CENTENNIAL TIME CAPSULE / BUSINESS PROFILE
Have you submitted your Business Profile and/or Time Capsule items?
As part of the Alliance Area Chamber of Commerce 100th Anniversary Celebration, we are assembling a time capsule to be opened 50 years from now in the chamber's 150th anniversary. All Chamber members are encouraged to submit an item to be included in the capsule that represents their business and / or provides a snapshot of their company as it is today!
The time capsule will be a feature of the 100th Anniversary Celebration to be held in downtown Alliance on August 21, 2015. That evening, all items will be displayed and the time capsule will officially be sealed.
Submissions will be accepted through June 30, 2015. Items can be dropped off at the Chamber office at 210 E. Main St.
For more information, contact the Alliance Area Chamber of Commerce at 330-823-6260.
100th Anniversary Chamber "Stock Certificates" available for purchase
During the Annual Meeting the Chamber launched the sale of "stock certificates," an effort that was originally undertaken in 1915 as a way for area business owners to invest in the initial establishment of the Chamber. A century later, the celebration provides an opportunity to recreate this initial support campaign and raise critical funds to support the events of the year.
We hope that you - as individuals and as businesses - will choose to support this initiative by purchasing a "stock certificate" for $100. By doing so, you will be directly supporting the events and efforts associated with the 100th Anniversary celebration.
You can order your stock certificate by calling or emailing the Chamber office with the name as you want it on the certificate and your payment information.
