HLRCC & RMRA TO HOST DIRECT SALES BUSINESS EXPO
The Higgins Lake-Roscommon Chamber of Commerce (HLRCC) and the Roscommon Metropolitan Recreation Authority (RMRA) are proud to hosting the first of what we plan as a bi-annual Roscommon Direct Sales Business Expo on Thursday, May 1st, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the CRAF Center in Roscommon.
Our intent is to provide exposure to those that do direct selling or work from home. For vendors this is a great opportunity to show off your business, product, or service while interacting with fellow direct sellers, but more importantly the citizens of the surrounding areas. We encourage you to bring flyers, ads, coupons, and product to sell. We also encourage you to do a “drawing” for something free at your booth.
We plan to make this a bi-annual event, with another expo to be held in November 11th, around deer season, when we do our annual “Girls Night Out”.
200 MILE YARD SALE
The Higgins Lake – Roscommon Chamber of Commerce along with the Houghton Lake Chamber of Commerce, Saint Helen Chamber of Commerce, Houghton Lake Area Tourism Bureau and the Roscommon County EDC will be working together to organize a “200 Mile Yard Sale” on the weekend of June 6,7, and 8, 2014.
The concept of this Garage/Yard/Side of the Road Sale on the first weekend in June is to get people into the heartland of rural, scenic Northeast Michigan. The event encourages businesses and residents to participate by having yard sales, sidewalk sales and special promotions for a continuous stretch from one end of the sale route to the other; the end result is lots of fun for sellers and shoppers alike.
We are encouraging all businesses organizations, churches, booster clubs, and residents to schedule their event for that weekend. It does not have to run for all 3 days.
This sale in Roscommon County will be running in conjunction with sales in Crawford and Oscoda Counties. Organizers from Oscoda County will be getting the event details on the Pure Michigan website.
The organizers are looking to bring new people into the area with the hopes that they will want to visit us again at other times of the year or perhaps move here and invest in our communities.
