North Huron Assume Wingham Chamber Dollar Program

North Huron Assumes Wingham Chamber Dollar Program
 

The Township of North Huron has assumed the administration of the Wingham Chamber
Dollar Program. The program has been successful in encouraging shoppers to remain
local and is credited with keeping thousands of dollars in the Wingham area each year.
The municipality will research how to best utilize the program by exploring the
possibility of an expanded “Buy Local” campaign.

After struggling in recent years to attract people to fill key positions, the Executive of the
Wingham & Area Chamber of Commerce voted unanimously to begin the process to
dissolve at a meeting in December. Past President, Kathy Steele informed the
membership in a letter last week, “Should an occasion arise in the future that the
community wishes to revive the Chamber or a BIA for Wingham, it would certainly be a
benefit to the town. On behalf of the Chamber, I would like to thank all the businesses
and individuals who faithfully supported it in the past.”

Businesses can submit Chamber dollars to the Township by dropping them off at the
Municipal office.
