Congrats to our August Chamber Member of the Month!
Take the Pope County Cares Pledge Today!
During these unprecedented times, we want to keep the safety of our community on the forefront. The Pope County Cares Pledge and window cling were created as a cooperative effort of the Glenwood Lakes Area Chamber & Welcome Center and Glacial Ridge Health System after consultation with Horizon Public Health as a way of increasing consumer confidence, welcoming and reassuring our guests, and celebrating our hardworking business owners and employees across the county.
Businesses who sign onto the Pope County Cares Pledge receive the following free benefits:
Free window cling to proudly display at your business
Listing on glenwoodlakesarea.org/Pope-County-Cares-Pledge, including a link to your website or Facebook page
Post highlighting your business on FaceBook with a link to your website
Recognition of your efforts to protect and effectively serve customers during COVID-19
To be eligible for your free Pope County Cares Pledge benefits, businesses must:
Read the Pope County Cares Pledge and certify that you will follow the pledge
Sign the Pope County Cares Pledge document, or fill out the pledge form online
Post your Pope County Cares Pledge window cling publicly at your business
Educate staff on the Pledge, and keep open lines of communication regarding COVID-19 best practices

SHOPPING THE FARMERS' MARKET DURING COVID-19
Stay home if sick
Make a shopping list
Wash your hands (We ask all shoppers to take a minute and wash their hands at one of the hand washing stations at the market.) Hand washing stations and sanitizer will be available at the market.
Use a mask: Please wear a mask, if you don't have a mask or forget your mask we will have a few available.
Look for instructions: We will have some general rules and instructions posted when you arrive at the market.
Each Vendor is asked to have a list of items for sale: This will allow customers time to decide for quick purchases.
Keep 6 feet (1 cow) apart: Be friendly from afar! Wave, share a "peace" sign, or crinkle your eyes in a smile from behind your mask.
Shop alone, if possible: Bring only as many household members as is absolutely needed.
Shop Speedily: Buy items as quickly as possible. Avoid gathering in groups.
