[February 02, 2010]
Students at Lincoln colleges, along
with staff and parents, are encouraged to vote for their favorite
businesses in the
student welcome section of
the newly redesigned Web site for the Lincoln/Logan County Chamber
Many of the chamber businesses offer discounts and specials to
college students, staff and parents when they patronize member
businesses. In return the chamber wanted to recognize outstanding
customer services when given. In partnership with Lincoln Daily
News, the chamber created the "This Place Rocks" traveling trophy.
The November "This Place Rocks" winner was Lincoln Best Western and
the December winner was Qik-n-EZ.
This is part of the "Student Welcome Campaign," a relatively new
initiative developed by the chamber's education committee early in
the fall. Many chamber businesses took advantage of this free
program to help encourage students and staff to shop locally and to
engage these young, bright individuals in the community.
The chamber has invited members to attend the next committee
meeting, on Feb. 18 at 10 a.m. at Lincoln Christian University, to
help plan the next phase of this campaign. Members' opinions and
suggestions are valued, and now is the perfect time for members to
let the chamber know where they would like to see this program go.
Please RSVP to the chamber office, 217-735-2385, if you are
interested in joining the meeting or finding out more information
about the welcome campaign.
For businesses to participate in this free program, they must be
chamber members in good standing and opt in by calling or by
e-mailing the chamber office at

The chamber's education committee is made up of representatives from
Lincoln College, Lincoln Christian College, Heartland Community
College, the chamber and Lincoln Daily News.
