It has been a beautiful sight in Chippewa Falls as the community has lit itself blue as a "Beacon of Hope" for our community members. 

Due to a generous, anonymous donation, there are still bulbs available for those homes and businesses wanting to participate through the extended "Safer at Home" order at the following locations:
  • Jacobson's Ace Hardware: 111 W Columbia St.
  • Sokup's Market: 624 N Bridge St.
  • Northwest Bank Drive-up Location (1st Lane Only): 22 E Central St.

If you need a blue light, please limit to one per household or business to allow our "Beacon of Hope" to spread further throughout the community.

We are still processing Chamber Buck$ orders, so our community can continue to support those hit hardest by the pandemic.  Pre-order Chamber Buck$ by emailing Mandy at any time. Buck$ will be available for pick-up at the Chamber every Wednesday through May.

Certificates are available in $5, $10, $20 or $25 denominations. Cash and check are accepted as payment methods. Member businesses do have the option to request an invoice.

We didn't want to limit the number of people who could enjoy this annual event and have opted to change the June Dairy Days Dinner to an August Farmer Appreciation Dinner.

The Chippewa Falls area has been fortunate to have excellent leadership from its businesses and various other segments of the community. Our area continually experiences issues due to the constant influence of change and growth. How these issues are managed depends to a considerable degree upon informed, skilled and concerned community leaders. Leadership Chippewa Falls offers a way to ensure that the tradition of strong leadership continues in the area by acquainting participants with a broad understanding of issues and civic challenges facing our community. Each month participants will spend a half-day learning about one sector of the Chippewa Falls community. They will have the opportunity to meet key leaders in these areas, discuss the challenges within the community and determine how these challenges might be resolved.  

Anyone interested in participating can access the application through the Chippewa Falls Chamber Website or by contacting Tasha from the Chippewa Falls Chamber directly. We are accepting Leadership Chippewa Falls applications from now until July 17.
