Chatham 250 – Add your Business chachke to the Birthday Party swag bag!

Chatham County is 250 years old in 2021 and there are business opportunities to get your name in front of people visiting the County and Anniversary Events:

  • Saturday, April 10th from 2 pm – 5 pm there will be a drive-thru event at the parking lot between Salisbury and Hanks Streets (across from Postal Fish and City Tap and behind Circle City Books). There will be several stations: Art, History, etc. Chatham 250 plans on handing out 100-150 gift bags for the cars that drive through. Chatham 250 would like downtown to participate with swag. To find out how contact: Mallory Peterson. PBA would like to support Hillsboro businesses that will be open with balloons outside their business. Please contact Maria Parker-Lewis to get your balloons if you’ll be open.
  • Add to the gift bags: questions? Maria Parker-Lewis or Mallory Peterson. Put a Birthday Party chachke with your business information on it so visitors can find you online or in-person. For example, the Museum, Toy Store, and Chatham Business Services will put coloring pages in the bag that have their buildings ready to be colored in!
