Community Involvement

The Plattsburg Chamber strives to partner with community individuals, organizations, businesses and volunteers in order to create a thriving, growing, and enjoyable environment for the town and those who live in it. 
 

 Events
 
To see a complete list of past winners, check out the banquet details on the link to the right.
In order to recognize the hard work of community volunteers, teachers and other individuals within various organizations, the Chamber holds an annual Recognition and Awards Banquet each spring. Without these volunteers, none of the following events would be possible.
For the convenience of our visitors and  townspeople during the city-wide garage sales event, the Chamber organizes and provides a free list and location map of all the sales, which is displayed on the web and distributed throughout the town at various locations.

When it comes to Christmas, the Chamber is fortunate to have many big lovers of the Christmas season in its midst. Back in 2007, the Chamber brought back one of it's old traditions by having Santa come to town so children could have their picture taken with him. The pictures and other activities provided were completely free. Through the efforts of the Chamber, the event has continued to grow each year and now includes a full day of festivities, along with a home and business decorating contest.
Watermelon, ice-cream and water are just a few of the 4th of July refreshments Chamber volunteers have provided and handed out for free to the community  before the big fireworks display.

The Fall Festival, one of Plattsburg's biggest events, was originally under the Chamber umbrella but over the years it has grown to be its own committee and organization.  At present, Chamber members still help volunteer for, advertise and promote many of the events, including sponsorship of the Silent Auction, and selecting Plattsburg's "Person of the Year."

Support
Not only does the Chamber give of it's time, but when possible it donates money to other organizations to show their community support. The Summer Reading Program, Plattsburg's High School Prom committee, and the Civil War Battle of Plattsburg were just a few recipients of the Chamber's generosity.   Plattsburg's Tour of Churches and Fall Festival are among the many organizations that benefit from the Chamber's effort in advertising; while the Pony Express (in St. Joseph) and the Highway 36 Project are organizations the Chamber supports and belongs to as members.  
Members  New Businesses 
For members, the Chamber works hard to keep the lines of communication open.  There are many benefits to being a Chamber member, such as the monthly luncheon meetings  (including 4 quarterly breakfasts), and The Chamber Exchange (a monthly newsletter), which features a different business once a month, to name just a few. The business features are included both on the website and in the newsletter.  
New businesses in town can look forward to the Chamber's Ribbon Cutting ceremony, as well as their picture in The Leader, Plattsburg's local newspaper. 

The Chamber's volunteers work tirelessly throughout the year doing many tasks and these examples are just a few of the ways the Chamber is at work for the community. Without our membership and volunteers none of these things would be possible.
