The Grandville Jenison Chamber of Commerce has a membership that consists of community-spirited citizens pooling our resources for the benefit of our community! As an invested member in the Chamber, we strive to keep you updated when opportunities arise for us to partner in providing those benefits.
Since the completion of the Downtown Grandville Streetscape, it has become a gathering area for a wide variety of events throughout the year. One additional improvement that has been on the wish list is an outdoor fireplace to utilize during fall and winter events.
The Chamber Board of Directors recently voted to donate $5000 out of the Chamber’s investment account to support the project. “This is a great opportunity for us to fulfill our missions while increasing visibility and awareness of the chamber and to step up our branding efforts,” explained Brian Maring, Chamber President. There will be a placard that will read “Donated by Members of the Grandville Jenison Chamber” on the fireplace when completed. “In addition, we have reached out to Georgetown Township/Jenison and are looking for opportunities to invest and give back to a project that will positively affect the community there as well. ” Continued Maring.
The Chamber has a healthy investment account and, in alignment with US chamber best practices and Grandville Jenison chamber polices, maintains a minimum balance of between 30 and 50% of the yearly operating budget.
The fireplace construction has already began and will be dedicated with a ceremony sometime in October.
