Chamber Seeking Mob Families

The Washington County Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring a new program to encourage shopping local.

The Chamber is seeking groups (aka Mob Families) to conduct “hits” at Chamber of Commerce member businesses and organizations.

Persons interested in being a Mob Family Leader (aka Don) are encouraged to contact the Chamber Office at info@washingtoncountychamber.org or by phone at 812-883-4303. The program will begin in March and continue thru October. Mob Leaders will put together a family, name their family, keep track of the money spent by their family and have fun! Mob families that conduct the most ‘hits’ and have the largest families will be recognized at the Chamber’s Annual Dinner.

Current Mob Families: 

  • Family Ties – led by the Godmother Mindy Gunn
  • Wash Co Mob Family – led by Keeley Stingel
  • Salem Cheerleaders – led by Rhonda Smith and Lana Hamilton
  • The Royal Family – led by Angie Wilson
  • The LaSalinda Family – led by Denise Newkirk

Repair the Bell Fundraising Underway

The 2013 Awareness Washington County Class and We The Youth Program are working to restore the Washington County Courthouse bell, which has a large crack in it. We are raising funds in order to ensure the bell will continue to not only ring again, but remain a vibrant part of our community. We will be holding fundraising events throughout the county to raise money to have the bell repaired. Follow us as we all work to save this piece of Washington County history for generations to come.

To donate to our cause, checks can be made out to Awareness Wash County, with "Save the Bell" in the memo line, and sent to PO Box 212, Salem, Ind., 47167. The donation will be placed in a non-profit fund, so donations should be tax-deductible.
