Starting off with 35+ vendors and farmers from around the area, our community will now have fresh organic produce and arts & crafts every Saturday and a gathering place to see your neighbors and friends. Here are the details and you can also look at the flyer below:

The Car Show afforded us many a new member, which we are extremely grateful for. Not the least of whom was the Mustard's Last Stand Hot Dog stand run by influential local Dan O'Brien. If you were in any way a part of either the Car Show & Street Fair or the 29 Palms Grand Prix, then you had the pleasure of getting a whiff of America's favorite food. Welcome this local stand to the Chamber.

“Getting phase two of our expansion project to this point has been a long, tedious and, at times, frustrating journey. Originally planned to be a wing added on to the library and archives wing, it is now going to be a separate building,” Les Snodgrass , said, noting the building will house a 1,500-square-foot multipurpose room, a catering kitchen, restrooms and storage spaces.
