Decorating Downtown

0

With various holidays coming up, members of the chamber have decided to make things more festive this year with more decorations.

Shirley Ackerman and Sue Shoemaker decorated various corners and islands in the downtown St. Maries with festive fall items. Hay bales, scarecrows and cornstalks can be seen set up along Main Avenue.

Sue Shoemaker and Shirley Ackerman helped decorate downtown Main Avenue in festive fall decorations. They hope to inspire businesses and other offices to do the same.

The two chamber officers are also working toward better decorations for the winter season. The chamber is collecting donations to help light up the downtown area for Christmas. Donations can be delivered to city hall or the chamber office.

“We have been decorating the Department of Labor office for years and since several other businesses and offices have joined us in celebrating the various holidays,” Mrs. Ackerman said. “It just adds to the atmosphere and we really enjoy it and think others do as well. We have gotten lots of positive feedback over our fall decorations.”

As the night comes earlier, chamber organizers look toward finalizing plans for the annual Christmas in St. Maries Celebration. This year’s event is Saturday, Dec. 6.

Vendors, businesses and organizations are invited to participate in the festivities with a booth on Main Avenue during the day, or with a float in the lighted parade.

Call the chamber office at (208) 245-3563 for additional information on how to participate. The office has switched to winter hours and is open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday. The manager may also be reached by email at manager@stmarieschamber.org.
