Juneteenth Community Celebration

On June 19, 1865, the Union soldiers arrived in Galveston, Texas, with the news that the Civil War had ended and all enslaved people were now free.

The day became known as Juneteenth, or Freedom Day, the oldest African-American holiday. In June 2021, this day, Juneteenth or Freedom Day, was designated a Federal Holiday – Juneteenth National Independence Day – a time to honor African-American heritage, but also an occasion to revel and reflect on the principles upon which this great nation was founded.

Second Baptist ChurchSteubenville City SchoolsTrinity Health System, and the Old Fort Steuben have joined forces to hold a Four Day Celebration to commemorate Juneteenth in the City of Steubenville. There will be entertainment, food vendors, games and activities for children, health screenings, special performances by students of SCS and Sycamore Center, featured performances by Angela Primm (ordained minister and renowned gospel artist), commercial venders, special guest speakers’ music, and much more. THERE WILL BE FUN FOR ALL!

Golf Classic

Join us for the 2022 Chamber Golf Classic!

The Chamber golf outing is a favorite among many local businesses and organizations. It’s been around for over 30 years, yet never gets stale. New things are being added and improved each year. It brings businesspeople, golfers, volunteers, and sponsors together for a great day of friendly competition, food, drink, and lots of networking.

While it may sound cliché, many deals are made on (or near) the golf course. You never know who you’ll meet while eating breakfast, volunteering, or working your business’ tent.

Last year, over 100 were in attendance, including those who played, volunteered, came for dinner and prizes, or just stopped by to say hello.

The Chamber would like to personally invite you to come and hang out for the day. And while you’re at it, don’t forget to register for the dinner. We hope to see you there!

Sponsorships Remaining:
Shot Glass Shot Gun Start
Hole-In-One

It’s not too late to sponsor a tee sign or double logo package!
Double Logo sponsorship: $175
Tee Sign: $125
*We are now sold out for golf teams! Thank you to all of you who bought a team this year!

  • Teach moms and their children how to grow their own vegetables.
