Scavenger Hunt - April 1 is the start of the 5th Annual Scavenger Hunt. This year our hunters will be seeking blue pinwheels. How it works: We deliver the numbered pinwheels to participating businesses, then we send a business list home with the school kids. Then they find the pinwheels at the local chamber businesses, write the corresponding number on their form, and return it to the Chamber office by May 3rd. A winner will be drawn May 4th and he/she will receive a gift basket. Last year, we had a business that took advantage of the extra traffic and included their own gift basket for kids/parents to fill out an entry form for a chance to win. If you want more details on how your business might benefit from that, I'm happy to offer brainstorming ideas or answer any questions.
Also during April and into May, we will be doing some business highlights to help drive traffic to businesses with the bridge closure. Some ideas we have planned are Facebook live feeds from inside your business, sharing promotions or coupons on social media, "Where is the pinwheel" where we will give hints about a business to help hunters find the pinwheels, and of course, Picnic promotions for any business that signs up to sponsor the picnic during the month of April. More details about each of these will follow!
April 25th is our Admin Appreciation Day After Hours Networking from 5-7 at O'Riley's. Show your admins how much they are appreciated! We will have the flyer ready for that next week.
May 9th, we will hear from the US Chamber and the Ohio Chamber about Tax Reform. We are planning a luncheon at MVCTC for this event. Details will be available soon.
May 24th is Dayton Dragon's Networking Night with the chambers! We will have several suites and the party deck. $25 gets you a game ticket in the suites, dinner, 2 drink tickets and a great evening of networking. The flyer for that is attached - tickets need to be purchased by April 20th.
We are finalizing applications for the 68th Brookville Community Picnic and those will be out very soon. Sponsorship levels are available all the way up to $1000!
