Community Involvement

 

Washington County Fair

For 15 years now, we have been actively involved in the Washington County fair as a vendor. Each year, we try to come up with new ways to reach out to the customer and get them involved in our booth. This is our week during the summer to relax, showcase our hard work and connect with individuals and families as they stroll by in our building.

Woodbury Community Foundation Soiree Spooktakular

Each year, the Woodbury Community Foundation does a huge fundraiser around Halloween that involves a banquet dinner, silent and live auctions. They money raised goes toward the community’s need for assisting Youth, jobs, housing and food. All proceeds from this event are put right back into the community in the form of programs and grants.

Woodbury Expo

The annual Woodbury Expo is where “Commerce and community connect.” Local businesses in the community have a chance to set up a booth and reach out to community members on what their company has to offer. Last year there were over 160 businesses and there is food, free family entertainment and fun! In 2013, over 7,000 people filtered through the Bielenberg Dome and the coming years are expected to continuously grow.

In April of 2014, we celebrated our “Re Grand-Opening” to launch many exciting agency changes. New family ownership, (Ashley joined the agency in 2011) more companies, more products, a bigger and better referral program, our new office space and newly designed marketing materials. We held drawings, door prizes, and collected food items to send to a local MN National Guard Unit deployed in Afghanistan.

 

Woodbury Chamber Ribbon Cuttings

As Ambassadors on the Woodbury Chamber of Commerce, we believe it is important to get involved and give back to the community. We have the privilege of attending all community Ribbon Cuttings for new businesses and Grand Openings. We attend with the Mayor, city officials, the Woodbury Royal Court, community members and new business owners along with their families. This is a time for business owners to display their new products or services, tell their story and the celebration always entails the official “Cutting of the Ribbon” with a giant scissors, and refreshments to follow.
