We understand the struggles that the pandemic has caused businesses and organizations this past year. Through 2020 we have rolled with the punches, as you have, and had to pivot more times than we can count. We canceled some of our events when it seemed appropriate, such as our spring craft fair and annual meeting, which were scheduled early on in the pandemic. We shifted our Farmers appreciation meal from a sit down meal with an aging population, to handing out frozen turkeys and all of the fixings for each farm family to make a wonderful meal at home. We also held some events, and let businesses and individuals decide what was right for them in choosing to participate or not. The Wine/Beer Walk in August not only sold as many tickets as the previous year, but brought people, money, and added visibility to the businesses that participated. The ATV run had record attendance this year as it was a way that people could get out and stay socially distanced.
We have also found ourselves busy writing letters for grant and PPE programs, adding resources to our website as they came in, and supporting businesses however we could. We are always open to way that we can help. Please reach to us to let us know what we can do for your business.
The New Lisbon Area Chamber of Commerce is proud of how our community came together in this past year. We look forward to helping support such a great community in the year ahead.
