Chamber Holiday Mixer
Tis the season to celebrate the yule season! Join us Thursday, December 15 from 5:30-7:30pm at the Waybury Inn for a festive night of cheer and great food sponsored by the Waybury Inn. As always, casual conversation in small breakout groups, door prizes, and our Pot of Gold drawing. Ugly sweaters and other festive attire encouraged (though not required).
The Addison County Chamber of Commerce will be hosting our annual Toy Drive at the Holiday Mixer to support HOPE's Holiday Shop. Every December, HOPE runs a free Holiday Shop, where low-income parents can select toys, games, and books for their children. Without this program, many local children would receive few, if any, gifts at the holidays.
You can participate in the Chamber’s Toy Drive by bringing an unwrapped gift to the mixer. For each donated toy or gift card, you'll receive one additional raffle ticket.
Check out HOPE's website or their wish list below for items needed for the Holiday Shop. Gift cards, in $30 to $50 increments would be most helpful for teens, but anything is welcomed and much appreciated!
This year, some of the things on their wish list are:
- Games - Hedbanz, In a Pickle, Rebellion, Would You Rather, Soggy Doggy, Count Your Chickens
- Activities - Crayola Sketcher Projector, Doctor Dreadful Alien Autopsy Playset, Play-Do sets, Activity Books, Art Supplies, Science Kits, Craft Kits
- Electronics - string lights, headphones, earbuds, wireless speakers
