COMMUNITY SIGN INFORMATION &
RULES OF USE BY CHAMBER MEMBERS

Another benefit of Chamber membership is the use of the community sign located at the busy intersection of US 14 and W. Diggins Road.  The sign can be reserved for 7 day periods to advertise a community event.  It may not be used to advertise your business or sales on products.  Your membership level determines the number of free weeks you are entitled to utilize the sign in a 12-month period.
