Congratulations to all of the 2018 Wilber-Clatonia graduating seniors! We hope that you had a great day and wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors!
The Wilber Area Chamber of Commerce would like to let everyone know about all of the great things going on this summer. We have brought back some of our popular events and added a new one. Make sure you mark your calendars for all of these great events!
On June 2nd, Sokol Hall in Wilber will be hosting the Wilber-Clatonia Alumni Banquet. The Wilber Area Chamber of Commerce will be doing our 1st Annual Poker Run on June 1st for all of you that will be coming back to town and for all others that would like to join us!
Registration will begin at the Wilber Legion Park at 6:30pm. The Legion will have their Legendary Legion Burgers available for purchase. Fritz’s Bar & Grill and Fox Hole Tavern will also have food for purchase. The poker run will officially start at 7:00pm. The cost to participate is $20.00 for one hand per person (not per team) with the option to purchase a second hand for $5.00. Participants can also pre-register and get the second hand at no cost by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We encourage all of our participants to shop local throughout the poker run. Chamber bucks will be given as prizes to the top three hands. Prizes will be 1st – $150, 2nd – $75, and 3rd – $50. Winners will be drawn at approximately 10:30pm at Fox Hole Tavern and will be based on standard 5-card poker hand rankings. We would like to give a HUGE thank you to our four sponsors of this event, Fox Hole Tavern, The American Legion Louis-Milan Post 101, T.J. Sokol (Wilber) and Fritz’s Bar & Grill. Without your participation this event would not be possible.
On July 1st, the Wilber Care Center will be hosting their annual Community Barbecue and Fireworks. This is always a well-attended event with music and entertainment for all ages. Bring the whole family out and enjoy the festivities!
Starting on June 1st, tickets will be available for our Annual Vehicle raffle. This year the vehicle will be a 2018 Chevrolet Equinox LS. Only 375 tickets are sold so get them while they last. Tickets will be available at the Wilber Republican, Barnas Drug, First State Bank, Farmers and Merchants Bank, Wilber Body Shop, Frank’s Smokehouse and Wilber Plumbing, Heating & Air.
All of you smoking extraordinaires, fire up your smoker’s as we plan to have the Pork In The Park barbecue cook-off and meal again this year! It will be on August 25th at the Legion Park in Wilber. We are still fine-tuning the details of this event but can assure you it will be a fun filled day! Follow us on Facebook for updates and more details.
Last but not least, the Wilber Area Chamber of Commerce hopes that everyone has a safe Memorial Day weekend.
