Lassen County Chamber of Commerce Weekly Update

Monday, November 25th, 2019

Patti Hagata, Executive Director

Plan to ‘Shop Small, Saturday, November 30th. The Lassen County Chamber of Commerce will be hosting our first, ‘Small Business Saturday.’ Small Business Saturday began 10 years ago and is sponsored by American Express. The nationwide event, held the Saturday after Thanksgiving, strives to promote small, locally owned, brick and mortar businesses across the United States.

Chamber members can participate in this event at no charge. The Chamber will provide the materials and guidelines – all you have to do is be open and ready for business. The Chamber office will serve as the ‘Welcome Station,’ providing refreshments and guidance to shoppers. We will have a list of participating businesses that will serve as a shopping guide. Shoppers pick up a ‘Passport’ at either the Welcome Station, or at participating merchants. When a shopper stops by the participating business, they will receive a unique stamp in their passport. If a shopper collects at least five stamps, they will be entered in a drawing for a gift valued at over $100.00. Contact the Chamber at 257-4323 if you would like to participate.

The fate of our economic vitality lies with healthy small businesses – working together, we can ensure that our businesses flourish, and our community members understand the importance of supporting those who support their community. Small Business Saturday is just the beginning of what will be an extended campaign educating our shoppers and providing them with a ‘Passport to our Community’.

Mark your calendar to attend the 14th Annual Magical Country Christmas Celebration that will be held on Saturday, December 7th, 5pm to 7pm, in Historic Uptown Susanville. The celebration includes musical entertainment, Christmas Parade, Toys for Tots drive, and fireworks to ring in the Christmas season. Main Street will be closed to thru traffic during the celebration. This is a fun filled event for the whole family. Christmas Parade and vendor entry forms are available at the Chamber office or by logging on to www.lassencountychamber.org .

The Chamber will be ordering 2020 Labor Law Posters which feature all required federal and state notices on one poster. They will be available for sale to Chamber members for $30 each or non-member for $40 per poster. California employers and businesses are required to post updated employment posters at each place of business.  Contact the Chamber office staff at 257-4323 if you would like to have a poster ordered for your business.

From all of us at the Lassen County Chamber of Commerce may you have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving.
