Dollars Stay Local, Artists Needed

 

January 17, 2018



It was a very successful holiday season for local merchants, the community and the Glasgow Area Chamber of Commerce & Agriculture with the annual Community Cash and Chamber Big Bucks programs.

From Oct. 16 to Dec. 31, Community Cash scripts were available at First Community Bank in Glasgow and Hinsdale, Valley Bank and Independence Bank. A total of $118,340 dollars was spent at 64 Chamber business members.

Also from Oct. 16, to Dec. 31, $19,710 of Chamber Big Bucks was purchased from the Chamber office to be used at local merchants. With both programs, a total of $138,050 was spent locally during the 2017 holiday season in Glasgow.

Due to both programs, local merchants were able to be successful this holiday season and the Chamber thanks everyone for participating in these programs.

The Glasgow Tourism Business Improvement District is looking for proposals to design and produce a metal image and lettering to affix to the large rocks that are placed in concrete, adjacent to Highway 2 on the east and west side of Glasgow.

Interested artists and metal fabricators are asked to submit two or three designs using the new Glasgow logo and incorporating the words “Welcome” and “Glasgow.” Designs, along with suggested materials and total cost for both signs, including cost of design, materials and installation, should be mailed to Glasgow Chamber, PO Box 832, Glasgow, Montana 59230 or dropped off at the Glasgow Chamber Office by noon on March 2. The signs must be installed by May 1.

When submitting the bid, keep in mind the materials used must be permanent, low maintenance and affixable to rocks, and must be easily visible from the highway. Sign dimensions must be included in the bid.

To obtain measurements and photos of the rock for design purposes, e-mail the Chamber at chamber@nemont.net.

The TBID board reserves the right to select the best suited design and will consider qualifications, previous projects, ability to meet the timeline and price.
