Promotions Committee


Promotion takes many forms, but the goal is to create a positive imagine in order to increase community pride. Promotion seeks to improve retail sales events and festivals and to create a positive public image of downtown in order to attract investors, developers, and new businesses. Promotion creates community pride through the following: Summer Serenades, Rising Sun Biggest Loser, Geocaching Contest, Road Rallie tours that can be downloaded, marketing weddings in Rising Sun, and Home for the Holidays.
