Volunteers staffs I.V. Chamber’s office

Welcome aboard Suzette Reed! Suzette has volunteered her time to help keep the office open on Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 1 pm. And she has been accepted as a new board member for the Chamber. We welcome her and her energy in assisting with keeping the chamber alive and growing.

We do still have a couple spots open on the board and welcome others who would wish to be a board member or volunteer time in the office or for events and activities.

Volunteer Heidi Wakefield will be taking a break from the office for a few months. As all volunteers and board members, Heidi has given countless hours to the Chamber. We will miss her while she is gone and look forward to her return.

A Trick-or Treat event will be happening in Greenville tomorrow afternoon. Look for the orange pumpkins in participating businesses windows or doors. And maps of those that are participating have been distributed to the schools and in info boxes around town.


Merchants in Crescent Mills, Greenville and Taylorsville will be holding an Annual Holiday Open House on Nov. 1, 2 and 3. Yes, that’s right, this weekend! This is a tradition beginning over 30 years ago at Crescent Country. Others such as Sterling Sage in Greenville will be participating as well. A tradition it has become to attend if you have never been … it’s a wonderful time to support the local Indian Valley merchants and see what they have to offer for the season.

The following weekend of Nov. 9 marks the Mountain Affair Shopping Weekend. This event encompasses not only Indian Valley merchants but also Chester and Westwood merchants too. There is a scavenger hunt for shoppers to partake in. They will be searching for a specific item in participating shops and who ever wins will receive an amazing gift filled basket. Stop by Sterling Sage or Crescent Country next week for maps.

Volunteers are needed for the Veterans Day Parade at 11 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 11. This parade may be small but it overflows with pride and patriotism. If you would like to help out, contact the office at 284-6633.

Indian Valley is bursting with fall color right now. The vast array of orange, red and yellow hues amaze me every day as they change right in front of you. That being said, if you love the hues of fall make sure to take a drive today. It doesn’t last long.


Happy Halloween everyone.
