Warm Winter Greetings to all Lovers of Grand Lake!

As we have promised here at the Chamber we have started the year off with valuable programs to help the businesses in the whole lake area.† The luncheon this Thursday featured a presentation from the Oklahoma Department of Tourism on the best uses of the internet to help your company grow and increase your market share.

†Watch for more great information to help our members work through the coming years.† If you are not a member of the Chamber now is a great time join and get on the wagon of success.

Speaking of Joining the Chamber we are approaching the date to have a listing the Grand Lake Area Chamber of Commerce business Directory.†

We will publish the directory in March this year with all of our business members in good standing.† This is great way for other members to find you easily and for folks moving to the lake or just visiting to find you and learn about your services.†

Donít be left on the side of the road when the Wagon Rolls By.

THE BUS IS FILLING UP!!

Yes, we already have over half the bus filled that will be leaving Langley @ 5:00 PM Wednesday the 4th of February to have a great Grand time at the Tulsa Boat Show.†

This trip includes your entry ticket to the show and fun, food and beverages in the Arrowhead Yacht Club balcony, all for only $35.00.†

There are a few sponsorships left if you would like to get exposure at the show and with all our Chamber members.† Call the office

Seven weeks is all that is left before Welcome Back Weekend, the beginning of the Season.† The first Poker Run of the year and the Chamberís Casino Night all at Cherokee Yacht Club is where this will all happen.

†What happened to Winter? Grand Lake Casino is the title sponsor for this event that will help the Chamber continue its good work throughout the year.†

What is a Total Resource Campaign?

This is a book of all the Chamber Sponsorship and Advertising opportunities for the entire year.†
