The members of the Mansfield Chamber of Commerce met on Wednesday and discussed several orders of business.
First, the upcoming chili/bean supper, which will be a fundraiser for the upcoming Christmas parade. It is scheduled to take place Saturday, October 20 from 5-7 p.m., at the Mansfield Senior Center. The cost of the meal, plus dessert is $5. Just Us will be performing.
Second on the agenda was the Christmas Parade. A few clubs, such as the tractor and corvette, have expressed concern over the prospect of a night parade. Additionally, the safety and lighting issues that could be problematic. Ultimately, members decided on hosting separate events, the traditional Christmas parade to be held on the first Saturday in December and at another date, the Christmas Tree lighting.
Lastly, members voted on the theme for this year’s parade. It will be “No Place Like Home.” Parade Marshalls are Francie and Alex Cunningham, in honor of longtime Chamber Member, Jim Cunningham.
