Manchester Business Newsletter

Welcome to our business newsletter

Welcome to the City of Manchester’s first Small Business Newsletter! In an effort to grow our partnership and support our small businesses, the City began hosting small business gatherings last year. They have been a great opportunity for the City to connect on a more personal level with our business owners and we appreciate all of the feedback and suggestions that we have received. This quarterly newsletter is one of the many great things that has come out of those meetings. The newsletter will be published on the City’s website and if you would like to receive notifications, please sign up [here]. Given that this is a new venture for all of us, we welcome topic suggestions and/or feedback!

Sponsorship opportunities—a letter from the Manchester homecoming committee

Greetings from the Manchester Homecoming Committee! We are excited to be celebrating our Annual Manchester Homecoming on September 6-8, 2019 at Paul A. Schroeder Park.
 
Homecoming is a family oriented weekend complete with carnival rides, great raffle prizes, food, live music, free kids activities, a parade, arts and crafts vendors, and great hourly attendance prizes, making this a truly exciting event.
 
We attribute much of our success to the support we receive from the businesses in and around the St. Louis area. The Manchester Homecoming Committee would like to extend an invitation to you and your business to participate in making this year's celebration successful. No matter how big or how small, we welcome any donations. Donations are used as attendance and raffle prizes throughout the weekend and some donations of cash, goods and or services will be featured on the raffle tickets. Your donation will be acknowledged at Homecoming and in area print publications and the website promoting Homecoming. In addition, we prominently display a list of all donors near the Committee Booth and announce donors over the P.A. system throughout the weekend.
 
Proceeds from Homecoming go toward enhancing our park system. Some of the projects that the committee has helped to finance include; accessible playground equipment, foot bridges, memorial trees, a gazebo, and bronze statues at Paul A. Schroeder Park.
 
If you can support Homecoming with a donation, or in any other way, please call us at 636-391-6326 ext. 400 or email pattymj4@yahoo.com. We are more than happy to come pick up your donation or you can mail your donation to:
