The Van Buren Chamber of Commerce invites its members to enjoy some holiday cheer at its annual Christmas open house on Dec. 19.

The evening drop-in event will include delicious food, great fellowship, and a few words from chamber leaders recapping a memorable 2017, according to board president Jim Petty.

Hors d’oeuvres, dessert and punch will be served at the event. Chamber board representatives also will reflect on 2017 successes and give an update on plans for the new year.

“The holidays are a wonderful time to reflect on one’s blessings and our Christmas open house gives us a chance to share how grateful we are to those supporting our chamber and community,” Petty said. “We encourage all of our members to come and celebrate the season with us.”

The open house will be held from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Admission is free and open to all chamber members.

The chamber office is located in historic downtown Van Buren at 510 Main St. For more information, call (479) 474-2761.
