The Chamber is starting something new!  It’s called a PCC Rush and once or twice a month we will plan a Rush for either a lunch or Happy Hour.  Nothing formal, fancy or stuffy just a fun drop-in time to meet with other Chamber members while visiting Chamber member businesses.  No registration for the Happy Hours but we are asking people to register for the lunch just so our hosts know what to expect.  Remember there is no cost to attend you just pay what you order.

First up is the Twisted Italian next Thursday October 13th from 11:30 to 1:00pm. Twisted Italian is located at 9940 W. Happy Valley Pkwy, Peoria 85383.  If you plan to go out for lunch that day come up and join us!
