Volunteer at Events
When you volunteer a couple hours of your time for a local event like 4th of July, the Midwest Musky Classic, or Maple Syrup Fest, you are helping that event succeed. Local events rely on dedicated volunteers to make all the pieces come together and the day go smooth. If you are interested in donating some of your time, please contact Chamber Director Sheila Schmidt. And don’t forget that volunteered hours can earn you a discount on your membership dues! Just make sure your time is recorded and logged to receive your discount!
