Thank you to everyone who showed their support and attended our 2022 Annual Meeting. We had a great time and had the opportunity to give awards that were well deserved by members of our community. We were fortunate enough to be joined by some of our local elected officials as well. Thanks again to everyone who helped and attended our event.

We are collaborating with the Paynesville Community Ed to present Winterfest 2022! A new event this year! More details below.

Please take the time to renew your Chamber membership. We wouldn't be able to host our many events without members like you! Feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

The Paynesville Chamber now has it's own mobile APP! It's free to download. Just have to search "Paynesville Chamber" in your app store to find our app. You can find more information about current members, upcoming events, push notifications and more!
