Don’t miss your opportunity to shop local! Come back and visit us in 2021: Fridays 3 to 7pm at Trailhead Park (101 E Center St) starting in June.
Pine Island Trunk or Treat on the 31st
Pine Island is holding it’s 4th annual Trunk or Treat on Saturday October 31st from 1 to 3pm in the 5-12 school parking lot (3rd Ave SE). We are adopting a drive-through model to ensure a safe and fun Halloween for our community; cars will queue near the bus garages and traffic will be directed through the alley of decorated trunks. Kiddos are still encouraged to dress in costume, though we ask attendees remain in their vehicles.
Events like Trunk or Treat would not be possible with the support of our Chamber membership. Shout out to our Premier member businesses and organizations! For the complete list of Chamber membership, please visit our "Membership Directory." If you're a new resident to the Pine Island area, make sure to claim your FREE Welcome Packet at City Hall stuffed with coupons, freebies, and more. You can find City services and contact information on the City of Pine Island website.
In these uncertain times where information is changing rapidly, the Pine Island Area Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to assisting our members. One thing we can ALL do is support our local businesses whenever possible! Here are recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that everyone can do to stay safe:
Wear a mask in public
Practice social distancing by staying at least 6 feet away from one another
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially if you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces often
If you are ill stay at home. If your symptoms worsen, seek medical attention
