From the January 4, 2010, edition of The Butler Eagle...
Many Butler County residents hear the name Butler County Chamber of Commerce but don't fully understand what the organization is all about. Most people probably know that it has something to do with businesses, but beyond that their knowledge about the actual workings of the organization is not extensive.
ARMSTRONG and Butler Downtown have announced the newest addition to the City of Butler: Free Wi-Fi in Diamond Park! Community members can now enjoy the outdoors while checking e-mail, working on school projects or conducting online business. Diamond Park is located directly across from the Butler County Courthouse and is easily accessible to businesses, restaurants and retailers. For more information, visit ButlerDowntown.org.
The online directory of Butler County Chamber of Commerce membership is online! It includes some great new features such as direct links to member's websites, email addresses, and even a mapping tool to help you find our member's locations. Searching for someone or a particular business? Just type the info into the search box and get the answers you're looking for immediately.

Come join us to watch DiMartino Ice Company transform big blocks of ice into one-of-a-kind works of art in Diamond Park! Warm up at the Chili Cook-Off where local restaurants and organizations will compete to win the coveted Chili Bowl trophies, voted upon by all who attend and sample the chili. Try local wines and brews and then visit Main Street restaurants featuring Carved in Ice specials for the day.
Dress your kids warmly to play on the ice slide and the big throne and to meet the Snow Queen, Snow Princess, and the warm-hugging Snowman. Enjoy local music and entertainment while you join the festivities. The ice sculptures were a big hit with the thousands of people who attended last February. It may not be in the 70’s on February 11th again, but you are guaranteed to have some winter fun in the middle of a slow cold month!
All proceeds benefit the Butler AM Rotary Charities which are listed on the website. Butler A.M. Rotarians are the folks who gave Butler the Alameda Purple Playground. Businesses interested in purchasing ice blocks or sponsorships can find the details on the website or by calling 724.991.2212. The same is true for restaurants and organizations wanting to showcase their chili creations, wine and brew vendors, or food truck operators.
CARVED IN ICE is Butler’s big winter fun event, so don’t miss it on February 11th come sun or snow!!
