Sip, Sample & Socialize - Annual Celebration
The Chamber’s Annual Celebration, Sip, Sample & Socialize, would host its 69th event in January 2021. Due to the pandemic, the celebration committee has worked very hard to rework the event. To keep with the name and theme of the event, we are moving forward to still have Sip, Sample & Socialize but with a twist. Instead of one large event, there will be two events.
Our first event will be Sip & Sample and will take place on Tuesday, February 16th to support local restaurants through takeout options and entertainment. Visit our Calendar of Events for more information! Our 2021 Event will look different, but it will be great!
Details on Socialize will be released later.
The 2020 Middleton Chamber Golf Outing was presented by Monona Bank. The golf outing will take place over two days and instead of a shotgun start, tee times were chosen. The event sponsors were TDS & Group Health Cooperative.
The safety of our golfers, volunteers, sponsors, and staff is our number one priority. Our Safety Sponsor, City Supply, will provide gloves, masks, and hand sanitizer.
Save the Date - 2021 Golf Outing - July 21
