What’s Happening in November 2016?

Small Business Saturday

Do your holiday shopping on Small Business Saturday and support our community in a big way!  Small Business Saturday is one of our favorite community events.  The Chamber Board has once again decided to support local businesses with payments towards shopper’s purchases . The smiles we see from store owners, and the shoppers, are what make this day stand out for us.  It’s always great to see so many people out shopping with loved ones, while supporting our local businesses. We hope to see you shopping in Hutchinson on November 26!

 

Businesses, this is your day to shine!  We want to help you with that.  Once again our Bring It Home Committee has some fun planned.
