Chamber New Building Prep Day!

Most of you know that we recently purchased our 1st Ave S location! Most of you also know it needs a face lift!! TOMORROW, Tuesday, August 26th at 5pm (whenever you can get off of work change clothes and come to the Chamber) we will be doing a demo day!! We will be getting everything off the walls, ripping down the 1980's wall paper, moving some of the larger furniture away from the walls and painting the outside window wells!! Many hands make light work so we are asking for a few volunteers to help us! It should not take too much time as long as we have a good amount of volunteers!! Please let us know if you are able to attend so we can make sure to have enough beverages and snacks on hand! Thank You!
