WELCOME TO MORTON BAGS
The Chamber puts together Welcome to Morton bags that are given to new citizens by the Village of Morton when they stop in to hook up their water service. We distribute approximately 360 bags per year. When the Chamber is ready to fill another set of Welcome Bags, we send an email out to our Members to let them know how many items to bring to our offices for the bags. We encourage Members to offer a valuable coupon, free product or service, or an item that new residents will keep and enjoy.
The Chamber sells over $100,000 each year in Chamber Checks, a gift certificate that can only be redeamed at Chamber Member businesses. We promote the Chamber Checks for holiday gifts and employee incentives. All Chamber Members can accept Chamber Checks and cash them through their banking institution as they would any other check.
