Supporting businesses and the community in working together to make Grand Ledge
a great place to live and do business
Our last community event of 2019 is the Night Lights Christmas Parade, Tree Lighting and Festivities on Friday December 6th! The Rotary Club is hosting a chili cookoff and Sun Theatre will be showing a Christmas Movie.
Starting around 5pm that night, we will be roasting marshmallows around a fire pit in Bridge Street Plaza. Join us for some toasty fun and a front row seat as Mayor Thom flips the switch to turn the Christmas Tree lights on this year!
If you want your business to walk or ride in the parade, be sure and sign up! We have more than 50 groups already scheduled to participate. Thank you to our sponsors Aire Serv Heating and Air Conditioning, Auto Owners Insurance, Myers Plumbing and Heating, Nick Cypher Farm Bureau Insurance and Sundance Chevrolet. Click here to sign up for the parade!
Wednesday December 11th is our next monthly chamber breakfast meeting.
The Grand Ledge Country Club is hosting our holiday gathering in their clubhouse.
There will be a warm fire and lots of fresh baked breakfast items!
Make plans to join us at 9am at the Country Club at 5811 E Saint Joe Hwy to network with fellow chamber members!
Thank you to all our $2000 and up sponsors for 2019. We could not bring the events to the community without your generous support of the Grand Ledge Chamber of Commerce!
Keep an eye on our Facebook page for some fun year in review stories in December. You will see where we went in 2019, our accomplishments and growth throughout the year!
Thank you to each and every one of our 229 chamber members and 65 companies who sponsored all of our community events in 2019!
