A huge thank you to all that contributed to 2018 Winterland! We had hundreds of volunteers, 98 sponsors and over 6,000 cars that came through this year's show. Thank you to all! The funds that are received after expenses are split between the Danville Parks Department and the Danville Chamber of Commerce. The funds support the programs that both organizations offer throughout the year. We have tried to keep the show fresh with new displays and updates to existing displays. We appreciate your support for the last 21 years for Winterland!
Inspirations and Conversations
Inspirations and Conversations is a business mentoring group that has been formed by the Danville Chamber of Commerce as a result of the Strategic Plan that the Town of Danville completed earlier this year to assist small businesses and those who are interested in starting a business. This group meets at the Chamber office in the Town Hall on the 4th Wednesday of each month at 3:00 pm. Terry Wilkin, retired advisor for the Indiana Small Business Development Corp. is the facilitator. For questions, contact the Chamber at 317-745-0670.
