Forty-one years of Oil Heritage Festival have been celebrated by the community, because of generous sponsors and volunteers. Planning happens almost year round, but your Chamber is now in full tilt;—securing entertainment contracts, reserving venues, and preparing for all the promotion for the 2019 OHF. Now is the time to let us know if you’d like to support the festival and your help can come in many ways.
Financial sponsorship assures that we can hire the musicians, print the programs, and provide the awards and prizes for events going on within the festival. Regardless of how much, every donation is appreciated and is your vote of confidence that you value community celebration. We often hear that businesses or community members are ready to get involved and wish to add a new event or come and volunteer during the festival. This is a great way to get to know your community better. Let us know if we can find a job for you. We can use you for a short time or fully immerse you in the festival experience.
We understand that many small businesses have a modest amount of time and money to give, but still want to be connected. We’ll be collecting items or complete baskets for our raffle once again and will have placemat advertising available. Believe it or not, deadlines for our print materials are quickly approaching. You’ll find more information about sponsorship and advertising in the insert in this newsletter. Let us know if we can help you find the best way to get involved in Oil Heritage Festival this year.
