Dear members,

It has been an amazing year! Getting out of the whole COVID-19 mentality a was a challenge, not only for our Chamber but for our businesses as well. This year all our members supported so many community events, and without your support some of these events could not have taken place. So, thank you for all your support! We hope that providing you support helped promote your business in one way or another.

This year the Chamber was able to secure a new location, we have relocated since September. Since the move, we have been able to revitalize our chamber services to our members. By increasing partnerships with our local organizations there has been an increase in community events and activities. Here are a few of the events: •108th Annual Awards Ceremony (Recognizing our 2019 Awardees) Sunset Memorial Day Ceremony-Partnered with City of Lindsay Military Banner Program-Partnered with the City of Lindsay Police and Fire Pancake Fundraiser (Raised $8k+Partnership with former Mayor Ramona Caudillo and Council

To continue to provide much needed services to our members we have decided to change our membership pricing. We are now offering tier levels to members. Each tier level will provide many different services. Membership funds goes towards ensuring that our Chamber continues to keep its location and provide the much-needed services to our members and community.

Here are some of the events, workshops, networking opportunities:

  • 109th Annual Awards Ceremony- January 28th, 2023
  • Fire Safety Workshop
  • Quarterly Business Watch Meetings
  • Saint Patrick’s Day Brewfest- March 18th, 2023
  • Box Cart Derby- Partnered with the OBF Committee
  • “The Game of Life” for our Lindsay High School Seniors-Late April
  • Quarterly Pop-Up Event- Increasing networking opportunities.
  • Midsummer Gala- Mid June

There will be more updates throughout this year. We are excited about the changes that have been made this last year and we are hoping to continue to expand our Chamber services for our member. If you have any questions about the tier levels or events that you would like to sponsor, please do not hesitate to call the office, or stop by and check out our new location.
