Here at the Perham Area Chamber, we put on a few events throughout the course of the year. Some are for fun, others are to fundraise. Here is a little bit about each of the events and how you can get involved!
Annual Chamber Golf Scramble - Each May, we have our annual golf scramble. It is one of our main fundraisers, and it is a fun day of gathering our members to enjoy some golf, maybe a few beverages, and hopefully nice weather!
Business After Hours - Our Chamber Ambassadors are the hosts of our Business After Hours. Once a quarter (and maybe a few in between), we gather at a member business to network and check out that business's location. If you'd like to host one at your business, please let us know!
Chamber Choice Awards Banquet - Each year, the Chamber hosts an awards program. We award citizens for their work in business and volunteerism, as well as businesses for their work in our community. The 2016 banquet date is tentatively set for Thursday, April 14. Click here for more information.
Lakes Area Home & Cabin Show - Another fundraiser for the Chamber, the Lakes Area Home & Cabin Show is held each spring to help vendors display their products and services for a larger crowd. Held at the Perham Area Community Center, the two day show brings people in from all around the area. For more information on being a vendor, click here.
Turtle Fest - This is Perham's annual summer festival. Much like other towns, we have one big summer celebration to look forward to each year. Naturally, ours is based around our town's mascot, the turtle. We help organize the community celebration. Each event is hosted by a different community group or business, and then all of the events are compiled into one large schedule. We love seeing how our community comes together to pull of the five day series of events. For more information and updated schedules, click here.
