The mission of the Hillsdale County Chamber of Commerce is to promote Hillsdale County, our members and businesses through programs and services which stimulate economic growth and foster commerce.
Hillsdale County Proud is a recognition program of the Hillsdale County Chamber of Commerce.
Purpose: Celebrating those who love to work or live in Hillsdale County.
The HCCC wants to share your story on our Website and at our events! Each month we are going to recognize a Hillsdale Champion and share their story to inspire others who love our county.
I was not the typical high school graduate, who around graduation time could be heard saying, "I cannot wait to get out of this small town." And, never did I ever think I could be so lucky to land a position in my career, in the community where I grew up - Hillsdale! But I did! And yes, I do feel so blessed to have been able to have a career and raise my and my husband’s home town, watching our boys attend all the same schools we did, and even livingin the same house that my husband grew up in! I wanted my kids to grow up in Hillsdale County, be in all the same school programs, participate in all the sporting activities, be active in scouting and 4-H, fish and play on Baw Beese Lake, and just enjoy and appreciate how easy it is to have lots of activities in our lives by living in Hillsdale County.
Hillsdale County has many, many lakes for any kind of lake fun you would want. Beautiful Sandy Beach on Baw Beese Lake even has a bike path leading to it from Hillsdale , extending to Jonesville. Sauk Theatre in Jonesville presents many amazing plays each year to enjoy watching or participating in. Our local eateries offer a nice variety of different menu types and some even offer live music. Well known musical artists have been known to put on shows at these same venues. Who needs a Starbucks when we have Jilly Beans to make us any kind of coffee/tea specialty drink you can dream of!
Speaking of entertainment venues, the Hillsdale County Fair has our favorite fair treats and activities to watch or participate in, and the concerts they offer are just like
going to The Palace of Auburn Hills.
Last but not least, is the pride we all share, in having the beautiful and nationally renowned Hillsdale College within walking distance of downtown Hillsdale. Many of us have had the privilege to further our education at Hillsdale College, watch sporting events on campus, or attend many other activities open to the public. Hillsdale College's campus is truly spectacular in its historical beauty and modern advancements, as it is constantly evolving and growing.
Over the years, I have heard the following statement said by many, "There is nothing to do here." I beg to differ. The quality of life is what you make of it and Hillsdale County offers
most anything you need to enrich your life.
