Chamber’s Annual Banquet

October 27, 2021

Members are invited to attend our annual luncheon meeting on October 27, 2021. Our guest speaker this year is Antonio Rosell with Community Design Group. Antonio will be giving an overview of the new Glencoe Comprehensive Plan. The Plan will detail what the future of Glencoe should look like. During the luncheon we also recognize and thank those that have volunteered and invested in our community. Click here to see a registration form.

Last year, due to Covid-19 we were not able to have the banquet, but that didn’t stop the Chamber from recognizing our award recipients. To see a recap and to honor those that have made investments into the community click here.

Farm Fatigue

SUPPORT OUR LOCAL FARMERS – DRIVE SAFELY! Every year the Glencoe and Hutchinson Chamber of Commerce seek goodies from our members, then collate 300 gift bags and buckets (donated by Miller Manufacturing) with items that have been donated and distribute to county farmers during the fall harvest time. We just want the farm community to know how much the business community appreciates their hard work.
