Highlights from Small Business Week 2019

From October 21-25, your Chamber of Commerce was busy celebrating Small Business Week with our members. All week long, Marley and I were out of the office visiting our Chamber members and delivering cookies to celebrate business in our community. We were able to visit 79 members in total and delivered 516 cookies! Through the course of our visits, we heard a variety of comments from our members. Here is a brief summary:

New Focus for WLD Legacy Fund

The Drumheller and District Chamber of Commerce (DDCC) has recently restructured its World’s Largest Dinosaur (WLD) Legacy Fund. While the fund will continue to collect 15% of WLD admissions and giftshop sales on a monthly basis, the focus of the fund has shifted. A portion of the Legacy Funds will now be used to support economic development initiatives in partnership with the Town of Drumheller. Remaining funds will be set aside for the continued maintenance of the World’s Largest Dinosaur and to investigate options for WLD 2.0.

3 New Dinosaur Statues Installed in Drumheller

The Drumheller DinoArts Association was pleased to have 3 new dinosaur statues installed in downtown Drumheller on July 10, 2019. The addition of these dinosaurs brings the collection back up to 32, as two dinosaurs were damaged beyond repair near the end of August 2018 and two other dinosaurs were deemed irreparable due to simple deterioration in the spring of 2019.
