Robbins Auto Parts & Service has been a long time supporter of the community. We are happy to have him in the chamber! Robbins Auto Parts & Service can be reached by calling (517) 741-5199.

Holiday plans:

With COVID19 still surfacing in our local areas the chamber made the difficult decision this week to cancel the Santa Parade for the upcoming holiday season. The Michigan Health Department warnings regarding COVID 19 outbreaks related to large group events and gatherings, along with the recent increase of cases in Calhoun and Branch counties played in to the final decision.

The chamber will still sponsor a Christmas Window Decorating Contest and participate in National Small Business Saturday to be held on November 28 this year. Watch social media outlets and the Hometown Gazette for information to follow as the event nears.


The chamber continues to dedicate itself to further the business interests of our local economy and work toward the betterment of our community. Currently meeting via Zoom, it is easy to chime in on ideas and or concerns. Won’t you join us?
