The Chamber is busy working on plans for events that will take us into the new year.

On Oct. 11, the Chamber and the Frankfort Historic Business Alliance will host the always popular Witchy Girls Night Out from 6 to 9 p.m. at various downtwon businesses.

On Oct. 26, we will host a new networking event–Oktoberfest at the German American Heritage Center on Center Road. Open to Chamber members and non-members. Information and registration on our website.

October also brings some Halloween fun at the Frankfort Police Department’s Trunk or Treat, Saturday, Oct. 28 at the Breidert Green Municipal Lot. Also that day, the Frankfort Historic Business Alliance will host Ghosts on the Green. We are securing a venue for our Annual Membership Meeting in November, where we once again will offer you the opportunity to be creative with centerpiece sponsorships. Watch for more details coming soon.

We also are planning for next year’s Meet, Greet & Network schedule. If you’re interested in being a sponsor or presenter, please email kris@frankfortchamber.com.
