Message Board Policy:
This is to remind you that if you have a special business anniversary, a change of address or business hours, etc., that you would like posted on the Chester Message Board (welcome to Chester sign), the chamber maintains the top two lines on the board and posts Chamber and business related information. The chamber does not post personal birthdays or other special events that are not business oriented. There is only room for a TOTAL of forty-two characters, including spaces (21 on each line). There is no way to squeeze in more text if in excess of forty-two. When sending a request for a posting, please list the text exactly as you would like it posted. The City of Chester maintains the bottom two lines of the sign board and allows postings of personal birthdays, anniversaries and other similar type messages as space permits and in accordance with their criteria.
Once a week is reserved, unless there is an emergency, other requests for that week cannot be honored. It is always first come...first serve. This is a free service that is available to all chamber members. If you have a special event in the future you would like posted on the chamber’s two lines, please email the chamber at firstname.lastname@example.org with the date you want to reserve and the exact text. If you have any questions, feel free to call 826.2721.
