Chamber Officials Pleased With Stroll

During a meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 6, the Wolf Point Chamber of Commerce directors discussed how well the Christmas Stroll went on Saturday, Dec. 3.

“It was surprisingly well attended despite the weather,” Chamber president Aaron Kurokawa said.

Director Jerald Petersen noted the Lions Club served two roasters of chili in 56 minutes. Opportunity Bank gave out 200 s’mores.

Many participants took part in hay rides, which were conducted even longer than anticipated.

Director Nicole Miller said she sold more photos with Santa than in previous years.

The Chamber was thankful for the many volunteers who came out to help set up for the Christmas Stroll this year.

Board members noted that the Dueling Pianos performance was well attended and enjoyed this year.

Financially, the Chamber broke about even with Dueling Piano.

The next 100th Stampede celebration committee meeting is scheduled for Dec. 19, at 6 p.m., at the Elks Lodge. Miller said the Sherman Inn will begin accepting reservations from the public on Jan. 15, for Stampede weekend.

When dues are mailed out for the 2023 year, the Chamber will send membership information to area farmers and ranchers. Directors noted the Chamber used to have more members from the agricultural community.

The “100 Bushels For the 100th” fundraiser encourages area framers to gift 100 bushels of grain to the Stampede. Funds will be added to the pulse for the Stampede’s rodeo.
