Chamber December Mixer at the National Park Service

Many of you saw how lovely the National Park Service building was decorated for the Electric Night Parade.  Their staff spent a lot of time and their efforts have been noticed.  The Chamber would like to think they're decorating just for our Mixer coming up this Wednesday, December 9th at 5:30pm, but we know better.  The Park Service has been very involved in holiday events and decorating for several years and we truly appreciate their efforts.

Please plan to stop by and see the changes taking place with the NPS.  You'll have time to tour the facility and ask any questions that you might have and just hadn't had the opportunity to ask.

Also, please go to the link below for the flyer advertising January's Mixer at the Community College.



The beautiful cartoon maps are now available at the Chamber office.  Please stop by for as many as you'd like.  We have the pre-folded versions and the flat (roll-up) type for you're use.

Road Alternatives Input Needed

Please review the press release posted below and attend the City Council Meeting if you'd like to voice your opinions/solutions.
