    Hello Magnolia!

    We’re in the final countdown towards Summerfest, and really excited about this year. Making Summerfest a reality (now in its 55 th year) requires two things: passionate volunteers and funding. Last year, an understaffed small group of volunteers were able to raise enough money, from businesses and neighbors, to make Summerfest a successful community event.

    The community realized how important Summerfest is and how it brings together an enriched community. This year, we have a great volunteer committee made up of neighbors, but we still need more ideas and more volunteers to staff the event and expand the possibilities. I encourage anyone to join one of our planning meetings in the coming weeks.

    With this year’s funding’s efforts, we are in a much better position than last year, but are still short of our goal - $10,000 from the non-business community to support Magnolia Summerfest (that’s about 40% of the total cost).

    Over the years, Summerfest has been sponsored by a small group of Magnolia Chamber members and related donors. They’re still involved, but with rising costs and expectations, we need the help of the entire community. That’s where you come in!

    We can reach our goal of $10,000 through the power of numbers. If 400 families contribute just $25, we’ve done it. Please help support this great tradition and connection to the community. We have a funding page on our web site, or you can drop off a donation at Magnolia Mailbox. We’re also selling Magnolia Summerfest coffee at the Farmer’s Market for the next couple of months. Every bag puts another $6 in the fund.

    With your support, we can ensure the future of Summerfest, and add some new attractions, too.

    Thanks!

  • Hanging Banner Program

    Magnolia Village Chamber of Commerce

    McGraw Street Banner Program

     

    The McGraw Street banner hanging system is owned and managed by the Magnolia Chamber​ of Commerce. All banners are reviewed and approved for hanging by the Magnolia Chamber​ of Commerce Board of Directors. The following information is provided to help outside​ organizations understand the criteria by which banner requests are evaluated.

     

    Statement of Purpose

    Banners are hung as a free community service to drive awareness for events and programs​ that meet some or all of the following criteria:

     Sponsored by the Magnolia Chamber of Commerce (e.g. Summerfest, Halloween Trick​ or Treat, Vino in the Village)

     Build traffic for Magnolia Village and other Magnolia Chamber businesses

     Benefit non-profit organizations that directly benefit the community of Magnolia

     Build community spirit for Magnolia

     

    The Chamber may choose not to hang banners for organizations or events that:

     Have political or religious objectives, statements or messages

     Are solely for profit and do not benefit a Magnolia community organization

     Compete directly with Magnolia Chamber member businesses

    While all of these factors will be considered, the Magnolia Chamber of Commerce reserves the right to decline any and all banner requests, at their sole discretion.

     

    Hanging Guidelines

     Banners will be hung over McGraw Street for two weeks. Hanging times longer than two​ weeks are granted for Chamber-sponsored events and other events only on an exception​ basis.

     All Chamber-sponsored event banners are given priority over all other banners.

     No banner will be hung one week before or one week after another banner, with the​ exception of Chamber-sponsored events.

     On an exception basis, two non-competing banners may be hung side by side.

     All banners must be 2-sided and meet size and construction specifications to fit the​ existing hanging system. Please refer to the banner specification sheet, available from the Chamber office.

     Costs for hanging & removing banners: Members, no charge. Non members, $50 per​ banner per occasion
