We have some exciting things happening on the Chamber front this spring that we cannot wait to share! On May 1st, we are changing the look of our Chamber Bucks and making them even easier for you to purchase. Currently Chamber Bucks resemble monopoly money, with each color representing a different denomination. Starting May 1st, the Chamber Bucks will be in check form and can be purchased at Kalkwarf & Smith Law Office (basement of Farmers & Merchant Bank) and at First State Bank. Except for the look, there will be no change to you as the purchaser. When you purchase the Chamber Bucks, you will be provided a list of Chamber Members that accept the bucks as payment as you always have.
On May 4th and 5th, the Wilber Chamber will once again be hosting the Wilber Community Garage sales. Sales will start on May 4th at 7:00a.m. and will open for business through dusk that day. They will continue on May 5th, starting at 7:00a.m. and will conclude at 2:00p.m. Maps will be available on our website and at Casey’s General Store, Shop Qwik and Food Mesto. There is still time to get on the map if you are having a sale. Please contact Dee Drake at 402.239.3679 to register. The cost to be on the map is $5.00.
Just in time for Alumni weekend, we have a new event this year. On June 1st, we will be having our first annual Polka Poker Run. The poker run will start at The American Legion in Wilber. They will have their legendary legion burgers available before everyone starts out on their trek around town. Fox Hole Tavern will serve as the last stop on the run. The Chamber would like to thank the American Legion Louis-Milan Post 101 and The Fox Hole Tavern for serving as the main sponsors of this event. This will be a chance for all of you returning home to catch up with old classmates and see the changes to some of the local haunts. There will also be some great prizes for the winners! Follow us on Facebook and our website to for more details to come!
We would also like to congratulate Stephanie Krivohlavek and Carli Israelson on the grand opening of their joint venture, The Mind Body Center, where we celebrated them with a ribbon cutting last Friday, April 20th. Best of luck to the two of you!
