Discover MI Town
This passport-style tour of businesses and organizations is designed to showcase the many wonderful restaurants, stores, and organizations we have in our community while supporting Chamber-related programs and services. The event will be held Saturday, October 24 from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM in downtown Independence and downtown Monmouth. Shuttle service will be available to transport participants as they “Discover MI Town!”
We invite ALL businesses and organizations, members and non-members, in our community to participate. Located beyond the downtown area? Don’t have a storefront? No problem! Sign up to have a booth within a participating downtown business. To register your business or to be a sponsor of this event, click the registration and sponsorship link. All completed forms must be received by 9/9/15.
Tickets will go on sale in September. A list of participating businesses and organizations will be posted after the registration deadline.
Chamber Chat is a series in partnership with WIMPEG, Western Oregon University, and the Monmouth-Independence Chamber of Commerce to provide our community an opportunity to get to know Chamber members beyond their business or organization. Filming of the series began August 2014 and continues monthly. Each episode includes three 10 minute conversations with three different Chamber members. If you are interested in participating in Chamber Chat, contact the Chamber office at 503-838-4268. To view the 2014 and 2015 playlists, click here.
