(11-21-20) The Celina Mercer Co. Chamber of Commerce would like to announce that we will be canceling the Christmas Tree Lighting event to be held at the Mercer County Courthouse on Friday, December 4th.
After many conversations with our County Health Department, it has been decided that we cannot host this event due to the updated mandates recently provided by Governor DeWine which include no public gatherings for more than 10 people. As much as we feel we can host a safe event, we in no way want to risk the health of any community member. This was not a decision made lightly but as stated, the health of our community, family, and friends is our priority.
The Midnight Gladness evening of shopping is still permitted to take place but will end at 10pm due to the Statewide curfew. We highly encourage people to support your local businesses this holiday season.
We give a sincere thank you to our corporate sponsors; Jones Jewelers, Celina Eagles, Celina VFW, and Grand Lake Rotary.
Their generosity will carry over as sponsors of next year’s event so mark your calendars for December 3, 2021 for the Christmas Tree Lighting.
