In today’s consumer world the choices seem endless. Where to work, where to shop, where to eat, which doctor or dentist to see and where to get your vehicle serviced, just to name a few.
In November 2017, #ChooseCarroll was launched to remind residents, visitors and consumers that Carroll offers solutions for many of the choices they face – from cars to cardiac care.
“Every day we make choices. We are asking the public to make the conscious choice to support our community, our way of life, and the businesses and organizations who choose to sponsor our local non-profits, school and community activities, educational opportunities and more. We want to encourage as many people as possible to support those who support our community,” explains Shannon Landauer, executive director of the Carroll Chamber of Commerce.
Chamber members are encouraged to use the #ChooseCarroll campaign and look to help tell their own stories. To arrange for a chalkboard #ChooseCarroll photo contact the Chamber office at (712) 792-4383. To download the #ChooseCarroll imagery and collateral materials, please click on the link above.
