caroling group that could launch from the Community Center in the afternoon.
There will be a Holiday Lighting House Decorating contest again this year, sign up to be registered, a holiday gift basket will be awarded for the best residential and best commercial effort - judges are needed.
This Christmas Market is Your opportunity to spread some cheer and goodwill locally - if any area business or group is interested in adding to this event, please contact the DC Chamber 970-560-2856 or email manager@ dovecreekchamber.com we look forward to a wonderful end of the year celebration.
