For the Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD – The Marshfield Area Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MACCI) will be celebrating the rich history that makes Marshfield what it is today through many events – one specific way is with a memorial fundraiser limited edition, “Marshfield-opoly™. It’s an exciting way to celebrate the many businesses that still serve our community today.
Just like today, 150 years ago, Marshfield was looking for ways to continue to grow and develop. Leaders were looking for ways to build strong industries, attract labor and encourage families to settle.
Known as a “hub city”, Marshfield was an ideal location for transportation, manufacturing and healthcare.
Being in a rural area has also made Marshfield an ideal place to develop family farms and dairies.
All of these assets have contributed to making our community what we know today. Our core industries remain the same thanks to strong business leaders who have attracted talented workers.
MACCI continues to recognize that same need today, to develop, recruit and retain the local workforce to keep businesses here for another 150 years. In order to continue to go beyond local workforce development and talent development, the Marshfield Area Chamber has developed this special anniversary keepsake, Marshfield-opoly™ to not only commemorate this 150 year celebration , but also to provide funding for many of our talents. and workforce development programs.
The Marshfield Area Chamber Foundation provides financial support for many programs, including but not limited to Youth Apprenticeship, Reality Stores, Crusin’ for Careers, Marshfield Area Career Expo, Heavy Metal Tours, Health Career Connections, and more again.
Only 1,500 copies of this special anniversary edition game will be available. The cost per game is $40. Orders can be placed by phone at 715-384-3454, Ext. 100 or email [email protected]
The chamber anticipates that the Marshfield-opoly™ game will be available in early 2022. For each game sold, the Marshfield Area Chamber will donate $1.50 per game to the North Wood County Historical Society.
