Community Guide

The proof of the Alcester-Hudson Community Guide is on its way, but has been delayed.  Please check back soon to review the information in the guide and let us know about any changes that are needed.

Thank you!


The AACC (Alcester Area Chamber of Commerce) is pleased to announce it is starting the process of creating a community guide for the Alcester and Hudson area.  When completed, the magazine will be a community handbook for current residents to showcase the businesses, organizations and activities in our community with a focus on increasing awareness of what is available in our community.  This information publication will be directed toward current residents, new residents, potential new businesses and visitors.  In addition to an annual activities calendar, the magazine will feature virtually everything the community has to offer including business services, education, health care, recreation, community clubs and organizations, churches, city services and much more.

The AACC’s goal is to make publication something it can do at least every couple of years.  Gathering the information for this first publication will be the most difficult.  The AACC encourages residents, business owners and organizations to review the information it has on www.alcestersd.org and contact the chamber at alcestersdchamber@gmail.com if any of the information needs to be updated or to submit additional information, photos or articles. 

In addition, the AACC is looking for great photos for the guide and will be hosting a photo contest until April 30, 2019.  The AACC will give the person who submitted the photo $5 in Chamber Cash for each photo used in the guide for non-advertisement purposes and $50 for any photo chosen for non-advertisement purposes for the cover of the guide.  Photos should be of the Alcester and Hudson communities, events, residents, organizations and businesses.  Photos can be submitted to alcestersdchamber@gmail.com or dropped off at the City of Alcester offices.  It is preferred that the photos be in electronic form if possible, but it is understandable that some older photos may not be available in that format.  A photo release must be completed by any person still living that is in a photo.

The AACC will be partnering with NCP Specialty Publication for the production of a magazine promoting the Alcester and Hudson area in general and its business community in particular.    Representatives from NCP will be contacting area businesses and organizations about placing ads in the guide as well as gathering information for the guide itself.  The ads placed in the guide will help pay for the guide.  The more ads purchased and content collected, the better the guide can be!
