By David Richards

For years, the marketing committee of the Byron Chamber of Commerce has met monthly for the purpose of finding ways to market Byron to its residents and visitors.

Those meetings have resulted in a variety of successful events, with more planned on the horizon.

"We feel it's very important to still support the local businesses in Byron," said committee member Kelly Domaille, of The Kelly Domaille Team of Keller Williams Realty. "Even if you shift five percent of your spending locally, that's still a huge influx of dollars to our community."

The chamber's marketing committee is constantly brainstorming ways as to how to showcase the community.

Current ideas include the Build Byron rewards card, which for $5 per year residents can buy a card that they can use for discounts at local businesses.

The committee is also the brain child behind the community showcase, which is planned for Oct. 26 at Byron Middle School from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Twenty nine businesses and organizations will be featured at the expo-style event.

The showcase was inspired by the successful version in Dodge Center.

"We always are trying to find different ways to showcase the community," Domaille said.

One of the newest ideas of the marketing committee is a winter festival for Byron, which could feature activities such as sleigh rides, cookie decorating, meeting Santa Clause and the lighting of a Christmas Tree.

Details haven't been finalized, but Domaille said the hope is to make it happen this winter.

"Our goal would be to do something fairly simple and start this year," she said.

The marketing committee is open to all chamber members. In addition to Domaille, members of the committee include chamber president Rachael Bungarden of Ever Grey Photography; chamber vice president Barb Schriever of First Alliance Credit Union; Staci Smoot of Edward Jones; LuAnn Miller of Second Street Pizza; Marie Peterson of the City of Byron; and Jerry Fischer of Leashes and Leads.
