Happy Easter! The Wilber Area Chamber of Commerce is grateful to the many Wilber area businesses and individuals who are members of the chamber organization. It is a pleasure to work with a group who wants to make Wilber even better. Hats off to the membership committee of Twila Wanek and John Brickner for their zest and energy on the committee. Please “Shop Wilber” as much as possible as we are fortunate to have a fine business district and want to keep it that way.
Unfortunately we all know of individuals who are dealing with poor health. If you are able, please try to support these folks in upcoming fund raisers or by getting them some “Chamber Bucks”. Kay Sukovaty at Kalkwarf and Smith Law Office can help with any Chamber Buck denomination you may need to purchase. Remember the Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 19 at the Wilber Legion Park. The next weekend is busy with the Wilber-Clatonia Elementary Carnival on Friday evening, April 25th and Prom will be held on Saturday, April 26th. The Chamber provides funds to promote these events.
The 2nd Annual Garage Sale Trail will take place on May 2 and 3. Communities included on the trail are: Clatonia, DeWitt, Plymouth, Western, Swanton and Wilber. Last year, guests from five states were represented along the trail. If you are interested in holding a garage sale, call Wilber Chairman, Heidi Pospisil, 402-239-6111 to get your residence on the map for only $5.00. This is an inexpensive advertising fee. The Garage Sale Trail committee spends hundreds of dollars in advertising expense to promote this worthwhile event across the state. If you don’t have a garage, you can bring your merchandise to Sokol Hall and rent tables for $10.00 each for the event.
Don’t forget to get your favorite recipe to the Wilber Care Center before May 1 for their new cookbook.
The Wilber Chamber of Commerce encourages residents of our community to take part in the Fourth of July Celebration at the Wilber Care Center on Wednesday, July 2, 2014. This is a great 4th of July event. Invite your neighbors or friends and come to the Care Center for a good meal and a evening of fine entertainment for everyone. Along with polka music, a special grand stand musical performance will take place, followed by fireworks. Invite a neighbor and come to the south lot of the Wilber Care Center for a hometown 4th of July event. Thanks to the downtown flower box committee for sprucing up downtown with the lovely barn quilt squares in each flower box. Welcome Spring!
