Community Christmas Parade & Tree Lighting Celebration
You’re cordially invited to attend our upcoming Chamber of Commerce monthly luncheon and annual Holiday Auction on Tuesday, December 4th. This is a very special event where we auction off dozens of beautiful Christmas wreaths from businesses across Pulaski County. We will also be auctioning off center pieces, table toppers and will be conducting a silent auction during the luncheon. This year’s auction promises to be better than ever! Proceeds from the 2018 Somerset-Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce Holiday Auction goes toward college scholarships for “Local High School Students” to attend Somerset Community College. Last year’s auction was a huge success, bringing in almost $17,000. Over the past eight years, the Chamber of Commerce has raised over $90,000 from this annual auction. Folks, this event is a blast and not like most of our traditional luncheons. Please consider attending and supporting a great cause. As always, the luncheon will be held at The Center for Rural Development and will begin at 12:00 (Noon).
