October was a busy month for the Chamber. We hosted ribbon cuttings for the new Casey’s store, the Good Samaritan Food Pantry, Al Dente Toffee and the new location of Anytime Fitness. Genesis Development also held an open house to showcase their new office and introduce the greater community to their services. I would like to thank the Chamber members, elected officials and general public who make these events successful.
Holiday Open House
Adel Partners will be hosting the 19th Annual Adel Holiday Open House on Friday, Dec. 6. This year’s theme is “Peppermint Twist.” The open house runs from 5 – 7 p.m. with recipe cards and samples at Chamber businesses, civic organizations and churches. The Adel Library will be hosting a variety of children’s activities during the open house, including visits with Santa, face painting with Mrs. Claus and balloons with Santa’s elf. Storefronts throughout Adel will be decorated for the holidays as part of the ninth annual storefront decorating contest. Strolling carolers will get everyone in the holiday spirit. The event concludes with the seventh annual lighted parade at 7:15 pm.
We hope you will join us to enjoy holiday treat samples at each participating business and collect the recipe cards. Watch for a list and map of participants in The Dallas County News the week of Nov. 25 – 29. You won’t want to miss this great annual kick off to the holiday season in Adel. If you are interested in participating or volunteering, please contact the Chamber at 993-5472 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Our programs and activities include business referrals, economic development, networking activities, tourism efforts, marketing opportunities, business recruitment and development, educational programs and regular communication to keep members abreast of Chamber and other member activities, business news and opportunities. Individuals and families can support Adel with membership in the Chamber as well. We are committed to increasing the quality of life in Adel and fostering local economic development.
