Leslie is a picturesque small town located in the heart of south-central Michigan. A rural community surrounded by farms and family-run businesses, Leslie is conveniently located on route I-127 just 15 miles North of Jackson and 25 miles South of Lansing.
The Leslie Area Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1975 to promote chamber members and encourage growth in our community. We do this by welcoming new businesses, providing opportunities for business networking, and advertising our events to neighboring communities.
Each year our Chamber, led by its eight-member board of directors, organizes and sponsors several events. Monthly luncheons feature notable speakers and offer members valuable networking time. Two special events are designed draw people to the city of Leslie. Every August we hold an area-wide garage sale by encouraging local residents to hold a sale on the same weekend. Small Business Saturday is a great day to shop local in Leslie on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. On the second Saturday of December each year we hold the Leslie Lighted Christmas Parade through downtown Leslie.
President John F Kennedy said, “a rising tide raises all boats.” Together we can accomplish more than any one organization or business.
