What do you love about Brownsville?

- "I enjoy knowing my neighbors and seeing friends when I walk down Main St. I came here from a big city where people don't make eye contact or take the time to know people in their neighborhood, and I appreciate the friendliness I've experienced in Brownsville."

Director of Community Relations

What's your go to item from a business in Brownsville?

What's your go to item from a business in Brownsville?

What's one of your favorite things to do in Brownsville?

- "I really enjoy going to work out at Max's Gym downtown when I have time. I am very competitive, so I like staying on my toes."

"I do a lot of walking around town. I love the old neighborhoods with historic homes and it gives me a chance to fantasize and plan. I have an old Brownsville home that's definitely a fixer right now."

What do you love about Brownsville?

- "I  moved to Brownsville in 2013 when my parents moved their Mexican Restaurant from Lebanon to Brownsville. My Family and I instantly fell in love with the town because of how welcoming residents were and are. It really feels like one big family."

For the next few months, we'll feature a couple of our hard-working board members so you can get to know who is behind the scenes of all of the work being done.

Stand By Me Day

July 23, 2021

The Chamber is doing another Passport Tour on Stand By Me Day. We would love for all Chamber businesses to participate! The Passport Tour makes people aware of the services and items you offer at your business. Participants will hunt for a jar of pennies hidden in your space, just as Vern hunted for his buried jar of pennies when he learned about a dead body in the movie. Email to sign up. We will provide the jar of pennies, stamp pads, stamps, and Passport Cards.

If you haven't checked out the new SetJetter app that fans can download and use to find filming spots around town, do it right away. Our very our Linda McCormick has been instrumental in helping the app creators get everything right. And there's a HUGE opportunity for you as a business! Get a QR code sticker in your shop's window. Visitors will scan the code on their phone to see what was filmed in your area of town. You will be included on the app as well, encouraging people to check out your business. Got to love free advertising, right? See the letter below for more details.

Passport Tour Feedback

Brownsville Video & Spirits

I got a lot of new people come into my store that didn't really know I was here. The chamber did a great job of getting businesses involved.

Armando's Mexican Restaurant

We gained a lot of potential customers who said they would  be coming back next time. Overall the event was fun. Thank you to the  Brownsville chamber.

Not 2 Shabbee

I think the Pioneer Passport Program was a great success! Not only did it encourage people from town to come in, but it brought people from the surrounding areas as well. It also prompted me to walk around and visit the other businesses, some of which I had never been to! I’m already thinking about next years hiding place
