New Christmas Event- Tree Decorating Contest

There will be a new event to help celebrate Christmas in Estherville this year, a tree decorating contest. Each participating business will put up any size of tree in their building and decorate it however they choose. The community will then have a list of the participating businesses and will go around and vote for their favorite tree! When a community member votes for a tree they will also enter themselves into a drawing! The winning tree will get goodies to enjoy and the winner of the voter drawing will get treats and a check to donate in their name to the Emmet County Charity of their choice. Please help us make this event successful and fun! Sign up your business to participate here!

Estherville Bucks!

Estherville bucks are an important part of the Estherville Community. Last year over $26,000 of Estherville bucks were bought. That is $26,000 that can only be spent here in Estherville!!! Please remember that only Estherville Chamber members are allowed to accept the Estherville Bucks. You can use Estherville bucks to buy Christmas presents at many of the local retailers, they can be used to get groceries for your Holiday dinners or to get gas at Sinclair to get you to Grandma's house!
