We hope this finds everyone healthy as we begin a new year. The Chamber strives to inspire networking between businesses and community members, encourage community pride and host community events to supplement the success of its members.

We continue to look for new ways to utilize and enhance our website, which includes a direct link to our members and list of current community events! If you have an event you would like added please contact us and we will get it included. Also, you can now purchase Wilson Chamber merchandise directly from our website. We continue to work on our great tourist attraction, the World’s Largest Czech Egg. You will notice a new Donation Box has been installed and we extend a HUGE thank you to Dave Cox and the employees at Maico for yet another fabulous addition to the Egg. Landscaping projects for the Egg will continue throughout 2021.
We have already begun to plan another successful year. The Chamber is continuing our fundraising efforts so we may complete the landscaping for the Ed and LaVange Shiroky Park. The Chamber is also working on a plan to update the billboard signs along I-70. If you have not yet become an ‘Egg Donor’ please consider being a part of this great community asset.
The Wilson Chamber of Commerce will continue to be a supporter and advocate for your business or organization and we thank you for your confidence in the Chamber and in our great community! It is through our memberships that the Chamber may continue to offer events and programs that help supplement your business successes. Afterall, the key to our success is YOU! Wilson Chamber encourages you to get involved and become an active voice and we welcome you or a representative from your business to attend and engage in our regular monthly meetings. It is like the old saying goes, “You get out of it what you put in”. We welcome you to attend our monthly meetings, which are held the first Wednesday of each month.
We look forward to partnering with you in 2021 and as always if you have any questions, comments or business promoting ideas, please don’t hesitate to contact one of the board members.
