Marceline, MO –
decades of use, the Christmas decorations that have spanned the streets of Main
Street USA have finally been replaced. Although paid from current funds,
the Marceline Area Chamber of Commerce is still seeking donations.
Chamber of Commerce purchased 5 new street-spanning swags at a cost of just
under $7,300. Existing decorations from the past will be repurposed (where
possible) and used in Ripley Park. One of the newly-purchased swag pieces
will be on display over Ritchie Avenue next to Ripley Park on May 7-11.
There will be another display scheduled in July.
to have you as a member if you’re not already, and we hope you’ll contribute
towards our new Christmas decorations. Peanut Night is consistently one of
the most well attended events of the year. Donations may be mailed to the
Chamber at P.O. Box 93, Marceline, MO 64658, or visit
www.gofundme.com (search by zip code or the word “Marceline”) and
Chamber currently has 51 business members and 12 associate members. We
contribute to events, promotions and advertising in and for Marceline. We
support our youth through buddy packs, a scholarship and the mailbox project,
which encourages our graduates to return home someday.

Borland said – is a combination of all our efforts. We appreciate your
efforts in helping us!!
