The Norwalk Area Chamber of Commerce would like to remind our citizens to shop locally this holiday season. For those quick little gifts or stocking stuffers, the Chamber office has Chamber bucks that may be purchased and are good at several Norwalk Chamber member businesses.
The Christmas tree lighting event held the Sunday after Thanksgiving was another success, and the little kids loved seeing Santa arrive via the Norwalk firetruck. Thank you to David Lester for organizing this event this year.
The Norwalk Area Chamber of Commerce’s next event is the Annual Holiday Luncheon for Chamber members held at Fellowship Community Church on Thursday, Dec. 13. This event is always well attended and gives the city a chance to reflect on the past year and talk to the Chamber members on some of its goals for next year. We also get to hear from school representatives and the Chamber president. Thank you to City State Bank for sponsoring this luncheon and for Fellowship Community Church for hosting us.
The Norwalk Area Chamber of Commerce, the City of Norwalk and the Norwalk Community Schools will be the hosts for the 25th anniversary of the Chinese Association of Iowa’s new year’s celebration Feb. 2. Look for details in your Norwalk Living magazine in the upcoming issues. We are asking the public’s help in volunteers. So if you are available Friday, Feb. 1 or Saturday, Feb 2, please contact the Chamber office at 981-0619 for a time slot.
There are also sponsorship opportunities, and Norwalk businesses can set up a table at the event for just $50. Non-profits in Norwalk may have a table for free. Outside of the Norwalk area, a table can be yours for $100; non-profits $50. Contact the Norwalk Area Chamber of Commerce at 981-0619 for details.
We would like to wish all of Norwalk a herry Christmas and a happy, prosperous new year.
