Board of Trade co-sponsoring contest

The Greenwood Board of Trade gets ready for the Holiday season.

The Greenwood Board of Trade met in council chambers at City Hall on Wednesday, Nov. 12 with seven members and one guest present.

The Board of Trade and the city will be co-sponsoring a Christmas light contest with categories for both commercial and residential entries this year. The community itself will do the judging this year with ballot boxes placed at City Hall. Watch for posters.

There was discussion of developing a website for the Board of Trade.

The group is also planning a Shop Local campaign. The basic outline as it is taking shape would be to educate the public about the options available locally.

This Saturday, Nov. 29 at 5:30 p.m. the Board of Trade will host their annual Christmas tree light up in the parking lot beside McArthur parking lot. The next meeting will be on Wednesday, Dec. 10 at 7 p.m. in City Hall.
