This is the season of thanks, and your Lincoln Area Chamber of Commerce certainly does have a great deal to be thankful for. Not only did the businesses and residents of Lincoln enthusiastically support this year’s Lincoln Showcase, making it one of our most successful fundraisers in the event’s history, but our friends at Turkey Creek Golf Course generously donated a portion of the proceeds from their annual Charity Golf Classic to the Chamber to benefit local businesses. Thank you, Turkey Creek Golf Course! We have more exciting events and activities coming up, so please mark your calendar to join us as we continue to Celebrate Lincoln and promote local businesses: The popular Annual Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting is Saturday, December 3rd. This year’s theme is Miracle on 5th Street, and we’re already smiling about the fun we know creative Lincolnites are going to have with this idea! Check for all the details, including time, route, and entry information. There will be no monthly breakfast in November, but pull out your festive holiday attire and make reservations for the December breakfast on Wednesday, December 7th where we’ll recap 2011, present the Chamber Vision for 2012, and select the three winners of the autographed guitars that have been featured in our 2011 Guitar Tour. What great Christmas presents one of these guitars would be for a special someone on your holiday gift list! And, yes, there’s still time to participate; please call the Chamber office for details. Business of the Year nomination forms will be mailed out soon, and the winners will be announced during the Annual Installation of Officers and Business Awards Breakfast on January 25th. We are sincerely grateful to all of you for your continued participation in the Lincoln Area Chamber of Commerce by supporting our mutual mission to attract, assist, retain and promote our members, helping to make Lincoln THE place to live and do business. Wishing you a delicious and bountiful Thanksgiving, Mark
