Sponsorship details:

You are responsible for decorating your table for eight place settings with an optional centerpiece that will be used as a door prize (all teachers are eligible). As a sponsor, we encourage you to sit at your table. Please let us know how many of you (non-teachers) will be sitting at the table. These place settings do not need to be decorated.

  • Decorations should be something that each teacher may take home with them. (Food and drink gift cards and chocolates are highly valued)
  • Dark blue table clothes are provided but, you are welcome to use your own.
  • Decorating times are August 7th, 1-8 pm, and Aug 8th, 9-11 am. The Building will be secured at all times.
  • Doors open for Teachers at noon. If you want to sit at your table, please be there by 11:45 am.

Chamber Members will also receive Logo on slide show advertisement.

If you are interested in sponsoring a table but don’t have the ability to decorate, contact us early and we should be able to arrange that service for you.

We also will gladly accept a donation such as a gift basket, item or even cash for a door prize if you choose not to sponsor a table.

Quarterly Chamber Membership Meeting

The program for the July 18th membership meeting will be presented by the Greenwood Economic Development Committee.  The Committee which is composed of the Mayor, several City Department heads and a number of citizens appointed by the Mayor will report to the Chamber membership on the progress of initiatives it has been working on for the past year.  Highlights will include a report from the Mayor on progress toward a traffic relief solution for Greenwood along with the Committee’s efforts to develop incentives for new businesses to locate in the city and future plans for infrastructure development.  This will also be a chance for business people to share their visions of the economic needs of the city with the Committee.

Please bring a guest and help introduce them to your Chamber. Lunch will be ready by 11:45 so you can get your meal and have time to visit with your fellow business people.

Meal service will start at 11:45 a.m.

The Citizen Newspaper

Our neighbor and Chamber member the Waldron Newspaper Group is trying to step in to fill the void left when the owners decided to stop the publication of the weekly Greenwood Democrat. The Waldron group is moving the Citizen into place as the weekly newspaper for Greenwood and South Sebastian County.

They have already produced two editions with Greenwood news and are gearing up to begin covering important events and news in the community. The paper is currently located in several spots around town and distribution boxes will be spreading soon. Check the photo below for a special subscription offer for Greenwood residents.
