Welcome to Morton Bags
Each year, the Morton Chamber of Commerce partners with the Village of Morton to distribute Welcome to Morton bags. Each new resident receives a bag when they get their water hooked up at Village Hall. Chamber Members are invited to provide an item for the bags at no cost. When our offices are ready to put a new batch of bags together, we send an email out to all of our Members with the number of items we need and a deadline for brining them to our offices. We typically distribute over 400 bags each year.
