Operation Thank You returns
A popular one-day volunteer event will return in January, after a several year hiatus. The 28th annual Operation Thank You event will take place on Thursday, January 19, 2023. Led by the members of the Chamber’s Diplomat Committee, approximately 250 volunteers will visit Chamber member businesses and deliver a membership decal.
“The Operation Thank You event has been such a great event for the Chamber for 27 consecutive years. We took a pause from it over the past few years, but we’re back and excited to continue this tradition,” said Event Chair Christy Menning, McCrossan Boys Ranch. “This is a great opportunity for volunteers to meet Chamber members in their place of business and learn more about what they do. Personally calling on each local member is a chance for us to show our appreciation to them for being part of the Chamber family.”
“This is a great opportunity for volunteers to meet Chamber members in their place of business and learn more about what they do.”
Volunteers will start the day at a kick-off breakfast, where they will receive their assignments and materials. Teams of 5-6 people will work together to visit all their assigned member businesses over the course of the day. Volunteers will regroup at 4:30 p.m. for a wrap celebration, including door prizes.
As part of Operation Thank You, each member will receive the 2023 Chamber member decal, a thank you note from Chamber leadership, and an invitation to participate in a member feedback survey.
Menning stated, “We encourage member businesses to proudly display the decal on their entry doors to let everyone know they are committed to the success of our community and are part of the unified voice in creating the best environment to live, work & grow.”
