Over the years, charitable gambling has provided a source of funds for many organizations in the community.  Dollars are raised by selling pull tabs, tip board and paddle tickets since 1997 at the Mapleton Municipal Liquor Store.  These funds have allowed the Mapleton Area Chamber of Commerce use of local dollars to support local organizations.

To apply for Charitable Gambling Funds, please complete and submit the electronic application here.


The mission of the Mapleton Area Chamber of Commerce is to lead, inform and advocate business interests for members and to promote a healthy community and growing economy.  Chamber members gather for a regular business meeting the second Thursday each month.

If you are a business owner in the Maple River Area or if you are an individual interested in sponsoring and promoting our community, please consider joining forces and becoming a member of the Mapleton Area Chamber of Commerce.
