The Jacksonville Area Chamber of Commerce hosted a Home & Recreation Show on March 14 at the Bruner Fitness and Recreation Center on the campus of Illinois College.
Members of the chamber were invited to exhibit and attend, as were any other community members. The idea of the show was to feature area businesses that might offer products of services for the home or homeowner, such as home decor, insurance, home improvement loans, flooring or electronics. In addition to the home, recreational products and services were featured. Some of those included hot tubs, bowling and patio or garden products.
Jacksonville Area Chamber of Commerce President Lisa Musch commented, “The Chamber was pleased to offer the Home and Recreation Show as a new event this year. We thank the exhibitors for sharing information about their products and services. We look forward to growing the event next year. The Chamber is always working to promote our member businesses and encourage local spending.”
The location of the event will allow for growth in the next years, as well. Additional inquiries about the event or happenings otherwise may be directed to the chamber office at 217-245-2174.
