School Days Are Coming!
Well the kids are getting sad, school is set to start this month. To help kick off the new school year, the Frederick Chamber is organizing and helping to sponsor the annual Teacher’s Appreciation Luncheon on Wednesday August 15th. Sponsors are needed to help this annual event be a success this year and will allow us to treat the teachers to a great lunch, and to award prizes in the form of Chamber Bucks. Sponsorship levels are Bronze ($25), Silver ($50), Gold ($100), and Platinum ($150 or more). Sponsors will be recognized on the radio, in this column and at the luncheon itself. Please contact the Chamber office at 580-335-2126 to become a sponsor, and thank you!!
