Three organizations committed to the betterment of Cleveland and Bradley County are celebrating milestone anniversaries this year.
The Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce is turning 90, and both Cleveland Associated Industries and Junior Achievement of the Ocoee Region will celebrate golden anniversaries. Combined, these organizations represent 190 years of service.
“Our commitment to ensuring business development and a high quality of life for our citizens gives us reason to celebrate,” said Lisa Pickel, executive director of Cleveland Associated Industries and celebration organizer. “And because the respective membership base and many volunteers of our organizations overlap, we’ve opted to combine our anniversaries into one big celebration.”
On Friday, Nov. 6, at 6:30 p.m., members of the Chamber of Commerce, CAI and Junior Achievement will celebrate “Serving Our Community for 190 Years” at Cleveland Country Club. The cocktail-attire party will include dinner and entertainment. Call the Chamber office at 423-472-6587 for more information.
With the intent to encourage local shopping, promote Chamber members and generate excitement about the local economy, the Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce announces that a traveling Christmas Elf will visit local Chamber-member retailers this holiday season.
The “Selfie With the Elfie” campaign will begin Nov. 1 when the Chamber Christmas Elf, a custom bobblehead of Chamber Chairman of the Board Robert Bradney, starts his holiday visits to 14 Chamber members.
