Partnership with CommunityLink

Your O’Fallon Chamber of Commerce has once again partnered with CommunityLink to bring a street detail City Map to O’Fallon. CommunityLink published the O’Fallon city map several years ago. Members will be receiving a letter in the mail soon about the map program. A representative from CommunityLink may be contacting you in the near future to fill you in on the full details of the map program and the advertising opportunities it provides. This partnership will allow the Chamber to highlight our members, while providing the community with these detailed maps. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the Chamber Office, 636-240-1818.

We will have a GO BLUE DAY Pinwheel garden on Friday, April 15, 2011 at 1:00 PM at CenturyLink campus at 1151 CenturyLink Drive in Wentzville, MO with a short ceremony, media and plant the pinwheels.
