Column: A Chamber Christmas toast
ESCANABA — We take this opportunity in the last Daily Press business page article before Christmas, to thank our waterfront community for helping us with the many endeavors and projects of the past year. We would never have accomplished what we did without your dedication and support. We know that the Chamber is successful because of you.
So, whether you are reading this at home or in the office, enjoy another cup of coffee, toast yourself and accept our best wishes for a wonderful Christmas holiday surrounded by good friends and family. To you, we offer this Chamber Christmas toast.
Santa’s on schedule
Member stores are stocked
Providing exceptional service
For that, we’re not shocked.
And now as the Christmas elves
Continue shopping in our town
We offer up this Chamber toast
So, pass your cups around.
First, dearest members
To you a prosperous year
With your renewed support
Our Chamber has nothing to fear.
Next, Ambassadors and volunteers
We wish you peaceful rest
You’ve earned it because this past year
You’ve given us your best.
And for our generous sponsors
A special Yule salute
The funding you provided allowed
Our events to bear fruit.
And finally, to our local shoppers,
Who didn’t travel far and wide
You boost our local economy
And enhance our Chamber pride.
The Chamber team commends you all
Because, you see, we feel
You’ve kept the community shining
With all your hard work and zeal
A great waterfront community
Is reason enough to boast
So, raise your cups to Christmas
With this Chamber Christmas toast!
May your Christmas and New Year be filled with happiness and joy.
