The time is now to become a member or renew memberships with the Damariscotta Region Chamber of Commerce.

Membership includes a free business listing in the 2011 Region guide books, or one may choose to place a color ad for an additional cost. The guide, which is distributed throughout the state at businesses and information centers, is an excellent way to promote a business and bring attention to the region. The Chamber receives hundreds of requests across the globe from perspective visitors for this publication annually.

As a free service, the chamber offers to place calendar of event items in their guide for all area events and activities. Anyone that would like to submit their photos for possible submission in the guide please drop your 300dpi photos on disk to the chamber office. The chamber is looking for photos involving area events, scenic, and historic photos.

Deadline for guide ads and membership has been extended to Friday, Dec. 31.

Deadline for photos and calendar of event items is Jan. 25, 2011
