LORDS VALLEY - The Pike County Chamber of Commerce along with event sponsor Ryan’s Deli located at 707 Route 739, Lords Valley have announced a Business Networking event on Thursday, February 1st at 5 p.m. (with snow date Friday, February 2nd). An RSVP is requested.

Food drive

A new addition to the Chamber’s networking events is the Pike County Chamber in a collaborative effort with the United Way of Pike County to have a food drive at every Chamber function to help service all of the food pantries in Pike County. 

“Please be sure to bring with you any non-perishable items in a bag to help,” said Chamber officials.

Everyone (members/non-members) is welcome to bring your friends and business associates along with plenty of business cards and take advantage of this event to network your business, organization or upcoming event. 

“You will have many chances to make new contacts and get more business no matter what industry you are in.  Making those important face to face contacts at this relaxing evening event is such a powerful and affordable marketing tool that can help your business grow,” Chamber officials stated. 

There will be complimentary food, refreshments, beer specials a 50/50 raffle and door prizes.  If you would like to donate a door prize, please call ahead to let the Chamber know.    

Admission at the door is still free for Pike Chamber members or $10.00 for non-members.

Door prizes

Door prizes are an easy marketing trick that allows the winner to take home something from your business with your contact information for future business to you. 

Some good examples of a door prize would be a gift basket/bag filled with things from your company ie: brochures, magnets etc. explaining what you do, maybe a nicely wrapped box of samples if you are a baker or candy maker, a gift certificate for breakfast/lunch/dinner attached to a bottle of wine or Perrier.  Even if you can’t put together something from the office, pick up a bouquet of flowers and attach your business card to it; people will remember you.

RSVP by e-mailing info@pikechamber.com or calling the Chamber office at  570-296-8700.
