Our sole fundraiser for our scholarship program, the annual golf tournament, is now less than a week away. It will be Saturday, August 19 at the Rainsville Golf & Country Club. As of Monday morning (August 14) at 9:45 a.m., a couple of slots for three-person teams remained available. If you would like to sign up to play in the tournament, contact the Chamber office immediately at 256-638-7800 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Tomorrow may be too late.
The tournament will follow a scramble format with an 8 a.m. shotgun start. The cost is $150 per team ($50 per player). It includes entry fee, cart, 18 holes of golf, a custom event t-shirt and cap, plus other gifts. Breakfast and lunch will also be provided.
All proceeds raised at the tournament will fund the Rainsville Chamber's scholarship program. In May of 2017, the Chamber awarded $9,000 in scholarships in the form of five $1,500 scholarships at Plainview High School and one $1,500 scholarship at Cornerstone Christian Academy. That amount represented a new standard for the program -- only $6,000 in total scholarships was awarded in both 2016 and 2015, and $4,500 was the total each year from 2012 to 2014, 2013. Thanks to strong support from the community through various tournament sponsorships, that new standard will be exceeded, and the scholarship total could be $12,000 or more in May of 2018.
On behalf of the Rainsville Chamber board of directors, staff and members, allow me to salute Morris Pest Control for serving the community for 30 years.

The second annual Rainsville Summer Shopping Days will span the month of July. Rainsville’s boutiques, gift shops and other specialty retailers–as a whole–have more to offer shoppers than ever before. We believe there is a lot of excellent merchandise available that the majority of shoppers in the area don’t even know about. Summer Shopping Days is an invitation to get out and discover some of the things that are found at these small shops.
Register for a chance to win $250 in Chamber Bucks each time you shop at a participating member retailer during July. The Chamber Bucks are gift certificates that may be redeemed at any of the Summer Shopping Days locations. We will choose the winner by random drawing on or around July 31. DETAILS.
