July 14th 5:00-6:15pm
I hope you all are well and getting ready for our holiday weekend, parade, and endless events going on around Reedsport. I attached the meeting notes from our most recent meeting. The Board will have to meet on June 16th to approve the Façade Improvement Applications. Unfortunately, this means we would have to move our Promotion Committee meeting to another night. Since Wednesday, the 17th, is the Chamber after hours, would everyone be able to meet Thursday the 18th at 5:00pm? If not, we could move the meeting to the week before? What are your thoughts?
After our discussion on the Chainsaw event and selling merchandise, there were concerns about the success of selling wooden nickels, wooden bears, or a main street token, and the amount of time to produce/print this item prior to the event. From past Chamber experience, keychains and other small promotional items did not sell. Since we are very short on time prior to the event and don’t have a meeting for a few weeks, I wanted to throw another option out there. With the $267, could we purchase a few more colorful t-shirts that have the Main Street Logo and in an assortment of sizes? We currently have a few, but are limited in sizes. This way, we could push an assortment at the event, and thereafter place them in stores like Reedsport Natural Foods and Jitterbug N Java. Just a thought since it would take only a few days to print, it is local, and there is demand for it outside of the event. Please let me know what your thoughts are and if you want to weigh in on any merchandise/promotional item the committee buys to turn a small profit for future projects. The ball is in your court.
