The Madrid Area Chamber of Commerce (MAC) raised $250 from the Avenue of Trees event, which was part of the 2016 MAC Christmas Extravaganza, and donated it to Greater Love Ministries.
The Madrid Christmas Extravaganza will be on Monday, December 5, 2016. The Lighted Parade will begin at 6:00 pm.
The Madrid Area Chamber of Commerce (MAC) sponsors this event.
The Madrid Area Chamber of Commerce (formerly Madrid Action Committee) is cooperating with the City of Madrid to hire an independent contractor as the Community Development Specialist. Mary Swalla Homes has been hired and will begin work to promote Madrid in July.
The Madrid Action Committee voted to change its name to Madrid Area Chamber of Commerce. The updated name is more effective at communicating the organization’s mission, goals, and activities to the Madrid community. The acronym, MAC, will remain in use.
