On Monday, August 9th, the Oconto Area Chamber of Commerce held its annual golf outing at the Oconto Golf Club.
It was a 4-person scramble that was won by the team composed of Travis & Susie Cain and Mike and Ken Thompson. The event winners included: Ken Thompson – longest drive for men on hole #5, Kathy McDougal, longest drive for women on hole #5, Closest to the pin for men on Hole #4 – Ken Thompson and closest to the pin for women on hole #4 – Kathy Hayes. Nsight Teleservices provided a chance for each golfer to win a Blue Ray DVD Player which was won by Mike Lochner.
Sub sandwiches were provided by Brothers 3 as well as off the menu dining after the outing. The Chamber wishes to thank the following hole sponsors as well as anyone who contributed prizes for the outing: Brothers 3, Unlimited Services, Nsight Teleservices, NEW Credit Union, Century Link, Cain Accounting, Bay Care Clinic, Oconto Community Hospital, Bond Community Center, LeBreck & Sons, Image Apparel, Wisconsin Public Service, Stephenson National Bank & Trust, Bay Title & Abstract, Mead & Hunt, Patsy Bake of Avon, Harris Bank, Citizen’s Bank, and Thompson’s County Market.
The Chamber has refurbished the informational board at the Oconto Municipal Harbor. It was accomplished through the efforts of Jeff Larmay at Vital Signs who designed all the logos and placed a colored vinyl strip on a PVC board and Ron Hayes, Ron Pecha and Bob Schwartz who sought advertisers.
It includes many of our area restaurants, service stations, churches, retail shops, medical facilities, telephone services, etc. There are 36 individual spots with 30 businesses advertising at this time. There is also a 2 by 4 foot map of the City of Oconto in the middle with color coded numbers identifying the various businesses.
There are a few additional spots that can be purchased. Call Jeff @ Vital Signs for additional info and pricing for the artwork at 920-834-5050. The Chamber has established the pricing for the squares. Many businesses have committed to a 3 year lease for $50 per year. A purchase of one year isn’t $75.
It is a very attractive sign and should be an asset to visitors, the residents of the area, boaters, snowmobilers, or anyone else who frequents the Harbor and wants a quick overview of the area and the City businesses and the surrounding area.
The Oconto Area Chamber of Commerce and the City of Oconto worked together to coordinate a Community Clean up Day on Saturday, May 21st.
Various sections of the City of Oconto were designated as needing some clean up.
The Chamber would like to thank the groups that participated: “Oconto Cares”, Oconto Elks Club, Oconto Lions Club, Scout troops, Babe Ruth, Little League, and Little Girls’s Softball Teams , Middle School Student Council, and Prevea Health. Wisconsin Public Service generously donated money toward the barbecue that the Chamber provided at the Oconto Harbor Park.
