  • Pumpkin Carving Contest

    What would you do with 10,000 dollars? Our pumpkin vendor is searching the nation for the best jack-o-lantern and offering a 10,000 dollar prize to the pumpkin with the most votes. Visit our community pumpkin patch on the grounds of the East Lake Library and buy a pumpkin of any size. With purchase, you will receive a visitor sticker. Go home, carve your pumpkin and upload a picture with the sticker visible to the vendor's contest page https://www.facebook.com/carvingcontest/. Happy carving!

  • Pumpkin Delivery Delayed

    The pumpkin truck has been delayed due to a FEMA related issue. We are now anticipating delivery at the East Lake County Library sometime Saturday night or Sunday morning. Please stay tuned for updates. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

  • Eat and Shop Local

    This time last week we were all in major prep mode in anticipation of Hurricane Irma. We sincerely hope that some sense of normalcy has returned to you and your loved ones. Just a reminder that the grand opening event we had scheduled for Saturday, September 16th on our chamber grounds has been postponed and a new date will be announced soon. Please #eatlocal and #shoplocal this weekend. Our #eastlake businesses were disrupted by the storm and could use some love and support. #community #comingtogether #experienceeastlake

  • Chamber Office Closed Friday and Monday

    The chamber office will be closed Friday, September 8th and Monday, September 11th due to Hurricane Irma. It's important that we give our employees time Friday to secure their homes and shop for hurricane supplies. We will assess things on Monday after the storm passes and reopen the chamber office accordingly.

    Please take care and hunker down.
