Infomercial on Canton to Premiere at Elks
Canton, IL - The Spoon River Partnership for Economic Development (Partnership) is inviting the public to attend a "Premiere Party" for a 30-minute infomercial about Canton, which was filmed by crews from WMBD Channel 31 and FOX 43 over the last few months in and around the city. The film will debut at an event to be held at the Canton Elk's Lodge on Thursday, September 30, from 5:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m. There is no cost, but reservations are required because of limited seating. Reservations can be made by calling the Partnership at (309) 647-2677.
The commercial, which is a expansion of the "We do that here!" brand introduced in a 30-second commercial last November, explores five different elements of life in Canton, including economic development, education, healthcare, quality of life and recreation. Local officials, representatives from Cook Group, Inc., plant managers, business owners, doctors, educators, and Canton residents are all featured in the film, speaking out about how and why they believe Canton is a unique community that offers far more than most cities its size.
"This commercial showcases all the reasons Canton is a very special city," says Mark Rothert, Executive Director of the Partnership. "Not only do we have excellent opportunities for businesses that may want to locate or expand here, Canton is a city that offers a warm welcome and great amenities to families that choose to make our community their home."
The commercial will air on WMBD Channel 31 and FOX 43 in early October, and a schedule of times and channels will be available at the event.
