Antique show moved to April

The St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce has many upcoming events.

The Illini Chill will be held Feb. 23. To register people can visit or email
"Everything is in place for that," said Chamber President Todd Jacob.

Jacob said he was going to ask SJO students to help on the day of the event.

It was also announced that the antique show will be held April 27 at the middle school. The event will take place 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Event organizer Deb Calvo said they moved the event to April because of other area antique shows that are going on in March.
Chamber member Tim Evans said they could not do the business expo with the antique show because of how the middle school was laid out and the lack of space but if another community organization wanted to pair with the Leader to hold a business expo that could be discussed.

The chamber discussed the upcoming Chamber banquet which will be held in April.

Evans said that the event is time consuming to plan and if anyone else wanted to help that would be appreciated.
The chamber discussed if the silent auction was worth doing.  

The auction is time consuming but the money raised is donated back to the community. The chamber decided to discuss the matter further at their February meeting.

The chamber voted on two members Movers 4 Less, which is located at 429 E. Warren and Champion Fitness which is in Main Street Station.

The members were accepted.

The Chamber discussed Country Christmas. Around 70 children attend the event. A local business person donated stuffed animals to give to the children and St. Joseph-Ogden students sold breakfast items. A local girl scout troop had games for the children to play. The event was successful and the Chamber thought it was a good idea to have the event focus on the children of the community instead of having vendors.

At the meeting, it was announced that during Country Christmas the chamber spent close to $800 in ads. Santa was paid $125.
