County gearing up for business expo
BETHEL -– Bethel Area Chamber hosts Oxford County Business Expo and Taste of Oxford County from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 29 at Telstar Regional High School.
Fantastic improvements have been made to the Business Expo event that the Bethel Area Chamber has organized for four consecutive years. It has been expanded to include businesses not only in the Bethel area, but all of Oxford County.
Presented by Norway Savings Bank, the show will include 50 business vendors – all inviting folks to visit their booths to learn about new products and services – and most of them will have raffles and giveaways. This first 200 people that come through the doors of the show will receive a free gift compliments of the Chamber.
Come for the food! – The Taste of Bethel has also been expanded to include restaurants all over Oxford County – and all will offer delicious tastes from their menus between noon and 2 p.m. in the Telstar cafeteria. Many of the vendors will have show specials on their products and services.
Nearly three dozen companies have already registered for the event but space is available for vendors at both events. Contact the chamber office at 824-2282 if your business is interested in participating – the event is expected to sell out! Vendor space is available starting at $50 for businesses that are members of any of the Oxford County Chambers.
Event chairwoman Lynn Saxton of United Insurance invites everyone – whether you are a consumer or a business person -- noting, “the events will collectively offer delicious food, chances to learn about products and services available in our region, pre-holiday shopping opportunities, and several chances to win some fantastic raffle items provided by event sponsors and local businesses. A featured raffle is for one cord of firewood, delivered, compliments of Cross Excavation.
Sponsors include: Norway Savings Bank; Sun Media; United Insurance; Northeast Bank; Turner Publishing; W.J. Wheeler & Co.; Saunders Bros/WoodGems; Western Maine Property Protection; Arsenault’s Satellite TV; and Western Maine Supply.
