Chamber Letter

The St. Johns Area Chamber of Commerce services Clinton County which lies in the heart of Michigan. Organized for the purpose of advancing the civic, commercial, industrial, professional and the economic interests of the area, the Chamber has grown enormously over the past few years. More than 250 members represent all aspects of our business community. New schools, a booming industrial park, a renovated state-of-the-art hospital, historic churches and spectacular new housing projects are just a few of the positive images in St. Johns that make our area a great place to live and work.

Rich in historic lore and beautiful Victorian buildings, Clinton County has more than 60 sites registered with the Clinton County Historical Society, most of which were built between 1857 and 1900. Clinton County is rich and varied in agricultural area. Nearly 90% of the farm land is classified as prime growing soil. Spearmint and peppermint are unique to Clinton County, ranking first in Michigan’s mint production averaging 12,000 acres. Additionally, Clinton County farms have produced many state-wide records in the production of cattle, sheep, hogs, soybeans, corn and milk.

Each year, during the second full weekend of August, St. Johns celebrates their famous "Mint Festival" which is showcased to more than 80,000 guests. The City Park and Clinton County Fairgrounds are filled with Arts & Crafts, an Open Air Flea Market Emporium, a Grand Mint Parade, sporting tournaments for any age and a Championship Rodeo.

As the Director of the St. Johns Area Chamber of Commerce, I invite you to browse through this publication and visit us page by page. For more information on recreation, hotels, service clubs and more, please call us at (517) 224-7248. The Chamber office will graciously send you any information you need.

Sincerely,

Director, St. Johns Area Chamber of Commerce
