The leaves are falling off of the trees. Winter is upon us.
Last summers was filled with activities sponsored by the Wells Chamber.
The 4th of July parade had a whopping 31 entries. Double from the year before.
We also worked on a 30 minute commercial spot produced by THS videos. We filmed Metropolis, Angel Lake, Horseback riding, and hole in the Mountain, Ruby Mountain Brewery, Chimney Rock Golf Course and ATV trail riding.
This video will be shown by the Nevada Commission of Tourism on their international trips, trade shows and on our Chamber Web page.
Wells Rural Electric has a student summer work program. This summer we enjoyed Hailey Swan as our excellent help. It allowed the Chamber/visitor doors to be open from 9.00 am till 5.00 pm six days a week. This helps our economy by putting “heads in beds” and spends their money here in Wells.
The NCOT awarded the Chamber another $10,000.00 to be used by June 30, 2017. This grant will be used for our two billboards, magazines/radio advertising and the printing of more brochures. We have submitted a second request for $15,000.00, however we do not know as yet if we will get any money awarded.
Our staff is working on next year’s event calendar. We will email the calendar as soon as we have all the most of the events lined out.
The Wells Chamber and staff wish you a great Holiday season. We surely appreciate your continued support.
