We are now accepting sponsorships for the 2013 Farmer's Appreciation Dinner on November 21, 2013. If you would like to be a sponsor, and be mentioned in the Peanut Festival Magazine as well as the online ad on Worthit2u.net, the deadline is September 1, 2013.
Your chamber is the primary source for individuals looking for information on business, education, health care, development and the drivers of our economy. One of the greatest vehicles for communicating this important information is through one of the chamber’s most popular publications, the Sylvester - Worth County Chamber Magazine.
This full color glossy magazine is used to promote chamber partner businesses to current residents, newcomers, other businesses and visitors. Along with the contact listings of all our partners, the magazine also has vital community, education and quality of life information. Published every two years, it includes an alphabetical member directory that lists members
We will also be printing an updated map of the county in conjunction with the magazine. These magazines and maps will be distributed through the chamber office, visitor centers, other surrounding chambers, newcomers to the community, various businesses and handed out at festivals and events.
We have once again partnered with a local business for this project. You should be hearing from Kellie Parten of The Sylvester Local News very soon. Or you can contact her at 229-776-7713 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Space is limited, so please contact Kellie soon to take advantage of this low cost, high exposure advertising opportunity!
