The Tree Decorating Contest is underway! Each participating business will decorate a tree to reflect that businesses tastes. 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 for $150 to donate in their name to the Emmet County non-profit of their choice. Please help us make this event successful and fun, get out and vote! Click here for a list of participating Chamber Businesses!

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! Estherville Bucks stimulate Estherville's local economy!
