Welcome to the Byron Area Chamber of Commerce
Our mission statement:
To connect and promote businesses serving Byron, provide networking opportunities and assist our members in achieving continued prosperity in the community.
Please continue supporting our local small businesses (goods and services) the best that you can during these changing times! Here is an update of some of our local Chamber businesses.
**Byron Neighbors Helping Neighbors**
Byron Neighbors Helping Neighbors is committed to helping the community’s disabled and/or older adults through this stressful and uncertain time by providing many of the services we offer during “normal” times, but that can be especially helpful now, such as grocery shopping and assurance calls. Please include us with a note that I can be contacted on my cell phone - Kathy Voss @ 507-358-7220 - or a message can be left on my office phone at 507-218-3275 should anyone wish to receive friendly conversation phone calls, grocery/supply shopping & delivery, or to pick up Carhop service meals from our South Rochester location. I hope you and your family are doing well, and that we all are able to see each other again soon!
Otto's Bakery is open for take out only. Call ahead and we will have your order ready if this works for you.
**Bearwood Event Barn**
Bearwood Event Barn is following recommendations provided by the CDC. We are closed to events with groups of more than 10 people, tentatively through May 12th. We are still open for tours and accepting future reservations. We hope to resume normal operations as soon as we can. Stay healthy and safe.
**Byron Eye Care**
Byron Eye Care: Upon following CDC recommendations, has ceased routine eye evaluations. We are still open and available for urgent/emergency eye care needs. That means pink eye, foreign bodies in your eyes, flashes/floaters or any eye injury, please call us. Stay out of the emergency rooms and let Dr Schulz tare care of you! We are still here to help you and your family in whatever way possible. Someone from our team will be available to answer/return phone calls and email inquires, take contact lens orders, and dispense contacts and glasses until further notice. If you need an extension on a contact lens Rx we can do that. Broke your glasses, we can still help you! (we ask that all persons not needing care remain in their vehicles). Though we are trying to limit person-to-person interactions as much as possible, we know you have to see! Thank you for your support of our small business during this time. We hope you are all finding peace, health, and happiness.
Healthy Start is able to be opened from 7:00 - 2:00 pm on Mondays, 7:00 am - 5:30 pm - Tuesday - Friday and 8:00 - 2:00 pm on Saturdays for curb side deliveries, pick up, and delivery on Tuesday's.
We also have started "Pay It Forward" funds. All the monies that are given in the tip jar we are using 100% to make shakes and energy drinks for people that are still working in the community. We are asking people to tell us where they would like the shakes to go...otherwise we pick a business and bring the shakes to them. People can make their contributions at Healthy Start or by calling Cindy at 507-461-5802.
Upcoming Member Events
Each month we help facilitate a networking event for our members, with our members
Meet and Greets and Educational Events are the premier networking events for the Byron Chamber.
The five (5) scheduled Meet and Greets (Conversation and Cocktails) are opportunities for Chamber members and their employees to network with other members while learning a bit more about the monthly host. These Meet and Greets bring together businessmen and women for networking, door prizes, hors d'oeuvres and refreshments. You won't want to miss this valuable networking opportunity!
The five (5) Lunch and Learn Educational Events will give Chamber members a chance to expand their knowledge about topics that may affect their business and our community.
We hope you and your employees will join us for these valuable networking opportunities!
With the help of our members, each year together we host annual public events. These events are a great way for our members to connect with our community.
