Opening Doors for a Century

Posted on Monday, January 12, 2015 - 8:39am

The New Year ushered in a new century for the Orrville Area Chamber of Commerce.  The Chamber, an association primarily of people in business that promotes the commercial interests of an area, was established by a group of 100 business and professional men in the Orrville Area in July 1915.  These men realized that their individual success was dependent on the collective prosperity of the area in which they lived and worked. Together the members of the Orrville Area Chamber have accomplished a great many things over the past century opening doors to opportunities that would not have been possible to realize alone. 

The Chamber’s marketing committee spent nearly six months developing a campaign to celebrate the centennial around the theme “Opening Doors since 1915.”  Various promotional elements of the campaign will be presented throughout the year as we attempt to share the historical impact that the Orrville Area Chamber has had in our community.

The Opening Doors campaign was developed by the Chamber Marketing Committee consisting of: Melinda Thomas, Mike Hedberg, Lisa Kauf, Traci Carmony, Debbie Muniak, Dave Hershey, June White and Lori Reinbolt.

The committee collectively conceived the design of a new Chamber logo and utilized the services of Chamber member businesses whenever possible to produce various promotional pieces.

The content of the new membership packet was developed based on data obtained from a survey of the Chamber membership conducted in the summer of 2014 by WRL Advertising.  The folder and sell sheets were printed by GBS Corp and the envelopes that the packet was mailed in were designed and printed by Orrville Printing.  

A membership plaque featuring a newly designed Chamber logo was produced by P.S. Trophy.  A sticker with the membership year and a window cling were designed by Proforma.  The new plaques and clings will be presented to each member upon renewal, or joining, in 2015.

A complete redesign of the Orrville Area Chamber of Commerce website is currently in development by Birdeye.  The new website will be responsive for use on all the latest mobile devices and will be more closely aligned to with the Discover Orrville mobile phone app that launched in June 2014.

The Orrville Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to have so many quality resources available among our membership.  Any business or organization in the Orrville Area is welcome to join the Chamber.  Find out how the Orrville Area Chamber can help “open doors” for your business or organization by contacting the Chamber office at 330-682-8881 or chamberoffice@orrvillechamber.com

Gift of Downtown Decorations

Posted on Monday, December 8, 2014 - 9:21am

New Christmas decorations were hung at the four major intersections in downtown Orrville on December 4.  The new decorations were a gift to the City of Orrville from the Orrville Area Development Foundation.
 
In September, the OADF received a donation of $7K from the former Main Street Orrville organization that ceased operations in October, 2013.  It was the desire of the former MSO Board of Directors that the funds be used for a downtown improvement. 
 
“The Main Street donation was an unexpected gift,” stated Lori Reinbolt, executive vice president, Orrville Area Development Foundation. “{We} felt that it was only appropriate present a gift in return.”
 
The City’s downtown street decorations were in dire need of replacement and the OADF Board was glad that they were able to provide this gift to the City for everyone to enjoy.
